2.0 zetec twincharging?

Ok well I wanted to know everyone's opinions on the matter and where I stand, I currently have a 2002 2.0 that is built not sure what cam but Je pistons eagle rods, adjustable cam gears, sport header, jackson racing supercharger and by twin charging I mean running a turbo into the supercharger. How much boost can these blocks hold, and has anyone ever done it? Sorry if I left any info out but feel free to ask and don't be afraid to point out anything I missed

it was done once. by a member called CHIBULLSAN. unfortunately, all of the picture links are broken and lost forever. He no longer frequents the forums as it was a nearly a decade ago he did it. If memory serves, he had Tom from Focus-Power tune it.....it lasted a little while but ultimately blew up, and it was a built motor.

I only want a combined psi of both boosting near 12 nothing to crazy, and I know why not just switch to a turbo but I like the reaction of my supercharger as it is one of my dd's and I think it would be something to look forward to also what trim turbos would I look into

Reaction of the supercharger?

Why not just run your supercharger at 12psi?

the m45 is already struggling at original boost levels for a 2.0liter motor.....it's just going to make a crapload of heat at 12psi and likely not make a whole lot more power due to that.

By reaction I mean It is boosting the whole rpm range I have no matter what as opposed to a turbo that would just start spooling around 3000 or so depending on the ar but I want it spooling more towards the top than anything so the supercharger would be for my lower rpms, this is also a dd if I didn't mention that, and I'm new to fuel injection on cars building them up atleast.

IMO, just sell the supercharger and go turbo. No point in complicating things.
