Supercharging an MK6

Yesterday i drove my brothers 200sx. and now that ive experience forced induction i want it too.
Im seriously considering supercharging my new mk6 fiesta with the use of a supercharger from the 1.6 twin cam 4-AGZE corolla engine.
Can the standard engine management deal with a low boost supercharger kit.... around 5psi and intercooled. Could standard compression be retained?
I cant stress enough that i dont want to loose any reliability what so ever.
If anybody knows anything about doing this sort of work please contribute a few words cuz if i do this i would like to do it right..

Re: Supercharging an MK6

It would require some major work. There is almost no space to mount the supercharger so you would need to move many items (water tanks etc as they cover the pullies). You would need to change pistons as the current 11 compression ratio is way too high for running force induction and would need head work again to lower compression.
Finally you would need a new ECU.

If you want extra power getting a Focus st170 engine would probably be the better option.

In not sure about how much a st170 motor is. People in the Uk say they do fit but im yet to see one.

Changing the ligh bulbs look me around 10 minutes. wasn't hard at all.
