    Dont no if this has been asked before if it has my apologise

    I understand that a Turbo needs alot more than just bolting on where as a Supercharger is just a bolt on and in the end give the same amount of power.

    My question is:

    If you do all the mod needed for a Turbo to work at its best but fit a Supercharger will it be better??

    As well as could you fit both a Turbo and a Supercharger??

    cool thanks..

    I think Superchargers sound amazing i think maybe with a small turbo to keep at low revs and a supercharger to pick up where the turbos starts to loses it edge would that work?

    It works the other way round...The SC will run out of puff at higher revs, but performs linnear from tickover upwards...The Turbo, depending on size, will kick in from about 2,000 to 3,000 revs, (or wherever it is set to)

    Most engines that are na as standard tend to be turbo or supercharger freindly or at least one seems to work better.

    The MX5 seems to have both options readily available.

    Best bet is one of the MX5 forums where you will get far more detaied info.

    Yes the early cooper S was supercharged, and also used an Eaton M45 but with a different casting.

    I'm guessing the early R32 Cooper S's had the same 'Charger?
