What real gains from supercharger?

FYI: Before anyone calls me out for buying a slow car to begin with I did buy this car(XB) after seeing it at the L.A. auto show in 03 and TOYOTA said they were 100% for sure going to offer a turbo or supercharger for it within 1 year...Well that never happened

I don't dare drag race a Prius..Id get Seriouslly they bolt away much quicker. Oh well..

It seems alot of people have used the bolt on supercharger kits..but In 10 years I don't recall anyone ever saying..oh now my car is faster than a Honda civic or a Prius or the wifes 220 Honda h.p. mini van. Ive asked before but every response on Scion forums has been along the lines of.."oh Dude" I don't race it its for looks

Seriously..To any gar head worth his salt....whats the point of installing a supercharger or Turbo..if you never have a little fun with those whom have them..what are your thoughts..what can our incredibly whimpy cars run with once a supercharger is installed? Stock..I know..virtually every car built is faster..Thats no exaggeration either..but its getting a little tiring.
Does a supercharger help at all? NO TURBOS...too much work to install & removal and internal mods required..and way too much heat where I live for a daily driver.

The XB is just too cool of a looker and functional to let go.. its a keeper nothing like it before or since, exept a MINI but there 30k. Gotta admit the 1.5 liter in this car is hands down the most reliable, bulletproof,abuse friendly car Ive ever owned..
