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.
Wow, that's even more impressive then!! I've actually ordered a pair of Spal fans to go under my stock 993 intercooler, i will be doing some tests soon to see whether they help reduce IAT. It was looking at this build that made me decide to experiment! People pay fortunes for better intercooling, if i can get my intake charge even within 25 degrees of ambient at WOT i'll be seriously happy
