First point, your car hasn't got carbs mate ;)

Fit a 52mm TB if yours hasn't got one to start with. A supercharger is a massive undertaking on the K-Series. I'm sure that the conversion is around the £3,500 mark, and I know Mynheer's 1.4 K Supercharged used to need an engine rebuild every 10-12k. But if that's not gonna put you off, Eaton are a very good make.

Spoke to Andy and Chris Mynheer about the eaton S/charger a while ago and they don't do it anymore!

Got told they just want to do kits and custom work cos thats where the big bucks are!

Hello, I'm new to tuning and searching for parts, so would you kindly tell me the sites I should be searching in?
