I love a pontiac 400. owned a 76 and 77 t-a. my personal opinon I prefer super chargers. pacston or wipple.it's belt drive and smoother performance increase. where as a turbo uses exahust pressure and tends to be erractic and anoying to me.


well i dont really want to do a belt drive because i dont want to hurt the hood by wrecking it and putting one on there plus the big difference for me in performance is a turbo has lag by my Pontiac has almost 450 ft lbs of torque so i dont need anymore power at take off i kind of want the lag so i can make more top end power the only problem is i cant find a single company that will make a turbo kit for a 76 trans am 400

Ok so maybe you were right i decided to go with a 871 blower on it instead of a turbo what do you think about a blower that size
