My 1999 NB had one installed when I purchased it this spring. I don't know much about them except the previous owner said he chose it instead of the turbo because they are supposed to be less problem prone and we haven't had any problems with it yet. If you have any specific questions, I can ask my husband. I have to run premium gas and I was told to make sure anyone that works on the car knows about the supercharger.blutopless2 said:Is anyone on here running one of these superchargers for the 2.0L?
I would like to know what people think of them.
I probably don't know what I'm talking about here, but the previous owner said all mods to my NB were done by a VW tech - I'm thinking on the side so if you have a VW dealer in your area, could you ask one of their techs if they would be willing to install on the side then order the supercharger from the closest location? My apologies if I'm not making any sense, just chalk it up to being a female that doesn't know anything about auto mechanics but trying to help.blutopless2 said:from neuspeeds website they claim up to 50% hp increase.. the Oz beetle spec is 85kW or 114hp... so i would expect to see the new specs after supercharged being around the 120kW 160hp mark.
My only problem is that there are no dealers in Australia that neuspeed lists.. so i dont know about installation etc.
