Head over to tuning and tech then click on forced induction, they will answer all the questions you have. Good luck

Hey funny guy...

You actually can run both. You use them as compounds and have a supercharger for low rpms then turbo lights for upper rpms.

To the OP

try and search HPF makes a good turbo kit, but a lot of guys run active autowerks, Ess tuning, VF superchargers.
