Out of curiosity, i assume a super charger keeps intake temps much lower than a turbo anyway, being that the compressor isn't next to anything red hot, is that logic correct?
Top work by the way!
Incorrect logic, proximity to a heat source has barely measurable impact.
The centrifugal compressor is significantly more efficient at compressing gas than lobed type type blowers so the compressed air is cooler from a turbo than a lobed supercharger.
