Hey nashy not on this forum. Most people on this forum haven't a clue about that sort of thing. Don't you know boost devalues this precious car and the gods at honda may get angry? Don't forget if you boost it it will blow up and kill little children when it does. Just ask the people on here they will confirm what I am saying. Basically what I am telling you is tell them to suck your huge black dong, you will do what you want with your money and they should all f off.

Now that I am done explaining the forum to you I have a few questions for you. Your budget of 10-12 does this include the car too? If it does your goal will most likely be out of reach. So if you do have 12k to blow you can do some pretty nice stuff. High power is subjective what is that to you? I would imagine you could get around 450 reliable whp. I am sure you could get wayyyyy more power out of it but with more power reliability goes down. It is really all in the tune with these motors they're built strong so a competent tuner is what you need. Getting good power isnt the issue its not breaking the rear that is. Anyway I have been out of it for about 2 years so I cant really help you with what the hot kit is right now but I would check s2ki if I were you.

I do believe that the supercharger route is more reliable from what I'm told. Good luck!

First off learn to drive the car in stock form, you may find the modifications unnecessary. Plus if you cannot handle the car in stock form, a turbo/supercharger is just going to accentuate the problem at a faster pace. There are other power mods. to consider, flashpro, which reflashes the ECU so that you have a lower rpm point of VTEC engagement. I would choose a supercharger over a turbo for a car that is easily e-tuned and reliable.
If what you really want is a car that is 0-60 friendly, you'd be better off with some Detroit pig iron.

^^^what he said^^^

The S2 is a great platform in theory since it is small, light, and rear drive but the present value and projected resale value of the car make it better suited for the pampered life. But if you must boost, spend some time behind the wheel first since it is a whole other world compared to your celica. Superchargers produce plenty of power and seem to keep the car more reliable but turbo can be cheaper initially.
