That car did have 305s on the rear.

I'm wondering how much of an improvement a supercharger kit will be? I supercharged my 330Ci and that was a huge difference. I'd hate to spend $10k+ on a marginal improvement. I'm sure it would help rocketing out of tight corners on the track but what is the use if you can't put the power to the ground?

DISCLAIMER: I just read this...really not an expert on this.
Oh, I should also add an important point, the car in queston did NOT have an M3-differential that would make a hell of a difference as well. If I recall, it had an SMG tranny, but not the differential.
