For an I6 I would go turbo, easier, cheaper and more power potential. Turbos also boost up really quickly so it will give you tons of low down power.

Not really, superchargers usually don't start building boost until well over 2500rpm with full boost close to redline (on centrifugal blowers anyway). Turbos on the other hand will have almost full boost at 2500rpm on the big I6.

you could go for a screw type blower. that'll make usful boost from almost idle.

Yes bore...The chambers are bigger on EBll engines...Non Tickford are 8.8 so with 3.9 pistons with there slight dish, I guess around 8.5 compression....Ideal for 10 / 15 Lb....Or more...
