the for/against arguments I have always heard for each are follows:
1- superchargers work better when you need more low end power, but they do not produce as much high end power.
2 - superchargers are more linear, but their is parasitic drag at all power levels.
3 - turbos take wasted energy and turn it in hp.
4 - turbos can be additive and keep making more power for as much turbo as you want to add.
I have seen youtube vids of qaud turbo drag cars. I know a guy that worked on one (he works for a company that CAD aided robot work) that made 2100 hp. Top fuel. Was just insane.
