Sc or tc?

Ok well I'm running a 07 Chevy cobalt LT 2.2L with a badmab header, ZZP DP, Cat back and k&n air intake . My car only has 48000-49000. So were I'm getting at is witch is better? Tc or sc? I want pros and cons on both items don't leave any thing out and were to start or either or if I'm going to do this since I can't buy the whole kit at once since it runs like 1000-4000 for either or. Member I also don't wanna mess my engine up neither since I have at least a good 10-20 years left in this car ..

If you want long life out of your engine, boosting it is not the way to go. If you slapped a tiny turbo on it, however, you would obviously see more power out of it and better fuel efficiency, but you would need to fill up with premium every time. There are tons of threads and outside resources that argue both sides of forced induction, its all personal preference.

So you think I should leave the engine the way it is with just the cai and full exhaust?
