    If you're asking this sort of question, you shouldn't be DIY'ing

    Get some books on the subject, have a read up. Its a vast project with many pitfalls. Not something you can just dabble in. Alot of engineering required and machining to do properly.

    can not see the point of super charging a 2lt it will be very expensive to do and most of the bigger 5 series will be quicker any way and your insurance will rape you

    I dont think that was helpful.

    I thought it was a 2.5 engine, anyhow.

    Just to set things straight, s/c is a good way of extracting more power, if you read my thread i squeezed 230hp from the 1.9 M44, and it would have gone further with some charge cooling.
    It can be done with a 'parts bin' approach but it will be alot of trial and error, and i'm not sure whether your current engine management would cope/could be mapped. You'd probably have to go for an independant ECU like Omex etc.
    It all adds up.

    But it is worth doing if you like a challenge, just dont underestimate the work, its not like changing an engine out.
