Turbo or Supercharged

I own a 1997 mustang gt and i was wondering whether i should install a twin or single turbo, or a supercharger, or if i can combine a turbo and a supercharger.

Depends on how much you have what what's your goals. How much power are you wanting to make? If over around 450rwhp, i would def put some forge internals in. Single turbo would be nice and could run low boost on the stock internals. If you want to go twin turbo or compound boost like a SC/turbo combo, then you're going to make some serious power, even on low boost and will def have to have the internals forged. Is your 97 stock? Have you atleast done a PI swap? Just make a list and start with that.

PI swap is putting the heads from a 99-04 mustang GT on your NPI engine. It stands for Performance improvements (PI). In order to do this swap you will also need the PI intake manifold off a 99-04 GT. This upgrade adds about 45-50 HP. If you go with either turbo or supercharger the PI swap will help air flow much better. I personally would go with a supercharger like a kennbell or tork teck.

let's start with the most basic question...How much money do you have to spend?
Once this is answered we can give coherent recommendations.

well i have a part time job and i make roughly $250-300 bi-weekly so im willing to spend whatever its just the time of making it.

and for the PI swap how much is an PI intake manifold cost/ how difficult is it?

sorry thats im so pathetic but this is my first car and i have it in the autoshop in my school in taking an autocourse and im working on it there.

I need all the help I can get, and thank you.

PI heads run you about $250 on ebay and the PI intake manifold is around $200 bucks. check out youtube there are some good videos about the swap.
