PK2 has a supercharged 2.5L in Orange county that has survived well but he understands it's limitations and pushes it in small doses. Neither of these guys are track rats that push their cars to the limit during 5-25 minute track sessions/day.

After looking hard at this over the years and considering my driving style I will choose displacement over intake boost when the time comes. BYprodriver's 3.6L build looks interesting enough.
"There is no replacement for displacement" I'll be at the PCA OCR autoX May 20th if you want to checkout the net results.
