Default Turbo or Procharger? ...

hey whats up? .. anyway im debating whether to get a Procharger or Turbo . What are the pros and cons? would my car last long? I have 35,000 on it right now, and im hoping to at least keep it till around 105,000ish, what extra things do I have to buy to make sure it runs well with them, I mean I dont plan on racing it, well, at least not often, only when I need to, I heard SuperChargers just kill you on gas, is the Procharger the same way? I hear turbos after a tune can give you the same or even better mileage...My car is a daily driver and I drive 70miles(65 of them highway) to work everyday so gas is somewhat an issue, practically the whole reason why I bought a v6 over a Mach1, i mean if its like a 2-3 drop off thats fine but if it more like 5 ... than i'll just get a hpipe and lts and call it a day... still slow but at least it'll sound slightly better..

With either one, as long as you stay out of boost your gas mileage won't suffer much. Once you starting hitting boost though, say bye bye to your gas. I think you would get better benefites with turboing your car since it's a V6, but i could be wrong. You just want to make sure you have a good tune and do everything right so you don't blow your engine. Talk to Teal Beast on here. He has a turboed V6.

turbo will make more power but cost more, procharger will cost less be eaier to install and wont make as much power. Both will eat gas if you get into boost otherwise its not bad at all.

turbo will give you a lot of top end, if you get a turbo i would recommend getting a ball bearing turbo dont get a brass bushing turbo, bad idea
