  1. Why is Turbo boost favored over Supercharging

    Community Lounge, Introductions and General Discus
    Why are turbos favored over superchargers by car manufacturers? Having owned both turbo assisted cars and those with superchargers I much preferred the supercharged cars for their instant power verses the turbo's lag in power coming on.

    Cadillac STS-V Series Forum
