    If you do it, you're going to want to use an A-1 unit. Good to 150 hp. But it's 8" across, you're going to have to get creative making it fit. That's the smallest one they make. Also going to be interesting coming up with a drive system.

    And that is just half the battle, bigger injectors will be needed, piggyback computer to control fuel and timing, develop new fuel and timing maps for the computer,very time consuming I might add.
    That ought to get you started

    I believe Smartcar 111 is going to(try to) put a supercharger on his car. Meanwhile I'll stick with my turbos.
