THEORETICAL... can you turbo/supercharge an m110?

hey guys,
so this is completely theoretical and i would never consider doing it to my car but im wondering if it is possible to turbocharge or supercharge a m110 motor? i noticed that when the catalytic converter is out then there is a lot of space on that side of the motor.

any thoughts??

Either way you need to go to fuel injection. The 4A1 won't handle the boost aspect.

yeah, these guys tried the supercharger first, and got about 320hp, and swapped to the turbo and got somewhere along 370hp, as far as i know its still up and running, and the videos ive seen they abused the heck out of it

Loads of people have done this - some seem to have started with SLK (M111) superchargers but quickly move on to turbos as the boost from the superchargers doesn't suit their going back in time requirements...
