Default 2 choices... need Advice please

So i want to stay between 300-340 hp on my 95 gt as its a daily driver and my son LOVES to ride with the top down... No i narrowed it down to 2 options on achieving that goal...

1. A full top end kit(trick flow most likely)
2. Single Turbo set up via on3 performance (http://www.on3performance.com/mustangsn5.html)

Now the turbo option seems a much easier route due to the minor amt of work that has to be done to the motor, although its a little more exp then the top end kits Ive seen running about 2k for COMPLETE KIT...

The top end kit seems like a much more natural and safer way to achieve it since you cant over boost a non boosted set up.. And there a little cheaper as well i just don't have the exp to install either alone so im wondering if one is cheaper to install.

ALOT of people on here that ive seen have loads of exp on these cars so id really like to hear from you guys so that i can gather as much feed back as possible and make the best decision instead of just a partially educated guess.

Thanks Guys

You'll make more power with the turbo. On3 has so far been a proven turbo seller with a good rep. The Trickflow kit will net you 270-300rwhp. Install would probably be a bit harder doing the H/C/I, but both will be a bit tedious. Just make sure your motor is ready for boost...ie in tip top shape with under 100,000 miles.

The motor is literally new, very low miles.. Im 100 percent sure it can handle the turbo and if its give more hp and be easier to install thats my best bet.. Really glad to hear good stuff about the turbo company... thanks for the advice its appreciated
