Bumping this thread for some updates and maybe performance results from anyone who has successfully completed a boosted gy6, sc or turbo. I'm doing my swap soon and am wondering what direction to go. What's the longevity like for a gy6 running boost?

I was thinking about N20 to my GY6... I know it's been done, I've seen them.

As far a longevity, it's a GY6. Ride it like hell and If you blow it up, go get another.

I think adding a supercharger is more of an experiment... a hobby to see if you can do it or if it can be done.

Kinda what I was thinking too. I've seen plenty of pics of turbos on on a ruck, not so many with super chargers. I was wondering more along the lines of is it worth the cost and hours to get it right? If people are only seeing a 5mph gain then I can go ahead and forget about this lol.
