And of course, none of that has anything to do with the original post, as this thread veers further and further off topic, making suggestions of what to use, rather than answering the very general questions about the differences between superchargers and turbochargers, and why some people or certain types of builds, use certain configurations of them.

I run a 671 blower on my 68 Camaro, I run 11lbs of boost and can run 15 easily just by flipping my pulleys, I also run a 50/50 fuel half gas and half alcohol. The reason for the alcohol is it helps with cooling and gives you more power, the more boost the more heat you get. The main problem with more boost is blown head gaskets and broken pistons (been there done that) I have been building blowers since 1983, come of off Detroit diesel engines and my current one is on a 327 with 800 hp. The biggest was a 455 Pontiac with a 1271 and 1500hp and runs straight alcohol and it is in a boat.
If you are going to run over 15 lbs of boost you should have your block and heads o-ringed, it is a lot safer for higher boosts. Good pistons are a must, I run Keith Black pistons and have a custom made set of Tick Flow aluminum heads. I don't have mine o-ringed yet, but they will be.
As far as turbos go they are great when set up right, but I don't like the lag and the extra heat. But turbos can have particals pass through them that would destroy a blower.Ford has a better idea! Drive a GM!
