Default Can i add a supercharger to my Scion Tc 2014?

So i bought my new Scion Tc (2014) and i've been looking into buying some accessories for it. Not so much on making it look bad, but just to add a little style. I realize mine now has 179hp but i'm wondering if i can add a supercharger or turbocharger to make it faster? I'm sort of new to the actual engine mods but i'd appreciate the input. Thanks!

There are a couple of types of superchargers, but all need specifically designed brackets to attach it to a specific engine. If somebody has designed those brackets for your engine, you're in. If not, it will probably cost more then the car is worth to fit it. Turbos can be added to most any engine, because it's not necessary for the turbo to even touch the engine, or even be that close to it. But, turbos take more room & custom bent tubing to get them to fit. Again, if somebody has designed one for your engine, you're in. If not, it will be much less $$$ then the supercharger brackets, but certainly not cheap, to have them made.
