Re: 98 Prelude...Turbo? or Jackson Racing Supercharger?

Get a feel for your car first and plan everything out.

If you get a JRSC - you can't use a front strut tower bar and will be dealing with the typical belt issues


If you go turbo - you may have oil issues, or not. Requires alot more planning.


For either situation, plan to build your bottom end first. Otherwise you'd be stuck with only 6lbs of boost "safely".

What are you plans? I'd suggest starting with your brakes/suspension - then work your way to the block, then boost.

Check what you need to pass emissions with first. It's expensive to do a build and you don't want to end up building a car that wont pass because you went OBD1 or can't get the piggyback working right.

Re: 98 Prelude...Turbo? or Jackson Racing Supercharger?

if you are feeling creative, you can go Rotrex. Link:Rotrex A/S
I have no experience with it whatsoever, but the gains are awesome. Its like a turbine spun by a belt.
King Motorsports switched from JRSC or Comptech SC in their DC5, to Rotrex, and they gained an assload of power with Rotrex.

what i mean by being creative is that you'd have to fabricate something to mount the Rotrex S/C on.

Correct me if I'm wrong but is this not just a centrifugal supercharger such as what you would see from ProCharger in V8 and other applications vs. a twin helix as a JRSC would be???? From my understanding a twin helix "roots" type blower is the better method of belt driven forced induction.

OP, there is very extensive research to be done. Unfortunately, its not as simple as asking a question. There are tons of variables. Do you want something you can put 10k miles on per year? What kind of hp are you looking for? What do you want to spend? How much down time can you sacrifice? What kind of value depreciation are you willing instill? Figure on this....you go turbo or S/C you are going to pour thousands of dollars and dozens of hours into something you will never get back.

not saying that your wrong, but you have some mis-information. The centrifigul is the most efficient of the superchargers. Roots type is the least and the twin screw is the every day supercharger.

Re: 98 Prelude...Turbo? or Jackson Racing Supercharger?

Oh dear. It seems we are breeding a generation of good for nothings.

Like neverdun said, before we can help you on this journey, you need to work out what you want. Then, do your research (I'll even start it for you - Click Here!) and come back and ask a specific question.

Just out of curiosity, is this your first car? If it is, then what makes you think you are ready for the trials and tribulations of boosted motoring? I must be getting old, because I just can't work out why the hell every young bloke today wants to drive the fastest car in the world as soon as they get a license. You've got the rest of your life to own a fast car. However if you own a fast car at the start of your life, you mightn't have much more.
