A turbo would be much more efficient on your auto than a supercharger. A turbo holds boost on an automatic. Actually you'd notice a HUGE difference in power. And the 2.4L would spool a pretty good sized turbo up pretty quick!

it's true, a turbo on this engine with an auto would be way more powerful, but the supercharger adds the power through the whole powerband. I want to see a turbo kit out and see how long the turbo lag is, because if it's short enough I'd maybe consider it over the supercharger, but I really, really hate turbo lag...

Thanks guys... this helps a lot... seems like the turbo... if they come out with one is the better choice for me. Now can I get the CAI with the Turbo??? Cause I read in other places that you really don't need both the CAI and the Supercharger... Is it the same idea here?? Sorry if I sound kinda car dumb... its because I am.

NO, the cold air intake will be useless with the turbo. A turbo will completely re-route your intake system. I'd go into further detail, but I'd just confuse you... And I can tell you that TRD will NOT make a turbo kit for the tC. This is something that will come aftermarket and will void your warranty... so I'd wait till thats up. hope this helps some...

Uhh.. blow off valves are an essential part of any turbo set up. Its not an option. And trust me, if you've never owned a turbo car, you don't understand. They don't have to be loud... but man, they catch people's attention. They actually release all the built up pressure in the intake system that can't be used after you let off the gas. You can't go without one...

yea, u can adjust the pressure or something so therefore leading to how loud it would be, right?
