Default powerhouse turbo

Now I know this most likely was talked about before but I just have a few questions to ask.....1) I know a lot of people go with the saleen blower but I want something a little different like a turbo.. Are turbos safe for an everyday driver? What k,inda number can I put down safely on stock internals? Any any infor ppl have from experiences would be much appreciated... thanks in advance guys!

Not to mention on turbo you dont have any belts brakes as you do with a s/c setup. Always remember a s/c takes hp to make hp, unlike a turbo . Turbo is the most reliant form of power adder there is point end of story. Why do you think they are like 10x more turbo cars than they are s/c cars.

well on our side the best turbo car( rygen) is running low 12s and the fastest s/c car is running high 12s but on street tires so possible mid 12s. i dunno if that helps o_O turbo is at lower boost as well. rygen uses the ph turbo also.

Just remember superchargers take hp to make hp; turbo's don't. Naturally a turbo at the same psi will put better #'s because of that.
