really?,
turbos are known for getting pretty hot under the bonnet.
and I've been doing a little research and it seems to me that both have high chances of royally screwing up my engine..
Is the risk worth the reward?

You want to spend 5k+, to do it right?

If not then it isn't worth it... a lot has to go into it.

yeah. [suicide]
not really up for that right now.
if i had 5k+ to blow I'd go get an mk1...
i'll just stick with suspension, exhaust, and intake for now.

supercharger = sexy sound

turbo= best efficiency

neither will be reliable unless you keep it at low boost.

I would go turbo, head spacer, low boost, larger injectors, tune? so many boosted vr's out there I'm sure there is a good one

wait.. this is a 24 valve obd2..

I would look on vortex at the technical forum for forced induction to see what you would be getting into.

I'm sure you could run 6psi on stock motor with a tune and injectors, more than that I think would need head spacer.
