Atkins rotary has a supercharger kit they have on thier website, I did not read through it, but you may be able to adapt it to your application.

Nelson had a nice supercharger kit. It is gone now. You can probably piece a kit together, just need to mount it and fuel. I've seen a supercharged TII, it sounded wicked.

A centrifugal supercharger is going to cost you around $3,000.

Kits built around this type of supercharger will add at least another grand, if not two.

The Atkins SC require conversion to carburators, which I find a backwards step in terms of performance.

After adding proper fuel supply mods, you're looking at a "kit" which would cost you around $5,000.

If you can part with your NA, get rid of it and buy a Turbo II.

The dyno graphs I've seen of SC'd NA are not much better than a mildly modded Turbo II. Serious performance SC'd FC NA's are going to end up breaking drivetrains parts, and that can be annoying, if not expensive and time consuming.



I find 99% of the people asking for SC kits for their NA's can't afford to spend the $5k+ for something that makes a little over 200hp at the wheels. Purely from a budget stand point, you're better off getting a Turbo II.
