ROW SC->super(turbo)charged?

Am I barking up the wrong tree due to the higher compression of the ROW 3.0L? I am trying to gather as much info as I can from the search engine, but it is a bit tough to find appropriate threads for supercharging NA cars. Of all the threads I have seen (thanks to everyone for all the info gathered even though you may not realize people are still reading/learning from it), none have addressed the higher c.r. of the ROW. Thanks in advance.

It can be done but CIS and hi-comp pistons are making it hard. Better to do it to US-market Carrera. You get better gearbox (G50), EFI and lower comp.

ROW SC would be doable in semi-priceworthy fashion with MS EFI conversion and low-boost. E85 would allow full boost. But you would still have to live with 915 tranny and slightly shoddy brakes.

I would sell it, buy a slightly worn Carrera and work from there...l

lol to sell it...I just bought it! I love the car, but have five years to tinker before I'm "allowed" to buy another car...part of the contract with the wife. Maybe I'll have to wait for my next p-car or super(turbo)charging...oh well, cams and exhaust it is I guess. Thanks.
