Dare to dream, slim... dare to dream.

Make sure when you're done, you swap a red interior in there so you can own the only red interiored superchared e30 evar!

In all seriousness, good luck with your search. A turbo would probably be a better, easier, cheaper option, but don't let that put you off. If you have a vision, get it done! I just want to see it when your done.

I told him his cheapest option if he really wants to supercharge..

I looked more into that kit and the general concensus is that its mysteriously NLA..

A kit like that would be in $4K to $7K range anyway. Hardly worth it on a car worth less than that (typically). I think Ireland used to have a kit too, as I had found a PDF of the instruction installations once, but I haven't seen it in a while either. They still have a turbo kit, $5K USD and up.

If you want a forced induction, either learn to DIY yourself or pay $$$ to have it done. I'm sure lots of capable shops in TO could do either SC or TC.

ya, thats the problem, ive found multiple sites but they dont sell them anymore!

and honestly, i think too many ppl jump on the TC band wagon, try something different for once and playing with it rather than just doing wats already been done before.
