If you have 2 identical cars in theory but 1 is NA or blower and the other is a turbo car and they both run say 10.00 in the 1/4 mile. What would the difference be in the MPH for both to achieve that 10.00? Will the turbo car need to on average run 10-15 mph faster for it to run the same elapsed time as the na/blower car? Just curious on a general level, don't need an exact number.

If they 60' the same and make the same power the MPH is gonna be the same.

10-15 mph difference with the same ET means one car leaves harder while the other car leaves softer but has more power and catches up at the stripe.

I think its hard to say for sure what happens. A turbo car may make more average power than a na or blower car because the boost can come in earlier and stay all in vs a more linear progression with a centri blower or na.

But depending on trans and gearing you can get into a tight power band to use na power or blower power well.

Roots blower instant power it may have a broad curve like a turbo

Even if they all make same peak power i would think given boost curves the turbo stuff will make more average power or more power earlier and run better. But lot of variables in gearing converters etc
