How would you supercharge a Vincent?

Putting aside for a moment the obvious riposte of "Why would you want to?", I would like some advice from Vincent experts on how this might be achieved.

I have written a book called The Horsepower Whisperer and the eponymous hero rides an Egli-framed Vincent. Nick Hob is a bit like a horse whisperer except that instead of calming wild animals he enrages innocent engines to great feats of power and endurance by whispering up horsepower. He torques the talk and races the race in the mechanised Wild Hunt and rides a blasphemously supercharged Egli-Vincent. Obviously.

I'm preparing some promotional material to publicise The Horsepower Whisperer and these include some images of Hob on his Vinnie, Nosferatu.

But before I get stuck in, how would the ladies and gentlemen who are steeped in Vincent lore supercharge the ultimate motorbike?
