The famous (Infamous?) Dinan Turbo M5 formerly owned by a UUCer sold last week to an //M car lover. It has the Dinan 3.88L stroker motor with a custom turbo and air/air intercooler for a grand total of 550HP. Dinan found the chassis couldn't take 550HP, so it was de-tuned to 475HP.

There is another Dinan Turbo M5 in the south. It does not have the 3.88L engine but it does have the Dinan turbo and 475HP.

The Dinan Turbo M5 kit is no longer available, and they probably won't even make one for you if asked.

There is a custom Supercharged M5 on the internet, too. I'd estimate it makes around 350-400HP on stock internals.

So it can be done. A centrifugal blower is a helluva lot easier to do than a turbo.
