    Set a power goal first.

    You won't spend that money wisely without a goal in mind.

    Why do you say that?

    That's kind of backwards. If you want to make your car significantly more powerful via forced induction, then you need to properly prepare for it. I would at LEAST get a "Stage 1" after-market clutch. Unless you're going completely balls-out with the turbo, your stock suspension and brakes will probably be okay for the time being, but I would definitely think about upgrading them in the near future...

    for why i dont like superchargers...
    cuz i have seen two civics built almost exactly the same by two of the people that go to my buddies shop all the time and ones turbo charged (i think its a td06, decent sized) and the other is supercharged (about the same size as the turbo if not a liittle bigger) and the supercharged on has higher cc injectors and both tuned by the same guy the turbo car was running more whp and more torque, i know its not always like that but thats just what i have seen.
    but if you want to by all means, dont let me shatter your dreams!

    but yes like everyone always says "whats power without control"
    get a better clutch setup (cuz honda clutches are shyte) and some suspension (whether it be some kyb's of tien's)

    then think about whether you wanna boost it or do a nasty n/a build!!!!!!!!!

    I agree, and turbo is more efficient than supercharger.
    But I would definitely go for suspension/clutch/flywheel/wheels etc. before you go super/turbo. thats just my opinion
