Hummm...

Maybe in the spring. I'd probably go turbo though, if anything else because it's been done so many times before flawlessly.

i think belt driven would be the way to go,it would fit nicely where the power steering pump is..and if you take the a/c pump off,you allready have twin belts comin off the crank...

It looks like a turbo, but it is a centrifugal supercharger. You can tell because A. Belt driven. B. No turbine

I remember when the car that supercharger kit came out of was on eBay. It was quite awhile ago now.. but I do remember how horrible of a setup it looked installed. Particularly that tube. It ran up against the firewall, over and around the engine on both sides.

Superchargers on m20's are just nothing compared to the power that can be had with turbo. Superchargers are also whinny and annoying.

I would have to agree with Jordan in that a turbo is a much more efficent power increase if you can handle the lag time. A belt drive super charger uses engine power to turn where a "turbo" or exhaust driven supercharger uses the waste of the engine to add "free" power.
Also I would recomend a water top air intercooler due to the aerodynamic disadvantages of a air-to-air, and they are easy to use along with your exisiting radiator fan.

Here is a nice supercharger kit that I was thinking about getting...but its a little pricey. Fits right in the spot of the A/C compressor (my a/c dosn't work anyway)...I want a supercharger over a turbo because I can't afford to wait for the turbo lag...plus I don't have to worry about custom exhaust manifolds.

For the price of that kit, you can buy and swap in a S50... and have more power from the stock S50 then the supercharged m20.
