Is the mileage really that big of a problem? Im just thinking it would be a lot cheaper to supercharge my car vs buying the turbo balt because if I buy the SS I probably wont have any money for mods for a long time.

It's not if it's in good condition, just keep in mind it's not nearly the same potential. Do a compression and leak down test on your motor, or have it done by a shop.

Will do come spring time most likely. I mean the engine runs strong and theres not a drop of oil in my engine bay Im not really worried about the engine much but the tranny is my main focus.

That should be okay with the power, talk to Corry Brown on Facebook since he's not on here much anymore, has a base model that was supercharged and is now working on turbo.

A Supercharged 2.2L with a decent pulley (~2.9 or smaller), full exhaust and a good tune will easily keep up with a stock LNF. I hung with one when I was still running the stock 2.2L manifold, downpipe and exhaust.

Dang. I'll be running a 3.1", dual pass, 60#, ZZP midlength (1.75" primaries, 200 cell) a GMPP catback and a Trifecta tune. ZZP estimates 9-12psi. 240whp I think would be the most optimistic.

Should also see less parasitic loss due to a manual transmission and a decent clutch.

Yes. You'll probably be fine - though 60s is way overkill for a 3.1" pulley...

I made right around 220whp with an SS/TC 2.5" exhaust, but still with the stock manifold and downpipe. Right around 14-15psi.

I dynoed it again after I got the header/downpipe, but the converter wouldn't stay locked, so I got a lower figure.
