I own a 1986 528e and was wondering if anybody has supercharged or turbocharged the 2.7L engine in the E28, as i'm looking to add some performance to the car. Would this be the way to add power or are there better options. Also does anybody know if the pistons are cast or forged in that engine.

The pistons in this motor are cast pistons I found out the hard way by blowing the motor up and having to pull it apart. By the way when and if you do boost it let me know your route of choice as I too would like to boost mine when the engine swap is all done. Thanx.
