Turbo or supercharger? and where.....

I am doing some more research in my 06 st and I am wanting to know what would my vehicle benefit better from a turbo or super. Also where is a good place to find one for an 06st?

No supercharger for our motor.
Try Focussport, Massive, HiBoost.
Google these, this should be enough to get you in trouble

Or google Squires turbo systems and have your local tuner modify their universal kit so you have a SMOG LEGAL remote mount turbo.

Focus Sport is just about the way to go. the HiBoost kit seems to be out and well the page isnt updated as much as it should be in my .02$. Or you can build one your self.

They had a bad ass supercharger in design I wish i could find the picture of it. But because where our pulleys are they mount the supercharger on driver side. But I just got a job today I might be going turbo this summer afterall! As long as i dont get in another wreck :-(
