there is a supercharger on the engine

no seriously does your engine have a black upper intake, or is it a metallic color and have a pulley attached to the end of it??

Or like my sig pic, minus all the pretty stuff. If it'* an SSE built in 93, it'll say supercharged either on the trunk or on the doors. And like everyone has said, do you have the pulley on there? 2 belts on the engine, or just one?
