Default Supercharge a 08 non-s?

I bought my first mini last week, a 2008 non-S, non-convertible. I want to play around with it and make it go faster. I talked to the local Euro-racing guru in my area and he told me nothing I can do can make my mini go that much faster. He is a porche fan and raced professionally for generations, but whatever.

Anyway, I have looked at some Cold air intake systems and I found the lowest price to be ~$220. I am also reading about these aftermarket superchargers that is supposed to pull more horsepower than the coldair.
Here is the link to the supercharger Mini Cooper Mini Cooper Electric Supercharger Kits Mini Cooper Mini Cooper Superchargers

Can I put this on my non-S without damaging it? I drive this car everyday and my wife too so it will see average miles so I don't want something that is just made for professionals, just a little pep. Help

Those are an ABSOLUTE scam ... Read up on electric superchargers most are just a marine bilge blower and flow very little air
