STS Twin Turbo vs. Supercharger

Does anyone out there know anything other than what I have read on the website regarding the STS Twin Turbo setup? It sounds sick and I'm about ready to pull the trigger, but have yet to see much info on it. I have a shop in the Dallas/Ft.Worth metroplex ready to place the order and get it installed, but I want to make the smartest choice. Does anyone know anything factual that could help make the right decision?

im debating the same also. turbo or supercharger. but not the sts kit. i was going to do a single turbo. after a long time of debating, ive decided to do a pro charger.turbo kits are very hot and very messy. lots of oil leaks. im not a fan of huge turbo lag either. yeah turbos sound cool and to say you have a twin turbo or turbo camaro, it sounds bad ass. but superchargers are a better and more reliable way to go. and im not bias towards either . im just going by whats going to make my life and my car easier/safer and better.

turbos are also more efficient because your using wasted energy in the exhaust to compress the air intake, creating better fuel efficiency and power.

you get great reliable power out of superchargers too. probably more reliable power than a turbo. turbos are messy and unless you really know how to take care of a turboed car, id go with a s/c. low maint.

when your looking to put close to 600 hp into a car, the mpg thought goes right out the window, no matter what you pick.
