turbo lag can be an issue if ur a hardcore racer... its where the turbo doesnt kick in for a while making starts slow and then giving large amounts of power... which isnt useful if ur opponent has a quicker start and is well ahead of you from the starting line... ull be playing catch up. then again nos can be expensive and not always legal

it depends on what you prefer i would go with turbo becous when your not pushing the car the turbo dose not spool up and it is not puting boost on the engine but you can get the extra power when needed wiht nos its the same but every time you spry the engine its harder on it than boost plus its easyer to adgust boost presure so that a stock block engine can handle it but if you spry the engine there is always the chance of it blowing evan with a shot as low as 75 but with a stock motor as long as you stay under 5 to 7 lb of boost with your turbo its safe

from my experience with both i would say turbo, cuz nitrous eventually runs out if u race ur car alot and turbo dosnt run out, but as long as u tune ur car right u can just do both

Turbo, but you might need a little engine work to get some high boost out of it. Honda motors are strong, but I would advise against running NOS on it. You can I think run like 8 pounds off boost on a stock honda motor. I know the turbo is more than NOS, but the turbo is well worth it. I would go with the turbo, it is a lot safer than the NOS and you wont risk blowing your motor or anything else as you would with the NOS.

Why not have both your car will be faster with a turbo and the NOS.
