personally I'd go with the turbo because it doesn't use any power from the motor to spin and create more power.

Just drop a small block chevy in that thing and you wont have to worry about turbos and super chargers. But if you insist go with the super charger it will give you more power, but to do it right you will have to make major mods to the rotating assembly and heads. the power icrease you get will make up for the rotational drag on the motor. compaied to a turbo, with spool up time and exuast heat.

I have a h22 engine in my Prelude, if you wanna go turbo on it your gonna have to do an overhaul of the head and low end. The engine is great, but it won't handle turbo too long on stock internals. Make sure you get a good intercooler and don't go with cheap pipping.

id personally say it a go n go . they both have thier ups and downs. supercharger is good for lond runs but turbo(depending if u got turbo lag) is thier with torque. i have a turbo but like typical turbo obsticles, it blew my pistons rings but id personally still go turbo. dont go 2 big. go with a T3/T4 garrett turbo and a turbonectics set up. another thing. b18 trannys go better with h22s. h22s tanny suck. and make sure u really upgrade ur engine mount cuz oes arent meant fot that amount of torque. ull rip off thechassis eventually or constantly change them

Turbo. With low boost (psi) you will get better gas milage because its re-circulating the unburnt fuel, but thats only when yer not rompi'n on it. and it sounds awsome.
