    supercharger info

    Need a bit of info on superchargers, I.e understand you can use them on a low presure like a low pressure turbo, i.e no major head work, but what is involved fitting them and is there a company that makes a kit or would I have to say find suitable parts from other motors. any help would be good

    in two minds luke as the 1600 is a over looked engine imo no one bar jinkus as ever gone and seen what it pushes out, its either that or drop the 1600 in the mk3 if it will for or z20 let or c20 let but both are proving the obvious choice, and at the moment just looking at options as it really i pointless selling my car to by a turbo when mine is the same or better spec than a turbo coupe due to the mods and upgrades done, when the main difference is the engine, seems a waste when I would only sell my car for another astra any way. may as well just swap the engine
