Does supercharging these not make for more issues than enough?

I was talking some time ago with an Indy in Halesowen and he said tuning them, keeping them cool etc wasn’t as easy as people though. He also said the aftermarket service from the supercharger supplier wasn’t great either.

supercharging one of these must make it crazy fast and even more instant torque. have never found the S54 wanting for grunt

each to their own and must be a right handful in the wet.

It's my Supercharged car that is for sale.
Sorry, I meant to post it for sale on here but I have been crazy with work but will get it sorted on the weekend (I hope). I am not sure I have ever heard of an issue with keeping them cool, I certainly haven't had one. I liked the Supercharger so much that I bought one for the MG SVR I am building as they make one for the Coyote (Mustang) engine.
After service is great I have found. They are really crazy busy at the moment as their Mustang charger is really popular but the quality is outstanding and not sure I have seen many issues with the Z4m or the M3 guys who used them. It is also really maintenance easy. A change of supercharger oil every so often not much else
It is crazy fast but in a fun way. I have never really been in trouble although it has not really been stressed in my ownership. It's really quick off the line but it's the 40mph to 120 that is mind-blowing. My one crackles and pops with the blow-off valve and exhaust which I thought I would hate but really love as it's a real sense of occasion. The race dash has shift lights and again I can monitor all temps on that and I have never had any issue.
Z4m, ESS Supercharger, Bilstein B16's, AP big brakes and a Roll cage.
