supercharger, procharger-because of the high compression svts have the sc would be better all around because of how the power curve works..the turbo would drop off at a certain rpm and the sc just keeps goin until you shift. www.c-f-m.com

foku said it pretty good, there are some who think turbos are better all around...im not one of them. Plus turbos are gonna cost you up the a$$ and i dont know how reliable they are since there arent a large amount of people that have done it.
