i dont have either but as far as what i have seen. if you want something you can still cruise with reliabilty and not upgrade your internals just run low boost with a spercharger , any belt driven supercharger is the way to go, if your going for racing and are going to build your whole motor, go with the sts setup

turbo has a lot less lag on the motor and a lot easier on it to. im putting a single turbo on mine good thing about a turbo charger is when you want more power you can just turn the boost up and there it is then when you dont want so much just turn is down as far as price and if you dont want seriuos hp just put a single turbo in the rear with a methanal kit dont get sts turbo way to expensive do research by all you need have a local muffler shop put it in its not that hard and someone tune it professionally

The setup and plumbing for a twin turbo would be MUCH more complicated than a supercharger. Even though the hp is "free" on a turbo, since it doesn't need a belt like a s/c does, the power is always on with a s/c, not so with a turbo. There are ways around turbo lag, like smaller plumbing, smaller turbos, etc., but that'll compromise something along the power curve (i.e. less at top end). You can "tune" a s/c pretty easily as well, just change the size of the pulley. Either application will involve more changes and tuning to the engine though (i.e. bigger injectors, higher fuel pressure, different mapping, etc). Sounds like you want to give more hp to your daily driver, as such, I'd go with a supercharger. They're probably less expensive and less complicated to install than a twin turbo. One of those turbo setups that is at the back of the exhaust system might work, if you want a few more inexpensive hp's from a turbo system. However, because the turbo is located so far away from the engine, I'd imagine there be a significant loss of potential hp, as opposed to having the turbos located right next to the block.

listen it all depends on what you want to do and how deep your pockets are turbos are defenatly easier on your car but dont look as good lol. after you get tired of all the hp with a turbo you can just upgrade to a bigger one as long as you plan for it now put big injectors in fuel pump and stuff like that. either way youll have a blast superchargers rob your engine about 70 hp
