You don't. Put it this way: whatever you paid for the car, it's going to cost you more than that for the supercharger. You're looking at $4000 - $6000 JUST for the supercharger itself. That is not counting tuning, injectors, and all the supporting modifications that come with such a modification. How many miles are on the car? If 100k plus, I wouldn't put a blower on it until you rebuild the entire engine and forge some of the internals to handle the extra pressure, which you should really do anyway regardless of the mileage. All in, you'll need over $10k to have it DONE RIGHT. I'm willing to bet that's more than the car is even worth at this point. Now, if you're going to keep it forever, that's one thing. But in my business people often come in asking these kinds of questions and are shocked by the price tag of the work. It's no easy task. Any idiot can slap a blower on a motor. But to have it done reliably, correctly, and with great street manners takes more skill....and more skill = more $$$$
