I realize this is going to sound condescending but it is what it is.If I did decide to buy a GT and twin turbo it, what would I have to do to the car to make it capable of handling 650 to 750 hp. I know I would have to get better shocks, breaks, and tires, but I'm not sure what else I would have to do.
I’d be willing to bet it has everything to do with who gives the manufacture the best deal on there products. And absolutely nothing to do with one being better than the other. (Turbo, centri, screw, etc.)I agree this is the internet, one can make claims and not have to prove anything. There is a reason, I agree with that as well. It most likely is what makes more money, might have nothing to do with most effective form of power adder. The thread is asking about putting twins on a GT, well there is no TT on coyotes from the factory so the OP should not consider them because well there is a reason they don't come that way; along with any BMR stuff, slicks, or much of the other go fast stuff. I guess the answer is the GT350.
I am betting it is packaging and reliability. Have a big V8? Superchargers package better, and the potential power advantage of turbos doesn't matter much. I don't think anyone has put in the work to get centrifical superchargers to meet OEM reliability standards. For example, having separate oiling systems for the supercharger (common with centrificals) I imagine would be a deal breaker for OEMs. But pricing you know is definitely a factor as well.I’d be willing to bet it has everything to do with who gives the manufacture the best deal on there products. And absolutely nothing to do with one being better than the other. (Turbo, centri, screw, etc.)
This sums it up.The main reason I didn't buy a 350-500, I knew I wanted to mod in everyway possible and build the engine to my specs. For me, buying a cookie cutter 350-500 knowing it is not unique to me was a deciding factor. Now if I wanted to buy one to sell some day and make money, absolutely I would have bought one. I don't collect coins, antiques, collector stuff, that's just not me. Have fun
I meant modern OEM reliability standards.Centrifugal superchargers were OEM on a several cars in the 50s and early 60s. They held up quite well, too. I owned two such cars, a 57 312 Ford and 61 Studebaker Golden Hawk. They didn't generate a ton of power, but it was enough to get your attention. I wish I still had that Ford. Those things are worth a lot now.
