TURBO vs SUPERCHARGER | Garage Worx Nissans

In Drift, Video by fullboost

Out with the Nissan four cylinder and in with LS V8 grunt.

It’s hard to beat cubic inches and it’s easy to see why. At a recent Vic Drift practice day we caught up some a few of the guys from the Garage Worx drift team. Both Nissan Silvia’s are still boosted, Thomas’ is Magnuson supercharged while Moe’s is Garrett turbocharged but both have one thing in common, and that’s shredding tyres.

This was Moe’s first time out with the new turbo setup, the car did run a low boost supercharger previously. Now with around 700hp to the wheels, this was enough to literally melt the tyres. homas’ S13 is a very similar build path apart from the supercharged sitting atop of the engine.
