Supercharging 318is,but not the usual way

Hello, has any one ever supercharged there 318 with a centrifugal supercharger, not like the one the DASC uses(corkscrew), im thinking this way would be nice because it would be intercooled, any ideas on how i should approach this, im gonna build a spare 318 engine up in my garage(so i can still drive my car), gonna have it on a stand so i can mess around with placement of the s/c, well any advice would be nice, im thinking placing the supercharger in the A/C pump area, less belt travel, plus convenience of plumbing for intercooler,

thanks
p.s. m42-4 guys give me some encouragement

hey i think you are a myspace friend, ha well thanks, i think i would get better gains with the centrifugal s/c due to the front mount intercooler, so much potential power is lost through the heat, cant wait, im gonna get my spare engine soon, sourced one with 78,000 miles!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

thats more weight, wont handle as well, if you look at the m42 you will see how far back it is pushed, 50/50 balance

They are all vitually 50/50. BMW moved things around a bit to ensure this.
