is there even a supercharger for the ga16de not a turbo the actual supercharger?
I have never heard of or seen a pre-fabricated kit for a GA out there. All I've seen are turbos. There was one guy I heard of that got a supercharger and built his own. (He did it wrong though and blew up all sorts of stuff in his engine.) Your best bet is to either go with a turbo or n2o.

Whatever you do... don't buy an 'electric' supercharger. They are a waste of money. I tried it. Pure waste.

please look in the FORCED INDUCTION section where there is a sticky listing all turbo/sc kits available for the model cars listed.

for future reference, threads pertaining to turbo/supercharger/nitrous oxide belong in that forum and not here.

That link didn't work. It just took me to the search page. Maybe a subtle hint....

As a side note, do a search for superchargers or 'sc' or something and you'll find all sorts of fun stuff. The guy that did the one that blew up his engine had a rather entertaining thread, as well as my thread regarding the electric one. (I'm not exactly proud of it, but it is kind of funny.)

Don't feel too bad. I made the same mistake in getting one of those electric ones. hooked it up and saw not difference. Then felt really stupid for believing such a thing. live and learn.

you're gonna waste $5k to supercharge the GA?

what a waste.

$5k on a turbo kit will far outweigh the benefits of a supercharger kit.

oh and we've discussed it before.

btw, just because your friend is a mechanic doesn't mean he knows all there is to know about forced induction or how to install that stuff...... ;) beware.

Your a mechanic for spoon that can build one hell of a motor? Well it should be common knowledge that the compression ratio in the VE is not well suited for boost.

I think the compression is the least of your worries with the SR20VE. do you know anything about the engine to begin with?
