VtMike Posted September 21, 2018 Report Share Posted September 21, 2018 It looks like most R2s cost more than I want to pay, so now I am thinking more of getting a nice R1 driver 4 speed with A/C. But I would still like to have R2 performance. I was just looking at prior threads re: converting an R1 into a R2. Someone warned that adding a Paxton supercharger wouldn't be worth it because of the added upkeep, maintenance, etc. Question: Could you upgrade the R1 engine to R2 level performance without the Paxton supercharger, but still keep it mild enough to be streetable? Maybe fuel injection? Maybe roller cams? Maybe a modern turbo that would be more reliable? I am sure this is not original thinking. Are there R1s out there where this approach has been taken?
