Close to purchasing a 250. I would like to restore and keep somewhat factory original (may go with a new color). What are some common upgrades which can be done to the 250 engine to get more HP out of it?

I looked at the engines from Wishbone Classics and love their work, however they are now quoting me around $10k for one of their fully done engines.

Is there a supercharger kit for the 250 engine?

The same SC kit that fits the TR6 is also good for the 250. Once sold by Moss Motors and other independents, it may now take a private purchase to obtain.
Otherwise, one can go with the usual upgrades of a good road cam, higher CR, and more, depending on one's budget.

Thank You. I guess the SC is no longer available for the TR6/250 engine.

I think having the engine rebuilt with proper upgrades would be the way I would prefer going either way.

Any list of items members would recommend?

Josh,
Have you considered fuel injection or TBI? Patton Machine sells a reasonably priced kit. Not sure how much HP it will add, but it will make the engine start smoother and run more economical.
