: Can take forced induction just fine. Check MechTech web site. They sell a 50 state legal kit for the engine. There is a gentleman who post here regularly that has the setup. I want to say he selling it due to a ///M5 purchase(?)

: : I know it's probably a stupid question, but I was just curious and wanted to get everyone's reaction. Could an M20 with 150,000 take a super charger or maybe Nitrous instead. I know German cars are over-engineered and tough as nails, but is this like asking Grandma to compete in the X-games? Just wanted some advice. Maybe you could tell me how to check if she'd make it through (Compression test?) Or how to beef up the engine to take the stystem. Thanks in advance.
