I got a 1999 camaro Z28. It came with a ls1 i swapped it out for a new ls3 with 426 hp. Then i did the headers and a huge cam and couple other things chip and tuner i got 650hp to the rear. This is a drag car in the makings. Its a small tire car. I want to supercharge it but others say turbo. I been around superchargers all my life theres to lag in them. And i got 4:11 gears in the rear soooo its snappy

I have not really been around superchargers, but i have been around turbochargers. But i also don't pay much attention to the cars. I pay more attention to bikes. I would personally go with a turbo. A supercharger basically does the same thing, but i don't understand why you would want to give up some of your motor power to the supercharger. You would be losing power from the motor, but you would make up a lot more power with the supercharger. But then again with the turbo, you are not making as much power in the low rpm's. Where as you would not need any power from the motor to power the turbocharger. I also like the way that the turbo sounds and looks. The supercharger looks kinda bulky and sounds very annoying to me. But it is all personal preference, you should go with whatever you fell comfortable with.

Here is a picture of my dads bike. I don't currently have a bike...

Ya, they do have a good bit of lag too them, but when they kick in, it is like your driving a different vehicle.
