Default my A4 B5 AWD wants some more hp.

Well actually I want some more hp. I love this car and would definetly like to retire it when I am out of college and make it a extremly fun car to drive but what can be done to improve the performance. I would like a supercharger but the funds aren't avaiable for it yet and out of curiosity is there anyway to put a turbo in it?

I'm guessing you have a 2.8L. You could do the supercharger, but selling the A4 and getting an S4 would be a better choice

ya sorry i got a 2.8L. why would you decide to just get a s4? I am going with the idea of ease, time and cost to just get more HP.

is there any way that you could turbo it? the only problem that i see is electronics but i very easily could be overlooking somethin else.

Nitrous or SC are your only options and SC only if you have a 30v, but it would be less of a headache to just sell your 2.8 and buy a S4 2.7t.

really don't want to sell and buy a new car. I think i would rather go ahead and do the SC if I can get one at the right price.

I have been reading up on some electric turbos. If I would fab one up how many RPM's do you think I will need to reach the neccesary boost to see a performance gain?

Well I have been doing alot of research in electric turbos and some that are alot more sufisticated than the ones you see on ebay.

I really don't want to juice it because I want constant power.
