Let's get this back on topic with superchargers and turbo setups.

The poster didn't come here to get schooled on insurance.

Basically what u are trying to do is doable, just need parts, money and a lot of trial and error time. Gonna need another car to drive while you are getting all this work done.

True.

However I think you should spend time getting to know your current engine and doing what improvements you can to it. Start slow. Don't rush it.

Jumping into a supercharged/turbocharged setup with little to no knowledge doesn't happen. You've got a supercharged car, learn how it works in and out, how the BCA/BCS works, how the engine management behaves, etc, learn how to tune said engine management.

Then I would start trying to learn turbo engines the same way.

Eventually after you master both, build a motor with them both. A twin charged car will need a hell of a cooling system, and definitely oil system upgrades.
