I think they ment mechanically driven centrifugal supercharger like Vortex or Paxton. They are larger and slower spinning then turbochargers (turbosuperchargers), therefore you can get away with injecting water/meth before the supercharger.
Also, I have to disagree with their statement, that methanol provides better cooling than water, as water has much higher latent heat. Advantage of methanol is that it is a fuel and brings energy into your combustion, versus water vapor displacing air/fuel mixture. Problem with injecting pure methanol is , that it has very different then gasoline combustion characteristics and it is very difficult to obtain proper A/F ratio of combined gasoline/methanol fuel. Aquamist recommends 50/50 mixture of methanol/water in their literature and they have been selling high end kits for longer then most.
