One of them does, but can't say as it seems to make a huge difference.

None at the present time, years ago I believe I almost bought a "63" Olds F-85 Turbo charged aluminum V8--4/speed CPE.

Glad I didn't back then, those turbo were having short bearing life problems do to oiling/lube related failures along with owner neglect. Turbo Chargers today are way more dependable on gas fueled engines, but adds to expense for performance power.....

No turbos are expensive and a lot of cars perform well without them.
