Right, we know roots won't work because of the cooling holes, bolt holes and intake port doesn't match up. But I think that the CSC option is cheaper than turbo, right?

CSC is probably a cheaper option. I know Burg is considering this with his 95 SE

If I had bottomless pockets I would mack out the Rora with a turbo or something...but thats for another day

I'm thinking not. If you take a look at the latest article in Techinfo, Specifications, and scan the list, you'll see evidence that the motor/trans mounts changed several times in unpredictable years.

Yes. Centrifugal is essentially an engine driven turbo, like a big squirrel cage fan.. Paxton used to make one. Mostly seen on Studebakers. Must be rather large diameter since turns much slower than an exhaust-driven turbo.

Roots-type as onna 6-71 Detroit Diesel and is a gear like a real long oil pump. Long and thin rather than short and fat. And then there was the Latham Axial Flow Supercharger.
