First of all, I'm assuming that you have an I6.

I'd recommend turboing because there are probably more kits around. Also, if you supercharge it you must consider where you'll run the pulley to.

Later on...In my dreams, I'll be turboing my baby. Probably a nice T70 seeing I can get those pretty cheap and brand new.

Yeah turbo for the I6, easier to fit and more power potential. There are a couple of complete kits around or just piece the bits together yourself.

Lol, either way - that's certainly the right way to go about it. Have a search, the pros and cons have been hashed out a few times on this site...

But yeah - imo turbo the way to go for the I6...

One thing for sure is theres lots of good turbo falcon info in these pages, so most of the brain work's been done for you... plus S/C's are a bit boring :wink:
