Supercharger- decision time

Hey guys, It comes down to this. I have saved up and it's time to supercharge the car. I street drive the car on nice days, no track time as of yet. If I do go to the track it will be just for fun, I don't want to get too serious about it. Gets expensive fast.

There are 2 kits that I'm currently considering.
1. Brenspeed 560R roush r2300 system
2. Brenspeed Paxton Novi 220sl kt

There are things that I like about both kits.
If I do this, I plan to keep the car for a long long time.
I thought for a long time that I was going to go with the paxton kit but after talking with Brent @ brenspeed he somewhat swayed me to the roush kit. Better for my application so to speak.
I will not need to upgrade boost in the future, or at least there are no plans for it currently. 450rwhp is enough for a street car IMO. Car is an 05 auto GT with around 45K miles.

I recently put on the plenum cover/ fuel rail/ battery and brake booster covers and dressed up the engine bay so with the roush that would all be wasted money as it won't be reused, and with the paxton I could keep it or at least modify it to fit. I like that the paxton is a little easier on components as it builds boost more slowly, but from what I've heard the roush is a better system all around.
Any thoughts/ experience with this etc. I'm pullin my hair out over this one.
