  • Turbo vs. Nitrous

    Alright... I'm torn. I pretty much know the benefits/drawbacks to both but I want to hear some other opinions. I really, really want to turbo the car but for less than 1/2 the time/money I could just run nitrous and be done with it.

    Which way would you guys go and why?

    If this is a DD, go nitrous.

    If not, you probably shouldn't even ask.


    Most of the turbo guys were nitrous'd at one point and turbo'd cause they got sick of filling the bottle.

      Nitrous is fun and cheap to get up and running, but filling the bottle adds up.

        If you can afford the time, parts, frustration, and have a dd; turbo.

        If you can afford the parts, but no dd; nitrous

        If you are pay-check to pay-check and its not that big of a paycheck; nitrous or slow turbo build up that mostly never comes to fruition for whatever reason like most "turbo" saturn ideas.

        Either way, by asking this question it kinda shows that there is a vast amount of more info you'll be needing so... research research research!

          50 shot nitrous on a healthy motor. Fine. Done. DD. Change your oil.
          [quote author="shortbus"]Stage 2 is great. Its covered by warranty, better fuel economy, the eaton screams louder so deer wont jump onto the road, it makes girls get wet, and the emissions produced will not kill songbirds or melt glaciers.[/quote]<br />[quote author="retardpartol"]...who is sober and noton any kind of intoxication whether is be ibuprophin[/quote]<br />LSJ phun

            god do i know that. i planned on buying somewhat turbo by summer, but unforeseen problems with the DD probably have prevented my finish time. small paychecks suck, so its a slow build that will be finished when it is. [img]{SMILIES_PATH}/lol.gif[/img]


            of course the nitrous will be the easiest and cheapest. the turbo way, you will probably forget parts that seem like nothing and the small parts add up quick.
