Either turbo or supercharger can be built/meant for whatever your trying to do. low end or high end. Whatever you are building the car/truck for. Route superchargers are more for bottom end. Centrifugal superchargers are more for high end. If you get a small turbo you can build boost almost instantly. It all depends on the housing size. Both inlet and exhaust housing size, mixed with the inlet and exhaust turbine wheels. Also things like higher compression helps more for power right away. Things like high compression and low boost. Or high compression and high boost if it's tuned really well. Plus building a motor and making it much more efficient generally will help all over the rpm span. I do agree strongly agree with Downey, if you want a lot of bottom end with the same work as doing the 3.8 with it not bolting up as originally thought you can just as easily swap in a 302 or 351 or whatever you want. There is more than enough info out there for doing a v8 swap into a Ranger. Very easy to just use explorer and or older fullsize f150/bronco drivetrain. Hit up the v8 section and see what's going on in their.
