I have seen this option before and now have a reason to use it.
If we can find a bolt on Judson supercharger cheap I might be tempted. (I had one on my 64, 50% more power!)
Maybe I could use it to tow the Barth!

In a car or buggy-turbo, in a bus neither-- use the money to build a good larger (longer stroke) engine with thicker cylinder walls, good cooling both air and oil ( with the major emphasis on cooling). there is no substitute for cubic inches and programing a supercharged engine to run for long periods under heavy load is difficult at best.
I think the refrain is, "No replacement for displacement."
My last van was a 1964 with the 1958 reduction axles and a 40+ hp engine. Interesting discovery, it could climb inclines where the brakes wouldn't hold. Try retreating under those conditions.
I was taught to respect my elders but it is getting harder to find them!
Yep, like my 10.4 liter purring CAT.

I voted for Stock. You need something Reliable, Affordable, Maintainable, Durable -RAMD (US Army Tank Automotive Command acronym) to go get parts for the Hot Rod when it breaks . . . and they all do. Sometimes it is better to Hmmmm along instead of ZOOM ZOOM ZOOM !
