    Well considering there is a turbo charger on the top left of the pic then yes it would lead him to believe its a turbo charger kit.. DUHHHH!!

    A lot of turbos and superchargers look similar, certainly from the angle the one in the OPs pic is shown anyway..

    I just think forced induction on an N42 engine is an extremely expensive way of breaking an engine.. I mean if I wanted to destroy my engine i'd just drop the oil out of it and run it dry.. doesn't cost anything that way

    Only joking OP.. good luck with it mate

    Did this project ever get completed ?

    I'd be interested in the results of that centrifugal S/C on that engine.
