Having extensively looked into this and weighed up the pros and cons of each set up, I would say Rotrex - light, highly efficient, most power, silent operation. Storm are offering a range of stages on a Mk4.

You thinking of going FI ?
im weighing up my options simon .....

what i dont want is to go fast in a straight line then loose driveability or reliability ..... would a supercharge hold up ok ? im talking a whole day a spa flat out or any other track day cause thats where i would put all the power to use if not its no good to me

Rotrex would be the most reliable option Andy, always thought the C30 was best but there been some good results using the C38 on R32's.

With you doing a few track days I'd probably get a seperate oil cooler too, really not essential but would help I suppose............also if you get it mapped/fitted right you'll have no belt slippage & still be able to run the standard clutch/gearbox.....

I've put 6k on my rotrex in 2 months and it has been drive hard mate. I've not had any issues atall with mine and drive ability is good, about town I average 21-22 mpg and on motorway about 24-25 . Plus the extra power puts a big smile on your face , it scares a lot of things

Yea I would happily give it some all day and be quite safe feeling. I've got a couple of trips to tracks and strips coming up so it will be getting drive hard all day at them. I'm still at the drive it like you stole it stage lol. And the noise is unreal. Well if mpg isn't an issue then I'd say go for it

Hi Andy,

I can't comment on the charger from experience but from all I've read I would say Rotrex.
On a side note, have you taken into consideration the work you might need to do to the engine so it doesn't go pop with the extra power and being high mileage?

I've tracked my old VR6 which was running a C30 rotrex. Would happily go round and round all day long. You will have more corner entry speed but you have the brakes anyway, it just means you can surprise more things on track.

You under some commission scheme for storm lol

Rotrex, when I was looking to charge my clio that was the top brand everyone recommended.

They use Rotrex and they got a good kit now from what i have been reading drive in - drive out 5K! seems awesome

Rotrex.

I've done a good few track days with mine and never had a charger related problem. I'd look into United Motorsports/ The Phirms new kit which uses the C38.

The Phirm are removing the C30 from mine in a couple of weeks and replacing it with a C38
