hows it ladies and gents,

looking at getting a few more ponys out of my falcon, standard xr6 engine
weighing up options between charger and turbo.
charger is obviously a s**t load easier to install/tune, but whats your opinion?

what have you guys experienced in your journeys with one of the above and any info is greatly appreciated on ease of install, performance wise and tuning wise, price not really an issue as both kits are not far off each other, got a j3 chip which i will get re programmed so any info on wether or not turbos can be tuned on those would be good to. im aware charger is easy to tune on a j3. and anyone know how to get hold of snort performance, seems they dont like to answer there phone!

cheers any info is appreciated.

Turbos can be tuned on a j3.
Depends what power you want. Or weather you want more power in the future. Turbos are better if you wanna keep turning it up in the future.

if your after most power, torque and faster 1/4 i will say turbo all the way...

Geoff from snort performance is a little crook at the moment and is having tests done. So just leave him a voicemail and he will definately get back to you.
