    thoughts about supercharger

    So i hate the new look of the red 2018 GP1800 compared to the 2017 red Gp1800 so i am torn between the all red FX SVHO or the grey and red 2018 VXR.

    since the supercharger looks like you have to do work into off the bat is there a better supercharger or turbo on the market than the stock one to drop into the VXR making it a sleeper but perform like the GP?

    I think there are differences in engine internals between SVHO and NA 1.8 engines. Compression, for example.

    Adding supercharger or turbocharger to the NA engine is a lot of work and cost. If all you want is a look closer to 2017, that is straightforward.

    You can change the 2018 white plastic pieces to the black from prior year. Probably not that expensive to do.

    2018 Decals can be removed, add 2017 decals if you wish.

    If I recall correctly the NA blocks don't have the oil galleries for a supercharger install.
