Although I love all power adders I think turbo's cost too much in fabrication and tuning, but if you have the $$$ then go for it!

Second choice is a Supercharger for me and here there are two options. Roots style or centrifugal. The wife has a roots style in the AMG and although it's fun to drive you better be VERY careful not to twitch the throttle too far because before you can lift you just finished that gear and banged half way through the next with wheel slip. I've gotten it down to not slip but it takes practice with all that torque and such small weight. With a Centrifugal it's easier to feather the throttle and have the boost come on progressively to keep traction and ultimately get a better shot at a 1/4 mile time. I read an article of Mustang Shoot Outs that showed the same problem when they races the two. Btw, those of you that don't think there is enough torque down low in a centrifugal application have probably never driven one. There is PLENTY... but it's easier to feather.

Nitrous... Great air volumizer and good sorce of cooling the intake, makes plenty of power for little start up $$$ but catches up to you quick depending on the the amount of horsepower you shoot at eat run, and how many runs you want. The average 10# bottle will be empty after 8-12 runs depending on your shot size. Add the initial $1200-$1400 to set one up right and then additional $70 or so per bottle fill up... catches up.

My choice, although completely custom. I have a 410ci motor, fully built, tuned with a fast system, I'm waiting on my sc bracket to add my YSi centrifugal supercharger which I will chase with a very small 50 or 75 shot of nitrous at the track for additional cooling properties beyond what the intercooler will give me. Should make for a wild ride.

Here she is all motor.

You must be referring to a fogger system with the $1200-$1400 initial cost. Plate systems (for thos of us that still play with carbs) can be had for $500-$800 depending on shot size and number of stages. $70 to fill a bottle is pretty pricey; it's only about $4 a pound here last time I checked.

Prices vary by location but for me it's $65 to fill a bottle. Also when I said to build it right I was including the cost of a remote bottle opener and a bottle warmer. Those may be the difference in cost and I would not run without either.

well i don't know on truck but i've run nitrous on two mustangs and the one i have now, and i have switch to a supercharger, like stated above turbo's cost so much more.

IMHO- nitrous runs out to fast and sometimes when you want to have fun the bottle is low and then no fun, with spending the extra money for the s/c you will always have your power there and never worry bout the bottle running out.

No one chose a supercharger? WOW - now that's what I would go with. True, turbo lag is virtually a thing of the past, but to push enough air to boost our 5.9s, you need a big turbo. Turbos push your HP and torque curve way to the right...hence the kick in feeling at 3-4k RPMs. If you've ever driven a Cummins, you'll know what I mean....

A supercharger on the other hand pushes your curves to the left....essentially bringing your usable power back down closer to 2k RPM.

So...for general around town driving, you'll notice a bigger difference with a supercharger. Turbocharger would give you more bang for your buck, but only when you're really on the pedal.

As far as NOS - no friggin way, but just because I don't want to deal with the hassle of refill. +350hp isn't feasible in our engine (you'd leave the tranny on the ground) and a good supercharger would given you 150hp +/- with room to grow.

Not sure what results you're seeing but blowers top the list with 14 votes to 10 for the hairdryers and 2 for spray.
