Actually it is pretty stressful too, since both compress the air in the cylinders. That's their purpose, also the S/C is using power from the engine at the same time to create even more power, making power exponentially. So stress in the cylinder+ stress on th crank belt side. Turbos use exhaust velocity to spool, but also create more pressure in the cylinders. Soo.... there u go.
Also, thi is in the wrong are of the forum. Should have posted int Force Induction.
