Well, I don't like FI engines. Secondly, I don't like the idea of a supercharged SUV either.

i wouldnt do it. not because i dont like FI, but it would make more sense to trade for an x5 4.4. if you really want power and have the money, you can probably get the dinan supercharger for the 4.0 engine, or you could trade for an x5 4.6.

It depends on your priorities. Are you looking to go fast? Are you looking to have better towing capability? ...these decisions influence not only your purchase of a blower, but also the type.
