That reminds me of this question...
"What's the difference between mules, donkeys, burros, and jackasses?"

Turbo = turbine ... check

charger = air compressor ... check

belt driven ... check

You can call an ass a donkey, but it's still an ass.

I am curious why people would want a supercharged/turbocharged V6 over an LS3 from the factory....
There are many advantages the LS3 has....

....and supercharger is driven by a belt. A turbocharger is not. This is universally the case. I don't see how the two can be confused.

But, and I'm not saying this is right, but isn't a supercharger a mechanically driven air compressor and a turbocharger an exhaust gas driven compressor?

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?

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!

Sooooo, you will penalize yourself by kissing a pretty girl in public, ehhhh?

That's really risking alot. LOL

I might do that just for fun. Mrs. Number 3 and I are going grocery getting so I'll kiss her in public and tell you what horrible things befall me for doing that.

Yes, MC69, the Rotrex is a vane supercharger (it is very much in love with itself).

http://www.rotrex.com/index1.htm

It is a mechanically driven vane supercharger. So on the business end it looks like a turbo, but on the driving end it is a belt drive rather than exhaust gas vane driven.

It looks like an interesting drive mechanism too.

And NO... You guys don't get to choose the girl

Yeah, but is it a TURBOcharger? Was turbo derived from turbine?

..... I forgot what we were talking about... Did someone mention cold beer and fries?

Oh yeah, Is an LS3 really just a fancy air compressor? A SUPERcompressor? (TURBOcompressor?)

Yeah, too bad as a moderator you had to clean up too by eliminating all the posts on that car that doesn't exist. Shnomac would be sad knowing everything you deleted.
