That's how I've always looked at them.

It just so happens that most superchargers are scroll type.

And that just makes me wonder what the definition of a SUPERcharger is vs. say just a charger? EXXXactly... who decided the definition?

Hmmmmmmmmmmm, Shno is that beer cold yet?


Kind of like kids calling wheels...'rims'

It's almost all semantics.... If someone can prove me wrong, I'll kiss a pretty girl... in public even.

Call me a liar, but I think the rotrex is vane.

.... Of course even a scroll could be called a vane I guess... See there? It's those dam semantics.

... Oh yeah... Ram Air DOES exist beaches!
