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?
