Being as you have a new car I wouldn't do either until your warranty expires cuz otherwise it will void your warranty. But if you have the cash handy to pay for a new car if something goes wrong then go for it. Should only run around $5-$7k for your year model to boost it.

Turbo hands down. Also moved you to the boost area section so others can chime in

Turbo=more power but more tinkering. Supercharger=less power but basically bolt on and go.
