Definitely turbochargers...
The benefit of a turbo is that it compresses a greater mass of intake air into the combustion chamber, thereby resulting in increased efficiency. In contrast to turbochargers, superchargers are not powered by exhaust gases but driven by the engine mechanically.
Thus, a turbocharger does not place a direct mechanical load on the engine and it is more efficient as it uses kinetic energy of the exhaust gas to drive the compressor.
