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..

If you had unlimited money complete rebuild then turbo.

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

thas a big desion but i'd rather have the bottom end torque than the top end speed

then supercharger.... supercharger = acceleration and turbo is top end.
