Stumped. What should I do?

Heres the deal:

Ive got a 2005 LS Auto and I'm sick of not having 5 speed.
I've been having 5 speed withdraws like crazy lately! lol
Ive got like 2 years of payments left on it.
I would like to lower my balt ive got now, but, I dont wanna waste the money if it would be better to trade in.


Should I:

A) Go ahead and get lowering springs and wait another however long til i pay off the car, then get an SS
B) Save the money for lowering and trade in for a 5 speed Cobalt SS of some sort?

Im not sure exactly how payments would transfer over or whatever.
Help!

when I had my LS and test drove the SC, that was all I needed. Night and day difference! I do miss my LS though for some reason. I well say if you do not owe more than what they well give ya, than you could make out decent. I went negative when I traded, meaning I had to carry over some to the SC, which raised payments(not by much thanks to very low apr) and added like 4k to the total cost of the SC. They give me what I paided for the LS when it was new but I went into negative trading in for the LS before so I technically I am still paying some for a car I had before the LS.

Hmm alright.

So tell me, if you can, whats the difference between SC[supercharged] and TC[turbocharged]?

I'm still not clear on that.
