turbo and supercharging are combined together on deiesl motor more that on gas motors.

i am new to teh 4.0 motor but i would say that going with the turbo would be better but prolly cost more in the end with all the plumbing involved.

neat idea tho.

v8 swap would be the best way to get more power, but if you're set on a forced air set up, i'd go with a supercharger on the 4.0. it has enough torque already that having a belt driven charger isn't gonna matter and you aren't gonna have to deal with turbo lag, or intercoolers, or all that extra piping.
I'ma come at your like a spider monkey!

size the turbo right and there wont be any lag. but i see your point about that supercharger and would concur.

the supercharger is as said, most easier to install.
