I think its a very good Question and if only people that have actually done this gave their opinions cutting thru the B/s would be much easier. And its not just about power, are these bolt on's reliable?does it severly shorten the life span of the motor?
Turboute summed it up perfectly. Perhaps he shouldnt have begun with "here we go again" but everything else he said was spot on.
Yes this subject has been covered at length. So if you do a search you will come up with a wealth of info on the topic.
But yeah its also cool to do it again for the new people.
I vote turbo. I wont go into all the reasons but I will state this one:
A supercharger uses engine power to create boost. A turbocharger uses otherwise wasted exhaust gasses to create boost.
