Charger - extra pully for charger to run of - intercooler - pipework for intercooler + pipework for inlet & outlet of charger - FCD (stops the fuel cut) - bypass for the charger or might be able to use BOV - charger belt - main piece is the charger cradle or brakets for the charger - carnt think of anything else atm but if i have missed something someone will let you know.

Im wanting to supercharge as well, although I would like to possibly do a rotrex build. What would be all the components that I would need from starting from scratch, and also estimated, how much would it cost total? Any ideas?

Ok, thanks for the info. Is there better alternatives out there? I found some turbo kits in the usa, but they do not come with documentation that certifies the parts. I figured since theydont have documentation, it'd be better to build one myself. Costs are also an issue as well.

There arent any "cheap" ways of doing it unless youre able to do fabricating and everything else yourself. Even then it will cost more than you think. In another couple of threads today ive posted a link to a kit that a guy has for sale for £1800, thats if he still has it.
