: I currently have a 96 1.9L Z3 that I have loved since the day I bought it. Recently, I have been wanting more power and was about to make the jump to the M Roadster. Now, after reading the board I wonder whether the power I am looking for might easily be found in a supercharger. In the humble opinion of the board which is the better way to go??

I have a 97 1.9 and I am planing having a Atlanta downing suppercharger installed on mine.
I'v heard some good things about it. It should increase HP by 50%.They say dino up to 200 to 215 hp.Without any other mods.I already have a supersprint catback on my 1.9. It is emportant to remember that a suppercharger pumps in alot of air
and if you don't have a free flowing exhaust system. It wood be like jogging with a straw in your mouth. It cost about $3,295. that is a small price to pay. When you consider the bath you would
take on selling or trading it in. And then the 40+
thousand for MZ3.And you would still mantain the great handling that our 1.9s are noted for.
