    are you talking about a Z20LET(the turbo in the mk4) or C20LET? (the old cally turbo engine)

    what engine do you have at the minute? will help to say where teh 'charger can go, etc.

    Personally I'd go down the conversion route or get a Dbilas turbo setup. There's loads of options to do, just depends how much you want to spend, as they say anything is possible if you can fund it.

    you can, but.... the fact that your asking on here probably means your not actually capable of doing it yourself...... so... it could get expensive.... but there is no reason why you couldnt run a small centrifulgal supercharger on your motor in stock format, you might get away with 5-6 psi of boost which may give you 150 odd bhp..... a zlet conversion would be a safer option in my opinion. but if you do supercharge it, get some pics and vids up cos i love superchargers.

    well its not a matter of doing it myself as im sure if i put my mind to it and do my research anythings possible but id rather get it set up properly, like the fueling, its gona need some sort of remap which i dont have equipment for so i guess at that point ill get stuck. i think your right the z20let would be a safer option. does anyone have a clue where i can get one??

    stock management may fuel for afew psi but not much maybe 5psi max.

    zlet engine!!!, best bet is to trawl the scrappy and buy the front of the car so you get everything you need.

    an easy way of working out what power from what psi is this

    normal atmospheric preasure is 15psi IIRC

    so your car is in effect running 15 psi just now N/A (if you follow me )

    so your cars power is 100 bhp right

    so to add 5 psi just now would be adding 1/3 of your cars power again

    so approx 33bhp

    i know thats how it works with turbos so i assume its the same with SC's
