Hey everybody,

I'm new to the forum and to the world of car tuning/styling, but excited to learn some new stuff. If there's anything wrong with my post, please let me know!

I own a 2009 Golf Mk5 Variant with a 1.4 TSI 122 HP engine (code CAX) and am looking to get some more power out of it. Normally the TSI engines are twincharged, but I learned that, although my TSI has a turbo, it doesn't actually have a supercharger because it is the 122 HP version and not the 140 HP or up.

I found a supercharger online that is said to be for the 1.4 TSI engines, but I can't find any information on if it is possible to install this on my engine.
The description says that it comes with the original 53mm pulley and if requested with the aspirator and tensioner (not sure about these translations).

So what I would like to know is:
Is it possible to install a supercharger on my version of the engine?
Could I do this myself?
If so, what parts would I need for this?
How much power and torque can i expect to gain?

Would love to get some insight into the possibilities of making the car a little more fun to drive!
