supercharging/turbo 5.0 tbird

I recently bought a 1991 LX 5.0 and was wanting opinions on how to go about supercharging or putting a turbo on it.

who has done this already that can help me out.

I think that there have only been a couple or so turbocharged 302 powered Thunderbirds/Cougars. There is not a lot of room to work with in these cars, and will require you to do some custom work. Supercharging is an easier route...and I believe that most supercharged 302s here are using centrifugal blowers i.e. Vortech/Paxton/etc....
