Default supercharger or turbo

I'm curious about the power difference/cost ratio between twin turbos and a supercharger.I saw a video on youtube of a guy claiming to have twin turbos but never opened the hood or showed under the car so I don't know.what would be easier to install,and if twin turbos is cheaper would it generate the same power as the supercharger?

Its all going to depend on the kit you get. Turbos generally can give more performance for the money. But you can only go so far with the stock motor. I prefer the instant boost of a roots type blower. Centrifical superchargers are nice too, and there are alot of kits out there with alot of different options. Most kits will set you back between $5,500 - $7,500 for a basic kit on a stock motor, you will want to limit your boost to between 5-8 lbs on stock motors.

I bought them right through my local Dodge dealer, I think I have the PN's at home if you need them. You will need the right and left strut and 2 screw in ball studs.

Yea If you could get those part numbers to me that would be great. I have found them in a complete kit at moparsupercenter.com for $54.22.
If they're the same or cheaper from the dealer I'll just pick them up there.
Thanks

Here are the part numbers
QTY 1 68035556AA strut rod
QTY 1 68035557AA strut rod
QTY 2 6507889AA ball studs
I do not know how much they run because I had them thrown in when I bought the car.
