Either one will get you there (1500HP) on Alky and the cubic inches you have. Do a search on this site for tons of discussion on this topic turbo vs blower.

I would go with a turbo primarily for the fact that it traditionall adds more torque higher in the RPM range and you will definitely not need it on the low end.
