    hey im going to ask a really silly question

    basically i was thinking of supercharging my E46 328i on the cheap, so would it be possible to mount 2 bmw mini cooper chargers under the bonnet instead of one larger blower? if what are the pro`s and con`s of using 2 smaller blowers?

    i hope this makes sence

    i have thought about this before,, and i asked the question, but only for 1!, was told they were designed for a 4 pot and that power would be low,,, now to me if its cheap then any charger will fit on if some mounts are fabricated, and if it gets 30=40 bhp for under 1k then will will not get that anywhere else with any other mod for cheap!
    i can't see why you couldn't do it? but i would only have 1. alot easier.

    The mini type would be pretty awkward to mount.
