    There are no turbos that will just fit on a 318is, or any non turbo car for that matter, but any turbo can be made to fit with the right parts. You will need everything custom; exhaust manifold, inlet piping, oil feed & return, thats just the basics to make it fit!

    Edit: Sorry, just realised you're talking about superchargers not turbochargers, but the same rules apply (excluding exhaust manifold).

    the mini cooper s/c is not big enough for the 318i, ie it does not supply enough air.

    you need something bigger. eaton mp62 or 90

    Don supercharg 1.8, start with a swap!If you Supercharg 1.8, get around 1.8 to 200bhp, but with a 2.5/2.8 swap 200bhp will be the starting point.What is the cost of swap uk for a job? Except for the engine and other parts, I made a swap for same friends on a 150-200GBP

    Better ? Any engine will potentially supercharge, the bigger capacities will produce bigger hp figures.

    I thought you was asking about the 1.8/9 ?

    I currently get 210bhp , I am currently making a few mods and should then get around 230bhp

    remember the 4 cylinder is much lighter than the 6 cylinder and handles better

    you can get the Eaton compressor maps here:

    http://www.rbracing-rsr.com/turbotech.html#eaton

    if you read this link it'll also explain how to read compressor maps and understand specs:

    http://www.rbracing-rsr.com/turbotech.html

    However, rule of thumb is that it takes around 150 cfm per 100 bhp... The real question is what pressure ratio or boost in psi is this airflow possible with your engine. You need to start thinking airflow and not "boost"

    the above links are good reading and should give you a better insight into this..

    thatnks for that mate was very good reading i had to read it a few times to get it to sink in tho.
    now i understand all of that i need to find places to get the right parts from or made
