You can supercharge your car easy for about $5000 CDN, and aside from having somebody manufacture you a bracket to hold the supercharger in place, it's a fairly easy install.
Turbos will give your car much more potential, but will require a lot more work to be done on the engine to make it worth while.
(what good is running the turbo at 4 or 6psi to be safe when it only kicks in at 3500 ~ 4000rpm?) With a supercharger though, you can safely run at 4 to 6 psi without any major internal work, and the power will be there right from the get go.
