It is possible to have a turbocharger and a supercharger at the same time in a car . That's why we use turbocharger so that we can use exhaust gases to run supercharger . In today's automobiles turbocharger and supercharger both are used to get maximum power from an engine economically.

Beside above, what makes more hp turbo or supercharger? A supercharger doesn't work off the exhaust gas, it is attached to your engine and spins with the crankshaft. When the crankshaft spins the supercharger, it forces air into the motor. The turbo is more efficient as it doesn't require engine power to spin it, so it makes more power per boost.

Similarly one may ask, can I put a supercharger on a stock engine?

Supercharging can be a straight bolt-on installation, and it works well with stock heads, cams and pistons. What's more, it delivers better low speed throttle response and torque than a naturally aspirated engine with a big carburetor, big valves, high compression and "hot" cam.

How much HP can a turbo add?

Turbochargers Increase HP. Hanging a turbo on a small engine allows a little engine to breathe big. With only 6 to 8 pounds of boost pressure, a turbo can increase power output 15 to 25 percent or more over a naturally aspirated engine. Turbos are back.
