d-power stage 3 vs. Tom's Turbo Kit

I thought that I could trade in my 13 sec. supercharged GTX for ST and not mod it. Well, it was tolerable for the first 3 weeks and the time has come. Based on reliability, HP/Torque gains, and price point, which is the better buy? You guys all have way more focus experience and expertise than I.....so tell me what to go broke on: Cosworth stage 3 N/A or one of Tom's world famous turbo kits.

Also, with the Cosworth, does it have such a high compresion ratio that adding any forced induction down the line is unrealistic?

Tom has no kit so far for the new foci. He only has Zetec turbo kits (i.e. SVT, standard foci, and ZX2) I believe he is working on for the 2.3 duratech turbo kit.

I would go with Cosworth, or wait untill Tom makes the kit
