Turbo or supercharger? 2v or 4v?

I've come to a conclusion that I want to turbo a 2v stang.. Wondering if it's worth it? Or should I swap for a 4v and supercharge it? Looking for some good input here b4 I start spending the cash and not be happy with what I got.. Looking for low 12 ET's 400 + rwhp without spending more then $3500-5000

Do you prefer one of the other? And why? And brands?

Re: Turbo or supercharger? 2v or 4v?

turbo is more costly, a supercharger will push the engines limits just as easily. If it was a built motor i might say turbo to get more power out of it, but you dont need to push much more than 400rwhp on the 2v pre 05 motors and a centri supercharger will easily do that (make sure its intercooled)

If u want power on the low end to mid range, superchargers are better, if u want top end power, turbo it. Im not the best person to ask about brands but I hear great things about kenne belle superchargers, I don't know much about turbo brands, but either way, ur going to spend at least 3,000 bucks, but superchargers can go over 10,000 bucks, u get wat u pay 4
