Planed GTS setup suggestions needed!

Ok soo i have a 2000 Celica GTS 188k miles with Short Ram cold air and GReddy installed headers back this is how i bought the car. Im looking for a solid power boost mostly for fun and summer driving. I i don't want to turbo for a couple reasons #1 cost more after the boost ctrl and timer and all that #2 "they produce a dramatic rise in air pressure, resulting in instantaneous large horsepower increases""due to the very rapid increase in power, is the effect on the transmission components, all turbo's wear out clutches and gearboxes more quickly" #3 they get a little tricky to control because there are soo many variables #4 i have heard installing a turbo on a celica can be a painful job =P anyways

Current Plan:
1 x Fidanza Flywheel
1 x MWR ARP Bolt Set Flywheel
4 x NGK BKR7EIX Iridium Spark Plug
1 x Toyota/TRD 170F Thermostat
1 x ACT Clutch HDSS
1 x MWR Toyota LSD Install Kit
1 x TRD/Toyota Helical LSD
1 x Energy Susp Bushing Kit Engine Mount Inserts
1 x Energy Susp Bushing Kit Complete Suspension
1 x GReddy Supercharger kit
1 x MWR Underdrive Pulley Water Pump
1 x MWR Underdrive Pulley Alternator All
1 x MWR Belt - Celica GTS w 2 MWR Pulleys, GReddy SC
1 x Toyota 2ZZ-GE Engine - Used 5-40k miles
Total cost $8,500
ending with about 200-225whp (guesstament)
trying to keep it under $10k

now another thought i was having was possibly setting up a centrifugal supercharger on it. what attracts me to the centrifugal is that i wont have much power under 3k rpm soo daily driving might conserve fuel in the summer? and another thing is when im actually beating on it im around 3-7k rpm and those high rpm ranged a centrifugal will work GREAT but i have heard superchargers tend to trail off after 3k rpm soo i don't know help me out guys =)
