Supercharge my 2011?

Iv been thinking about putting a supercharger on my car and fabricating it. What do you guys think about this. Or if anyone else has done it how does it perform? I'd like to turbo with the Fswerks but it's to much money:/. Anyone with advise would be greatly appreciated.

i havnt seen or heard of a second gen that has been supercharged.
i know there is something in the pipes for the '12s and up....

if there was one available for us then im sure i wouldve been the first.

if there is one out there i need to know NOW!!

im sure you can take a procharger and with a lot of fab work make something work. there isnt mush room on the belt drive side to accommodate an extra pulley or the supercharger. there would most likely need to be a pulley/driveshaft to transfer the power to the driverside where there is more room for it.

Yeah I'm sure they dont make one. A guy I work with is like a genius and mentioned it along with exactly what to use and do. So I figured I'd post up on it. I do get what you mean about not enough room that's also why I was asking. Idk about having the first 2nd gen with a supercharger but if I could figure it out that would be sick!!

Depending on your ability & determination ANYTHING can be done. Tho shall not utter the word CAN'T! Figure out how much air you want. Think about if you can move things...alt, a/c. Do you want to have a inter-cooler??? Do you want nitrous? You want the drive system to be spot on & ridged. Also how much boost how FAST! Good luck. By the way i'm a aircraft surgeon Cessnas 2 Boeings.

First off, damn.. You seem to know your stuff. And I was looking at my car today at work and it does seem doable. The guy I mentioned who know a lot about like everything said I would just have to mod a bracket to get it in line with the belt then also a collector to the throttle body. It sounds easier than it looks. I'm looking for around 8-10 lbs and idk about nitrous.. And yes I want to go fast.

My plan is to first figure out what supercharger I can use and then start modding it up. And then my biggest thing is gonna be a dyno tune. That's the only thing that's really stopping me.. If I can fine a place or have someone help me on here then I would be good to go. So if anyone is a tuning freak or knows what the hell their doing then please help me out. Lol

First off thanks big time 4 the kudos. I ares a geek. The biggest problems with one off/first projects is lack of hair,,,,got to have a lot up there to ponder & money. You may want to think about pistons, rings, coating your skirts, exhaust sys. Also remember the ECU is only 1 & 0's. Analytical thinkin does work.
