Default Centrifugal?

Tell me if this idea is stupid or can't happen but is it possible to add a centrifugal supercharger into an SSEi (so an already */C engine)?

no reason to. you could upgrade your SC to a gen5, whipple or M112 if you wanted.

So what would the difference between adding a centri. SC and just changing your existing one be?

And so it can be done?

It can be done. ZZP used to sell (maybe they still do) the Novi 2000 kits.

So where would you put it? I was reading up on them and it pretty much said that you could pput them almost anywhere.
But why would a swap for a gen5 or m112 be more efficient?
