Good point, I think the cost alone makes it unreasonable

I would expect that adding much power, whether via supercharger,
turbocharger or bigger engine would be of some concern. Van's states a
Vne for most of their models, including the -8 at 200kts or 230 mph true
airspeed. I am familiar with an -8 with the IO-390 engine that can get
very close to that Vne in level flight. The Vne is set due to the design
flutter speed. Vans has a white paper that is mostly aimed at the 10,
against turbo-normalizing, which does the calculation that if 75% power
can be maintained to 12,000 ft, the aircraft can exceed that Vne at that
power setting. Everyone makes their own choices with experimental
amateur built. I choose to pay attention to that Vne with my -10.
