65mm TB = Larger TB over stock 52mm. Better throttle response and about 1-2WHP.

Turbo = Uses exhaust to drive turbine. Small time lag before it kicks in.

Supercharger = Moderate HP gains. Belt driven. Immediate response - no lag.

Check out this Supercharger vs. Turbo article.

if you want turbo, but don't want the lag, you could always twin-charge the car.

If you don't know what twin-charging is, it's basically a turbo-and-supercharged engine! You get the immense torque gains right from 1,000RPM (200 lbs-ft torque at 1,200 RPM, eg.) This is amazing stuff. Currently Turbo Magazine is twin-charging their project MR-2.

Depending on the brand, type and HP your gonna get from a Turbo, the additional mods to your stock engine will be different.
The best thing to do is talk to a turbo vendor and ask what they recommended you do to your stock engine to accommodate their turbo.
You might also search this forum and see if this has already been discussed.
Good luck on your venture...

K & N air filter. You can get this from O'reillys, Wal-Mart, or anywhere.
