The supercharger gives you better low-end torque, while the turbocharger is more efficient at high rpm.

If you have the money go Supercharger...but prepare to prepare the rest of your vehicle for the extra power...body mods etc

the best way to go would be a turbo because it is free horsepower because it is ran off your exhaust. a supercharger takes horsepower to run (in which on avg. it takes 50% and then you gain 75% back). as where a turbo will give you double or triple the power and not take any away

Go turbo, simply because with a turbo there's so many things you can tweak even after its been installed that will give you more horsepower. Turbo's sound a lot better than a supercharger does, and you can get a lot more for your money with a turbo! Do a turbo build if you have the money. Just don't do a daily driven civic with something like 25psi of boost, that would crazy and you'll ruin that engine in no time. Turbos require a lot of extensive work, basically you need to upgrade everything to handle the boost properly without ruining your motor.

Go turbo. not only can you control it alot more than a supercharger (psi), when yer not running high boost you will get alot better gas milage because its re-burning the un-burnt fuel and cycling it threw your system... Go turbo, I would. And the blow-off sounds awsome! -Eazy
