Questions to buy an AA S/C or HPF Turbo

I have a 01 E46 M3 Laguna Seca Blue. I was wondering which would be better to put in an AA S/C or a HPF turbo. Im looking for some power and no problems with it because its my daily driver..

Thanks.

theres no such thing as adding power and it to stay just as reliable as stock.

anytime you add more power than its designed for, reliability goes out the door.

just put this inot consideration. Installation / repair to your HPF turbo has to be done at their location, in oregon.

Yes and no.
S/C can be as reliable as stock.
The hassle part is, oil change must be done no more than every 3,000 miles.

Yes, customer has to pay for shipping to Oregon for installation.

Honestly? I wouldn't do it.
Unless you can pump 100 octane every day.

I never knew HPF certifies any other shops other than their own facility.
Neither did I ever heard Chris mentioned that.
