Except that...Minivans are way easier to enter and leave, especially when you're slinging kids into them, they have way, way more room for stuff inside them, like bags, toys, sports equipment, bicycles, etc, and little shithead kids cannot possibly bash a nieghbouring car-like that one you keep next to it in the… » 9/23/14 3:46pm Yesterday 3:46pm

For the record-dude here, big fan of Mug's Shaving Soap for my, er, mug.

A turbo is more efficient (though both will drop your mileage), but a supercharger isn't necessarily heavier-it all depends on the supercharger. This HKS system uses a centrifugal compressor, just like a turbo would-it's just belt driven instead. I cannot imagine there would be any weight difference; I'd expect this… » 7/22/14 2:57pm 7/22/14 2:57pm
