Planning Long Term Mods w/ Forced Induction

I've finally ordered my first mod, a Steeda short throw. Spending money on the car is no problem, I just can't do it all at once. I want to get a supercharger or turbo somewhere down the line with forged internals and a Ford racing head. However I don't know whether or not to get low or high compression pistons, how aggressive of cams, etc to go with the NA build before I do the forced induction job. I do plan on getting exhaust, intake, tires, and a sport chip sometime soon. After that I was planning on getting the ford racing head, cams, cam gears, throttle body, and internals. I know its going to be expensive but after all that I'd be buying most likely the Jackson Racing supercharger. I think the Vortech kit with aftercooler is extremely overpriced. Any reccomendations on what compression ratio and cam specifications I should shoot for to keep NA power before a supercharger?
