supercharger, turbo, or cams?

I have a 07 honda civic si and wanted to buy some kind of power adder for it after the holidays. I'll love to supercharge it, but cams will be cheaper plus im in Mississippi and we dont have crap here that does installations and tuning for the charger. If anyone know a good place to purchase a charger or turbo kit, installation, and tuning near, let me know. Only have cold air intake now.

I vote turbo. You can make a petty cheap kit if you look around.

and tossing the disposable income at the 10R and making it wicked badazz.

I would have to say a turbo/supercharger over the cams/headwork. Its easier to keep on improving your setup if you go with a forced air system.
