Well turbos make more power and I've heard are a bit cheaper, probably a bit better on gas since you're not in boost all the time, which is good for a DD. But you could also go centrifugal super charger and have to build boost as well, And you get 2 cool sounds with a turbo instead if 1.

You got part of that right. To set up both a supercharger and turbocharger correctly and safely the tubo will be much more expensive.

I'm not too sure about the 3v but I believe it's around 450-500 when you will want to start thinking about a forged rotating assembly.
