I've always wondered if there was a supercharger kit out there for the MKII.

All you guys out there that have MKIIs and the air does not work or will never get it going, ever thought of getting rid of that compressor and putting a supercharger in its place?

All you need to do then is to run the air belt from the harmonic balancer to the supercharger for power.
Put the air cleaner under the battery and then run the intake pipes to the supercharger, out to an intercooler and then finaly to the stock airflow meter.

I wonder if this would work?

I'm afraid it's not that simple!

- The air conditioning v-belt won't transfer enough power for a supercharger. Note the pictures of the kit has a toothed belt.

- You can't run pressurised air through the airflow meter; it must go before the supercharger.

- The supercharger pictured is a positive displacement type, which means the throttle body must also be relocated in front of the supercharger.

I reckon the turbo upgrade would be far easier and probably more effective!
