it will do nothing and DO NOT buy one of those cheap ebay electronic superchargers. they dont work and actually restrict your air flow and if one of those fan blades break they can damage your internals

ive seen that episode,, those clowns are funny as hell,,,, was recently thinking along similar lines, for 1.8 gasser .. just for fun ...

looking around Toyota do the MR 2 that's supercharged, and also a people mover with a supercharger in it.. both around 2 liter. be a lot easier to adapt , and would work to a similar capacity if percentage decrease was worked out (engine size from what came from to what it was going on )

also id considered a diesel turbo .. but got stuck on how much boost to run at given the diesels higher comp ratio.. - more research
