He says the turbo and engine is in great condition.

It's easier than getting a SC right now.
I was chatting with Chris Wood (ex-ARB guy) about turbo vs. supercharging...He mentioned that he has driven both versions and that the turbo charged rig seemed "smoother" and faster. The problem I have with a turbocharger vs supercharger (aside from the cost difference) is IMO a turbo has to "build up" pressure. At least that has been my experience

So with a turbo you get a surge of power after say 2000+ rpms but with a supercharger the power should be more linear, correct?
