whats your choice in the matter?? S/C on your tib or a turbo charger?? I am going to drop money down on the s/c for ripp mods, but i still wanna know what people think. and which is better to run nos on?sc or tc? 8)

well if you go turbo you can simple use the intercooler chiller from nitrious express, but hey i would go with ripp also, i will as soon as i have the money.
Personally I'd rather have an SC, easier to maintain in my opinion and you don't have all those hot exhaust gasses running through mechanical parts and causing wear. Not to metion getting more power at lower revs, but that's just me.

Not a big fan of all the exhaust plumbing necessary for a turbo. I like the idea of building up the motor N/A......headers, etc. and then putting a S/C in place without having to trash the prior mods.

tahts true i always thought about that, buying headers, etc and just adding a SC on it. But then i love turbo just because its a turbo and they sound a lot better then a SC. Vrruummm psshhh :P . Im not sure yet which one i wanna go either but the only thing i like about an SC over a Turbo is the low rev rpms

oh ya and by the way, does anyone have an sound clips of the SC? i heard tibgtspeeds, but wondering if anyone else had a sound clip of it??? ???

Better yet, can anybody get close enough to it to hear it?

that NX intercooler chill thing aint a bad idea. i think i'll add that to my shopping list.

Actually with the Rippmods SC you will get the best of both worlds are far as noise produced. You get the SC whine and their kits also use a BOV(bypass valve on SC's). SO you get the whine and the Psssssssst. So hey best of both not to mention people going "WTF was that. I dont know I think it was a turbo charger. No way it was a SC. WTF. I dont know but its bad a$$." Thank you for my little dramitization. Hahahah. I am planning on going with the Ripp Mods SDS.

wtf ibb, are u serious. who makes the BOV for it? i wanna get that :(

its a centrifugal SC. It is a regualr BOV but on those types they are called bypass valve. Same thing. Check out their website and see their kits.

My thoughts exactly. I had put up a topic about getting a S/C for the I4 so that after completing my N/A mods I could retain them and bolt up a S/C. Granted the gains may not be as significant as a turbo, but I still want to drive the car everyday, without worry of overheating or if my internals are going to give way under higher boost. I could only hope that someone would make a S/C for my I4.
