As much as I like MS, it sounds like you don't really care about big horsepower or plan on spending much. You could do with a simple greddy kit at 5-6 PSI and AFPR, or cheap used supercharger probably. If you go with the greddy kit you can always add supporting mods later (including MS) up to about 250 rwhp. Anything over that though and your swapping turbos.

I was never going over 150.

Now I'm honestly thinking about blowing the $400 to have gpop work my 15g into a 19t, and thus have the first Greddy to roll a 300. Longshot I know.

No offense, but you won't stop at 200. Sorry... Still if you really believe that, then purchase a GT2554R turbo, a greddy, or use a supercharger.
