I ran across pics of a Renault Gordini with a Judson Supercharger. My questions are: would this work on a Dauphine? How much power could I increase (especially since I'm at 6000 ft above sea level), and where do I look for one?
I'm in Bolivia, with better connections to the rest of this continent and the US. The parts for my Mini had to go from the UK to the US by DHL, then by truck/boat/truck to here.

The Judson supercharger was fitted to the Gordini dauphin as a bolt on kit .
It raised the power by approx 40% from 40 to 56 bhp

This was quite a well documented conversion at the time but I reckon you have little to no chance of finding one now.

It would be quite possible to adapt a modern s/c which I suspect could give even better results......................................as long as the engine is sound
