    supercharging is not a retro-fit

    Fitting depends on a few things, what block you have and how much money you have too. Quite often it is cheaper to just put a bigger engine in.

    The only upgrade would be to the 4.4 litre V8 block in the E34 car.

    Supercharging will require different manifolds amongst other things, possibly also the compression ratio will need to be lowered. This is all extensive work. No un-do-able though.

    The common trick is to fit the supercharger in place of the A/C compressor, though personally I'd not like to lose the A/C.

    A bit more work involved in a twin charge setup but still just as doable,

    The 525i engine is not going to give you the shove that the 535i unit offers
