On initial starting the right cam failed destroyed the timing gear and filled the case with debris.
We have totally striped the motor and are replacing all bearings etc.

Can I install a supercharger with this compression ratio?
Yes you can, albeit a low boost 0.45 bar setup. Contact Protomotive. They are the experts on these aftermarket systems.

BTW, too much parasitic losses with superchargers. They rob engine power to make power. Turbo'ing is far more efficient
