i have this thing going on with my bogan friends about turbo vs supercharger

if a car i had could be turbo OR supercharged, then i would choose the turbo

i like the sound of turbo spool, rather than the whine of a supercharger

but yeh true that turbos have lag

although all motor FTW

Superchargers don't have lag, but they do steal some of the engine's power, against which they greatly improve torque. You need to have a blower which gives you a lot more power than it takes to run. On my Benz there is a supercharger blow-by valve that operates at low revs - sounds awful.

Mercedes-Benz have recently changed all their supercharged engines to turbo (or biturbo) for increased power and torque at lower fuel consumption.
