Default RSX (base) versus RSX Type S supercharger

Hi guys/gals, I just bought a new RSX (base) and want to do some
upgrades. I've added a nice pioneer sound system, now for some
horsepower. I would like to put a super/turbo charger on it, but
can't find any for the base model (only type s). Can someone explain
the difference between the two cars that would allow a supercharger on
the type s but not the base? And are there good mods that I can do
other than a super/turbo that would get me up close to 200 hp? What
about electric superchargers? Are they worth the money?

thanks a bunch,
Will

there's a new supercharger coming out for the base 5 speed and cybernation
already makes a pretty sweet turbo kit if u have the money for it.

With a base there's no real way you're going to hit 200hp with n/a, turbo is
the only way to go.

What are the differences between the RSX and -S models?
(not just HP rating,the details)

What's the HP ratings for each model?

Type S: 6 speed, larger front brake rotors, type s floor mats, slightly
thicker front stabilizer bar, paint matched
side skirts, chrome exhaust tip, titanium shift knob, perforated leather
trim, 6 cd changer with bass module
in spare tire, higher compression ratio, higher redline, higher rpm needed
for max torque

A higher compression ratio would be less desirable for a turbo
application,I believe.
