Well, with properly cooled system and powered by say the crankshaft, wont we be able to get a boost, even slightly lesser permanently?.

this is has been discussed, and i think tried, too, on TBHP.
in one line, there are no pros, and it is a con.

Just for the sake of anyone else who may be searching for option, and whose pockets are jingling, Rotrex makes a Supercharger for the 1.6 duratec, for roundabout EUR 4k.

Although, the intake seems off.
