I'm a screw fan myself. I had a 6-71 blown BBC (I know...it's "old school")...for a streetcar, the power was insane. The only way I could describe it was VIOLENT at any RPM. If I was gonna buy another, I'd go with a procharger.

I'm a stickler for terminology.........turbos, roots style and centrifugals are all superchargers. Turbos and centrifugals are similar in that they both 'pump' air into the motor using an impeller with the differences being in the drive source. Turbos are driven via exhaust gases while centrifugals are belt driven. Roots style blowers are belt driven, but their advantage is more torque earlier in the powerband. This advantage is due to the positive displacement of the lobes in the roots case.

They all make power, but for me the roots style is superior in all aspects.:roxor:

I think GM has the ability to creat a forced induction motor that has both types of blowers. The screw type is much more efficient than a slow snail. Though most people would tend to go the slow route. Thus the whole turbo and nosssss forced induction craze.
But for the 9MM clearance they have under the hood on the 2010 Camaro I would go with a blower that has more nails in it. :D
