Icon13 What's better: a turbo or supercharger?

I was wondering what choice would be better for my 2001 Prelude, a turbo or supercharger? Which gives the best power (the fastest response time), best cost effectiveness, gas mileage increase? and is least expensive/problemsome to operate? My car has about 45,000 miles on it and i would probably get rods, lower compression pistons, and a new valvetrain(cams, springs, retainers, valves). What would be the best choice for these since i know Honda didn't use iron sleeves for the cylinder walls. I heard Mahle Gold Series forged pistons are a option in which no resleeving is needed? Would these be good or are they not all they're cracked up to be?

Thanks

there is no "better" one; they both have their pro's and cons. it comes down to what you wanna do and what your willing to sacrafice.
decide what you wanna do first, do some research, then get back to us.
