How possible is a turbo vs supercharger shootout?
I'm wondering why there hasn't been an advertised Turbo vs supercharger mustang shootout. And rather than have it fastest takes all. I'm thinking more like, on average, what's faster? The average turbo mustang? The average supercharged mustang?
Here's what I'm thinking....
If you could get 30 or so cars of each power adder to register, then hold a drawing, pick 16 cars randomly from each power adder. This would give you a 32 car field of your average turbo/supercharged cars, all street legal. Not as far as functional a/c and ps. But just a road worthy legal mustang. Maybe a 30 mile road test first. And hoods closed during competition for reliability tests. You could go more cars too, depending on how many wanted to participate. It would be cool to see 100 supercharged/turbo mustangs compete.
You could run it then to decide first, who's car is fastest/quickest overall. Then maybe top 5 fastest/quickest. Then average times from each field and come up with which group holds the the title. Then maybe after that, some of these turbo vs supercharger debates could hold some facts as to what makes more power, and what's the best adder for the average mustang.
What do you guys think? Any suggestions? How possible would this be?
