yeah n/a was like 180 to 200 depending on year....
S/C would be better for the off the line take off power as you don't need to wait for boost to build as the S/C is supplying boost on demand.
+Wider and flatter power band
+simpler and easier to maintain
-takes power to make power, S/C is a huge parasitic draw on the motor
-clearly obvious your S/C if you want to be a sleeper
-Space can be a little tight depending on what S/C type you go with
Turbos make better peak power for the long haul. ive always seen turbo cars beat out S/C in trap speeds even if it looses.
+Better power when boost builds
+better fuel mileage
+Less stressfull on the engine, there IS ZERO parasitic draw on the engine
+Makes more power then a similar boost level from S/C
-more maintenance needed
-may not be as ring land freindly
-trickier to tune
Cost of both setups is debatable, but there are more options with turbo setup. there is a hand full of S/C kits. there are a handful of T/C kits too, but you have more turbo sizes available and better routing options
