Hi guys, I’m looking to up the power of my mk4 r32, I’m looking for around 400bhp, what are the pros and cons of a supercharger compared to a turbo I.e cost and reliability.

That question has been asked many times before, search before starting a new thread.
To sum it up:
Supercharger is cheaper and easier to install.
Turbo requires more money and more skill/knowledge but is superior in power.
Both solutions will easily give you 400hp if done proper.
