Hey,
There are two books you should read before you embark on supercharging anything: "Maximun Boost" and "Supercharged." They are both by the same author and are both available through amazon. There is a small section in the book about the 930. It explains that Porsche's decision to use a large turbo(more lag than nessacary, but also more top end power) was for two reasons:
1: these cars are built to fly down the audobaun at top speed and lag is not really an issue when you are doing that kind of driving
2: air cooled engines have trouble sheading heat from prodigious amounts of low-speed boost.

Check out the books, you'll learn more in a night of reading than a lifetime of bench racing.

Good luck
Pat
