    Question Dodge srt-4 (Turbo) or Saturn Redline (supercharger)

    Hey, I'm going to buy a new car and I can't decide which would be better, the Dodge srt-4 or the new Saturn redline. One turbo charged the other supercharged. The Dodge has more torque and HP but the redline, in opinon looks better and is lighter. What i'm wondering is it better to have a turbo charger or supercharger? any thoughts
    What the F*#k is the internet?

    You are going to kick up a storm here....

    The Neon will be faster, faster off the line, from a roll. The looks are subjective and are different for everyone.

    The Saturn would be better for ease of driving, The suspension is not as hard and the power is more linear as opposed to a turbocharger.

    I think they both come in at around 27K.

    What are you looking for in a car? If it's straight line speed go for the neon!

    I know, I'm just talking right out of the box.

    The neon has great FACTORY aftermarket support. You can go from mild to wild and retain your warranty.

    I may get flamed but IMO the saturn corners better in stock from.

    My vote is for the neon though, better support and crazy power for 27K. Do a search for Phuqu and ACX and check out their dyno charts.

    they gassed the gearing on the redline, so it's functionally pretty slow.. as reported by SCC. i'm not sure if that is even 14 second (sea level) material..

    This is my little biatch in exhaust stage 1 form..


    A small turbo, so it isn't all tht laggy.

    Drive them both and see which one you like better. You should be able to get a hell of a deal on an SRT4 now..

    Default ok

    So we have a more votes for the srt-4, but one of the things i like about the redline is it has a nicer finish and looks more aggressive, however i hear what you guys are saying about the power, i have driven both and while the redline has good power throughout the srt-4 kicks u back in the seat, also i had the redline up around 7000rpm and it kicked out, i'm still not sure as this will be a daily driver, one thing i'm concerned about is the fact that i drive hard all the time and i'm worried i will blow up the turbo in the srt-4, and is it true most turbo engines need to be rebuild at around 160,000 km (give or take)

    well, you'll need winter tires on both. I doubt you'll blow the turbo up, let it cool and you'll be fine. The motor is plenty beefy. No major issues with them, or the PT turbo (basically the same motor).




    I wouldn't call either overly aggressive, or any sport compact for that matter.

    I am not a fan of neons, but definately more of a fan that saturns, imo the neon > redline and it actually looks better too

    In my opinion, SRT-4 > Saturn Redline (or whatever you call that damn thing.)



    Anyways,

    the price margin isn't all that much.

    If you want a fun, fast, easily modifiable car, I'd definately go for the SRT-4. Turbo applications put out more power and definately gives your driving experience and extra, "OMPH!"

    Superchargers, on the other hand, don't yield as much power as turbochargers do. Most superchargers aren't upgradable but that depends on the type of supercharger that is being used.

    There are several types of superchargers from Roots type, centrifugal and Eatons type. Different ones yeild different power ranges and some are more prone to heat soaking than others.

    I'd defiantely ditch the supercharged vehicle and go turbo. It's the real displacement replacement.

    you actually had to edit that response, and it still looks like sh*t . Captain grammar called, you're making him cry.

    Anytime you want to start running neons over moron, by all means let me know where I can meet you, and mine will be the first..

    In response to finboy, I always thought the saturn was a better handler. Different magazines, different reviews.

    they said the ion's long wheel base and 4X4 stance really hurt it in the handling department

    Ahh I never thought of it that way, Maybe they were saying it was more comfortable where the SRT is tuned for stiffer shocks. I've ridden in a SRT and it wasn't bone jarring but you could feel every tar strip and bump.

    But my vote still goes for the Neon. Over 260ft/lbs torque makes me drool. Not to mention MOPAR upgrades and a damn cute front end
