VW G60 supercharger

Has anyone tinkered around with using a VW Corrado G60 supercharger on an SVX? It looks like it's a pretty small unit, which should help with mounting, running a drive belt, and routing the incoming and outgoing air, especially if you don't run an intercooler...

Anyone?

I can't imagine the g-lader flows enough for the EG33. With the stock pulleys it didn't make more than 200hp..

Finding a used aftermarket centrifugal supercharger would likely be less expensive, last longer, and match the EG33 better with similar or improved packaging.

Re: VW G60 supercharger

Someone should check out the SC from the Audi 3.0T engine.

IT has built air/water intercoolers and seems about the right size/shape.
