Mein Auto:
your engine is not designed for a turbo. The compression is too high. With a turbo in it, surely you will burn a hole in the cylinder head. Porsches did the right thing, they have a variable vane turbo charger, which reduces lag on acceleration, and gives full power when you floor the throttle. Don't know too much about superchargers. You want more power on demand than your Z06? You probably need a dedicated weekend car instead. Why not work it this way? Z06 for daily use, and a new Viper for the weekend.
