New to FI

Alright, I'm kinda new at this forced induction turbo/super charger thing. Here's what I am lookin at. I'm gonna save up for about a year...and by then I should have enough for a turbo or a supercharger. I want to make my car last for a long time, so I don't want to do something that's going to make the engine blow (my car is fairly new)
So I would like to know what should I get? I've heard good and bad things about JRSC and also vortec. I heard the vortec blows up or something?
Anyways I want a reliable supercharger, or a turbo...whichever is the most reliable...and with my mods (borla exhaust, superchip) i want to push 200hp. What do yall suggest? I have auto tranny as well....might change tho. Who knos.

Tranny would have to be upgraded to handle the power of FI. The most important part of going FI is the tuning. If the tuning is bad, you're gonna blow the motor.
