Naturally Aspirated vs Turbocharged vs Supercharged vs Twincharged Engines

Introduction

All car engines need air, fuel and a spark to run, but how that is achieved runs the gamut. There is quite the debate that has been raging for some time about whether naturally aspirated, turbocharged or supercharged engines are the best method for automotive excellence. Each method comes with its own set of benefits and drawbacks, so before you make up your mind it’s important to understand the good and the bad of each.

Naturally Aspirated (NA) Engines

Naturally aspirated engines draw air into the engine through an air intake, which depends on creating a vacuum to feed air into the engine’s intake manifold as needed. The only way to increase airflow to a naturally aspirated engine is to either replace the stock air filter with one that is less restrictive or to install a high-flow aftermarket air intake. The benefit of a naturally aspirated engine is that they are in general more reliable than forced induction engines, or engines that rely on a turbo or supercharger. The big drawback is that to have a high-output naturally aspirated car usually means having a large, heavy and gas guzzling engine.
