turbo would be better for an rsx and would be faster. out of the hole, the supercharger would take off faster because of turbo lag but overall, the turbo will give you more hp and more opportunites to modify the turbo. also, turbo just goes great with a 4 cylinder engine.

Turbo. They have more power, more fuel economy, and just about everything you could want.I'd go with an STS turbo or fab up my own remote mount turbo kit.

Turbo pros: is more fuel economic, delivers a lot more power in the high endTurbo cons: more dangerous if not tuned and maintained properly, turbo lag gets a thumbsdownS/C pros: cheaper, easier to install, linear gain throughout the powerbandS/C cons: you max out power at about 375whp, excessive wheel hop in 1st gear (motor mounts help with this)
