1994 2.3L and wants power!

i drive a 2.3L 1994 Mazda b2300 and I am really wanting to get some more outta my engine then just 90 hp lol so I was looking into super charger, turbo chargers, or col air intake but cant find nothing. My plans are to get a cowl hood and install a super charger. I curently am driving with 188K miles is it even worth my time n money or shoudl i just trash the whole project and do a engine swap. Maybe i should even begin looking for a new truck

if i end up picking a 2.3 truck, i'll be getting the entire turbo setup off this turbo coupe i know of.. it would be sweet then with that on it.. you can get decent power out of those things when done right

not a whole lot cuz the stock inards wont take as much boost, ive been told that u can only do like 8-10 lbs b4 everything starts to fail, and i belive if i remember correctly, someone told me its like 5-7 hp per 1lb of boost, but i could be wrong
