turbo vs supercharger 4.0 style

So yeah I've been debating between the two lately they both have there pros and cons but I wanted to get everyone else's opinions. if you have one tell me why you think yours is better then the other. If you don't have one but you want to add one tell me which and why. If you think its a stupid idea and think na is the best tell me why. either way give me which one you want or have and why its better then the rest. make model and reasons let's see who comes out on top.

In my opinion, a super charger would be a good set up for a wheeler. There is no turbo lag, but a small turbo wouldn't lag much. It would fit well in place of the ac compressor. My brother has an extra Eaton m90 for a 3.8 super coupe and an intercooler. It fits well in the engine bay and the intercooler would be good on top of the engine. Relocate the battery to the drivers side and the intake on the passenger side. I also feel the supercharger would be a bit better in terms of taking damage from dirt getting sucked in.

Also, a super charger wouldn't require major changes to the exhaust and would be a simpler set up with less piping.

If I had the money and time, that super charger would be on my 4.0

with a m90, is that the same that the had supercharged Bonneville, and grand prix had? if it is then you could always have it in place of the power steering pump... but steering would suck after that

I know it was in the Thunderbird super coupe and the grand Prix. Idk about the Bonneville
But I wouldn't want it in place of the power steering. I enjoy that
