Running a supercharger instead of AC unit?

Hi all,

I believe there are kits out there for other cars but I havn't seen this done on Mercedes engines, I am thinking about twin charging my OM606 at some point and running both a turbo and supercharger. Is there anything stopping me simply unbolting the stock AC unit and fitting a supercharger/pro charger in its place and use the OEM belts etc?

I'm building a compound turbo/supercharged car and keeping everything working as is. No reason to lose the AC!

No kits that I know of, I am fabricating everything, mounts, pulleys, etc...

Thanks for the info, I am tempted to lose the AC system in mine as being in the UK its rarely used - I have set the climate control to 'EC' for economy to make sure that the AC clutch isn't on as it would sap some power from the engine.

I will have a think about what else I might do over on that side of the engine, although there is the intercooler pipework and inlet manifold so I don't know how much space it would free up.

I am just thinking about different ideas, might actually be interesting to run a compound turbo/supercharger setup with the stock turbo to see what happens!

The stock turbo would be awful in a compound situation with a supercharger. You have to have the turbo blowing into the SC and it's so tiny, it's barely up to the job at hand even running in stock configuration.

Thats very true, will look at other options.
