The supercharger is on a clutch that would disengage after the turbo spools. The supercharger also has a wastegate that dumps into the tubo inlet and a bypass around it.
There should be very little parasitic drag with that setup. Unfortunately the Turbo/SC combo makes for a very complicated and heavy addition to any engine. It would also need the right EFI and electronic controls to make all the events work together optimally.
Very interesting project. I have thought of doing it myself if it could be justified.
