Well Dave,
this one has been hashed out to fistacuffs and you`ll find TONS of info on here if you search. A supercharger creates power with no lag,right from idle which is nice but it creates this power at great cost. lt might cost 50horsepower to make 100horsepower,the parasitical drag is enormous compared to a turbo system. Personally l feel superchargers wear out motors much faster then turbos providing the same boost.This is widely believed by some,denied by others and proven by many. There is a really good reason Supercharger kits are not as popular for Porsches as turbo conversions.
Having said all that, one day if given the right opportunities l`d love to build up a supercharged 3.2L Carrera or 964, the technology has improved quite a bit since the early days..
