Default Discovery Series II V8 Upgrades

I have been looking to upgrade my 2004 Disco with a supercharger. I have a supercharged range rover sport and i love it to death and would love that kind of response with the truck. Now my question is, is it possible to install a supercharger on the 2004 Series 2 V8 or would I have to replace the motor entirely?

Rovers are not sports cars. That RR sport has a 400hp supercharged V8. Without a supercharger its 300hp. Which is considerably more than the discovery engine. The problem with supercharging is, you will need stronger valves, pistons, etc. to handle the higher compressions and stress that the supercharger puts on the engine. In the end it will cost you more than its worth in my opinion. I know what you mean, we have a supercharged jaguar and I LOVE the sound and feeling you get, as you are sucked back in your seat rocketing past the idiot in his low rider honda with a rumbling muffler. I would like to supercharge my rover, but its just not in the cards.
