I say you get a turbo, best way to go they aren't to bad priced for the zetec (as fr as I've seen almost 1000 dollars les than the duratec ones so I'm sure its thesame for the svt) , but suprchargr come up at insanely good deal, and I would probably go that route as a startin out kinda thing if the d20's were able to use 'em, but I can't so I'm buying a turbo and personallyi think you should go turbo.

I have the jackson racing supercharger on my svt and it sees 90+ miles daily. Id say its the best route if you dont want to break the bank, keep it very streetable, and not have to do many supporting mods. I'm very happy with the 215whp it put down on the dyno.

I have been eye balling a Procharger kit, for myself. Centrifugal blowers can make more than enough power to grenade the stock block and their power bands usually kick in quicker than a turbo. i traditionally hate Procharger kits but on this car it would be kick ass. However, if your looking to go with a built motor you should consider a turbo, they can make more overall power, but like i said both are more than capable of making more power than your stock block can handle.

True. I personally prefer the procharger as far as superchargers go, but fast, cheap, reliable you can only have 2 and i picked cheap and reliable and well in my opinion the jrsc is fast enough for my dd
