I always wondered if it would be possible to turbo or supercharge the 200vi

Can help me anyone?

If its not possible what else can i do?

Anything is possible, the main factor is how deep you wallet is? The Ks construction doesn't lend itself to well to high powered turbo applications as it was designed as a lightweight modular engine. Even for a low pressure application i would budget for some uprated liners, fasterners and pistons. With regards VVC, most people tend to bin this on highpower engines. If you where looking to keep it you would need to find an EMS that would allow you to control the mechanism and still see boost.

Turbo tecnhics do one, although it is aimed at the Elise/F.

You don't bin the VVC mech's anymore as that is old school, or don't know what they are doing territory.

Emerald also do an ECu with mappings that can control the VVC mech's.

I was still under the impression that all the high power Ks ran conventional valvetrains??

Quite a few 220+ VVC K's out there now.

Problem used to be that no one knew how to control them, so as soon as you needed an aftermarket ECU they had to go. Not the case anymore.
