How hard would it be to twin charge a series 1 ?
And how much would this cost in Theory?

Probably very very hard , and very expensive. You'd probably be better off going with a SII or SIII swap and then twin charging. Now if you were to just go turbo , and ditch the s/c that could probably be done a bit cheaper.

Agreed, either go turbo instead of S/C, or you'll have to swap engines and then twincharge it, which will cost a lot. My guess is that turbocharging your Riv will cost around $5,000, but that's just a lucky guess.


Turbo Series I...that's like a GN right there! If you got the time and money, you should turbo your Riv, it'd kick ass!

I say twin charge it and use a remote mounted turbo to cut down on underhood temp and keep the engine bay slightly less crowded.

They might have something you can work with. my guess is just the turbo set up alone would cost about 2k which doesn't include anything it would take for you engine to handle the extra boost coming from a twin charged system.
