does anyone know if it can be done/has been done? i know that LPG loves compression and the idea of 10+psi of boost on tap and the resulting power interests me..

By blown I am guessing you mean being turbo/super charged? The first thing that comes to mind is the cost of that setup. I wonder if the insurance company would like to know you are driving around in a turbo charged 308 running on super high octane LPG. :D This interests me now a lot. I wonder if someone here has any professional experience with this.

I would seriously think that LPG has the potential to kill most cars on the road if it was done up properly.

was thinking blown, I dont like the idea of waiting for a turbo to spool up and and i havent got much room in the enginebay for a pair of snails.... a supercharger on the other hand would require bonnet mods is about all i reckon. cooling and lubrication of the lower vanes would be an issue...

i'm not lookin at anytime soon but i know that 600-700rwhp is easily achievable with a blower and lpg means not having to run lower compression style pistons to compensate for the boost...

Might be worth getting in contact with CAPA Superchargers, they've been around a while and would have all the info you need.
