there has been a lot of threads on this already i would suggest you do a search. All in all it depends on how much money you want to spend, and which kits you are looking at.

If it was me, I would get a super charger. They are allot easier to install and you dont have wait for the turbo to wind up in order to get power. However, turbos are more effecient, because they dont run off the engine like a super charger and probably have a little more hp. But there a bitch to install.

not only is taking out your airbag system a ridiculous thing to do, but it's also illegal and isn't going to net you $2K.

airbags

Forced induction will be useless when you smack your face right into the steering wheel bro. Go for the Roush!
