    turbo and supercharger will basically be the sme build (low comp pistons).. what yr si you have? if its a sohc.. just save for a b-series.. unless you dont mind making no more then 250-270 to the wheels in a tuboed with built internals.

    your pistons are high comp and cam is for na..

    Personaly i've been thinking about a supercharger,but you'd have better results and more tunability wtih a turbo.
