That’s kinda where I’m at. I don’t see the need to do cams or valve springs because if I wanted serious power I’d do boost. There are factory parts to do either a turbo or a supercharger

I am halfway considering an electric supercharger for when I want some “real” power, but that’s another topic

Something like that TorqAmp electric supercharger?

Something along those lines but DIY if possible and lacking the DC-DC converter to charge its LiPo pack. Thought is to grid charge it for 30-40min of boost

Sounds interesting. Well, considering some ricers are still into Nitrous Oxide and don't seem to get bothered by the expense with the recharges, a plug-in electric supercharger seems to not be a bad idea at all.

I mean it sounds like a good idea to me, though the compressor would be an intake restriction unless I figured out some kind of bypass system

That's not rocket-science.
