Power Mods - N/A to Supercharged

My end goal would be to supercharge my Type R, I was wondering which engine and power modifications I should invest in?

I've read on here many owners buy a intake, race manifold and FD2 camshafts seem to work well too.

What else can I buy, install and enjoy the car while it is naturally aspirated?

I'm hoping some owners can help

Hi, thanks for the reply, i have the stock lsd (2011 type r) and meister r coilovers. Is the balancer shaft delete kit basically the fd2 oil pump?

I read a thread from a few years ago which, was supposed to be a supercharging guide but it was never finished.

So the list so far

Intake, race manifold, cat back exhaust, brakes(k sport/stoptech), balancer shaft delete kit, clutch and flywheel.

These are the mods that I can do before supercharging.

If anyone else can add to the list that would be great!

List will be updated based on the experience and knowledge of the community.

If your doing the race manifold I would do whole exhaust personally to get the best power , yes the balancer shaft delete kit is the fd2 oil pump kit , obviously a hondata box will be needed aswel but you should be ok then pal

You won't need to change the LSD

Brakes wise for stoptech or KSports don't get the Spoon callipers, new clutch and flywheel would be good investments, race header and 3" exhaust, probably wouldn't bother with cams if your end goal is to supercharge

The beauty of the FD2 oil pump and lighter flywheel is just how quickly the car revs, makes a huge difference, a shorter final drive is very good too but as your going charged it wouldn't work that well with the charger imo

I like the idea of the engine being able to rev faster. I am guessing they both free up more power by making the car lighter?

Not so much the car but the moving parts, take the flywheel for example, it spins as the car revs, so my analogy would be put a 10kg hoop on your arm and start trying to spin it, then replace that with a 2kg hoop and see how much easier it is to spin, the lighter flywheel is the same concept

Excellent analogy! Here is my fn2 in july, i got some lighter evo 6 wheels on to clear bigger brakes and reduce some unsprung mass.

They don't perform as well as the stoptechs, coupled with the fact that they are almost the same price for calipers alone versus a full BBK

Oil pump conversion I wouldn't bother with if going boosted.
Its more of an NA mod to make it spin up a bit quicker.... something you wont be wanting when boosted.
Ignore talk about final drives for now as well. We tend to go longer on the boosted cars whereas NA they go shorter

Thank you for your input and honesty, is there anything else that you can recommend before installing the supercharger? I want to enjoy the car while NA before finally going boosted. If that is possible and makes sense?, also your 3 inch cat back sounds great on my car! I have a cpl intake, looking to install a manifold and get a remap done soon!

I think the problem your going to face is that a lot of the "best" NA mods aren't needed, don't work so well or actually hinder you when boosted, tbh I'd save your money on much of these mods and go boosted, excluding the obvious clutch, flywheel brakes etc

Thanks then I will enjoy the car with just intake, full exhaust and remap. Save up for supporting mods and charger.

Then can I ask is there such thing as the most reliable supercharger?

IMO eaton chargers like Comptech and Jackson intercooled will be more reliable and more fun than a rotrex but the rotrex will make more power

Have you considered a TDI north turbo kit?
