Do you still have your X or did you sell it? I never did find a straight answer to that.

I would love to combine Tor and Werty by taking Tor's built 4.4L engine and putting Werty's new URD S/C on there! Shit tons of power without having to wait on the turbo to spool up

Still have it. In my brothers garage right now just sitting.

Took it out for a day to wash and spin everything last week. Forgot how much power I'd given up for this tc..

(RED) is Butters URD supercharger (not sure which one, maybe Gadget can tell us.) at 15psi (and we didnt get a good signal, thats why its broken up.)
Last is Motonxruchick and her N/A setup just for comparison

With the turbo system the boost is not a constant progressive pressure, it's all in and linear pressure from 3200rpm or so, this constant fixed pressure value allows the natural shape of the cars power curve (albiet enhanced by pressure from the turbo) to show.

So you see your engine make higher peak power with a more straight line growth to the curve due to the fact your pressure is always being increased so the curve is distorted into more of a straight line. Your power would keep climbing with RPM until you reached a point of A: the motor exploded, B: the head unit of the centrifugal was so overspun it was out of efficiency range, C: the belt could no longer maintain the friction between pulley and belt and loses traction.

Then again, i'm sure if we were at 14-15psi at redline this whole conversation would be mute as the curves would be no where near eachother anywhere above 2500rpm.
Some cool comparisons to chew on.

Yep! I have followed a lot of what you have posted on here actually and was all on board for the turbo thing, but I'm not looking for all out power or efficiency for that matter really. I plan to do most of my playing in the dunes and just offroad in general so the idea of instant power appeals more to what I will be doing. Plus that setup would make more than enough power for me! Hell a TRD S/C with supporting mods to break 300hp would probably be all I really need, but why not go just a little further right?

If I were in your shoes I would be all about the turbo for the reasons Jeremy posted and the efficiency factors.

Nice about like my DD. A POS beat up '99 Hyundai accent. I was noticing one day when I was getting on the freeway. I was going up hill and had it pinned in 3rd doing about 45mph so running like 4500-5000rpm and I was still getting 15+mpg. haha My car at WOT almost gets better mileage than babying my Taco.

The Taco is a hell of a lot faster than it though even at twice the weight of my car and if all else fails I can just run it over. haha

You've got almost a 1000 lbs on my DD. Curb weight: 2088 lbs. + 180lbs of me + 100lbs of speakers + some tools and fluids and shit.

You probably have twice the ponies that I do though... haha One day if I am loaded I would love to turn my little car into a sleeper. Strip it all out and put some V6 in it and turbo the shit out of it! haha Would be epic!

I don't exactly have a "daily drive" I walk to work and class... so when I do go anywhere I find myself driving the Tacoma more often than the Accent It's just more fun to drive. I usually use the accent for long distance drives like when I play Army on weekends and such.
