    guess it depends if you want something proven. the raptor. if you want something a little bit different to try, go turbo.
    This is good site to watch.I found it informative as I have been researching a lot lately on such matters such as you talk about.

    It looks sexy but take care, I see nothing there about tuning which is the absolute life line of the motor, that rising rate reg will do nothing and kit will be better off without it.

    Factor in some decent injectors and maybe even a MAP based tune, say around $400 for injectors, $220 for a pump (you are prolly looking to push a bit of boost with this), and $1200 for a tune by someone with the skills.

    Turbo kits are not so bad if you are a good spanner man and like fixing broken stuff, they are very hard on transmissions etc but the power can be high. Prolly totally avoid if you have a manual GETRAG, the autos can be modded to take it. Also one stuff up with fuelling and its instant goodbye to engine, that is same with SC too but a proven package gets rid of the rot there.

    Not so long ago a Street Comms DVD had a turbo install featured (can't remember name right this moment), see if you can get hands on that, will give you a good idea of what is involved. A lot of external engine parts were removed before fitting begins, even I was suprised how much stuff had to be altered.

    Anyhow check it out, I am biased to a degree but driving and enjoying your car ASAP is way better than working on the thing
