Ive wanted to know about this as well. I've heard supercharges are the way to go because you don't have to swap so much stuff out.

I don't see remapping the ECU, new injectors, fuel pump, manifold, intake, etc. That would be a half-ass way of doing it, certainly nothing I'd recommend to anyone. Again, could it be done, probably? Should it be done? Not with that short list...
yeah man, i thought it was pretty basic when i turbo'd my ranger, but man that ist got really long really fast once i started tearing into it. and along with that list came a huge price tag

Otherwise, I too would be looking at Maggies.

Yes, Whipple has been in the game a long while. Haven't owned one though so I cannot attest to their performance.
