As a fan, supercharged, simply for the visual and aural sensations. No question about it in my mind. Then nitrous, then turbo.

The most choked back (a pale 14.5% OD?) combo of them all - supercharged. As twostep says, they're the baddest looking and sounding too. Other than 3-4 tenths in performance, the bottle feeders look and sound no different than a few hundred T/S cars. The turbo cars are cool, but lack the violence and hair-raising excitement of the blower cars.

Grew up with two local Pro Mod legends right down the road from each other with two different set ups. Janis and Oddy

Turbo cars lack violence? Show me a nitrous or blown PM with the front wheels in the air at half track?

Blowers are my favorite, but if I was putting a car together with intentions of leaving my mark and winning championships, I'd build a Turbo with a Clutch.

Turbos are the next best thing these days, Didn't Ricky Smith have one built and the ended up selling it to...?? I forget off hand because that person crashed his car? Don't get me wrong because there is nothing like a huge a$$ blower popping out of the hood because it won't fit under it.
