the superchargers easier to do since theres one that came factory on this gen 3.8,
but turbos have been done before.
id go with a SC tho

the thing is though i know people have done turbos before but that is what i am leaning towards mainly for 1 cuz i love the sound of it haha i know that sounds childish but it just gives me chills down my spine. and also i know all in all a turbo may cost more but it is so worth it in my eyes but idk a website that carries a turbo for my car

also you need to know what your doing, even after you install it because there will be troubleshooting to be done
