I am thinking of buying a 1.3L stock Diahatsu Charade on the weekend. I want to know if it's a realistic option to supercharge it.
I don't know much about engines or cars, so you'll have to go easy on me.
I assume some kind of small centrifugal unit taken from some other little Japanese car and adapted to fit the Charade would be the go. I've seen a few on eBay kicking around for about $500AUD.
But after I've got the actual unit, then there's all the issues of fuel management, ignition systems, bypass valve, oil-tapping etc. I have yet to see any kit adapted for this particular engine & I wouldn't know where to even start with that kind of stuff...
Any advice anyone can give me would be appreciated.
Like I said, I don't even know if supercharging a Charade would even be a practical and realistic option.
I found this old (sold) item on eBay indicating it not only can be done, but it has been done before...
