Default Turbo or supercharger?

Hi Guys, sometime in the near future im thinking of beefing up my B16a2 engine in my civic vti and was hoping i could get some suggestions?
I was thinking about fitting a turbo but then thought whats the point when the v-tech has the power up the top end so what about a supercharger? has it been done before?
or should i just go simple and chip it? are there any alternatives?
and do you know anyone that specialises in honda's?
cheers guys

P.S. i'm in the uk

p.s.s. i would show you some pictures but all my pictures are bigger that 400kb

IT IS VTEC!!!!AHHHHHHHH!!!!NOT VTECH!!!!!!!!! [sm=icon_beat.gif]

Of course it's been done before.
Vtec is no reason not to go turbo or supercharger. Sure the vtec helps at higher rpm's, but it doesn't make nearly as much power as forced induction.

You could do both...

There's tons of shops online that specialize in honda's. Just search online for honda performance parts and you'll find tons of stuff. And then of course there is your Honda dealership...

i dunno about that. look at the horsepower ratings of a lot of turbo cars compared to DOHC VTECs in relation to displacement.
I'd say that it doesnt make as much power as an AFTERMARKET turbo though. but not just a turbo in general.

If you really think its vtech then I dont really think you're ready for forced induction
