Default Interesting supercharger thoughts

Has anyone paid any attention to the new 3800 for the Grand Prix? They say that it has a larger exit port for the intake and that it now has powder coated screws for less friction. They say that the friction requires 18% less power to drive the */C, and that the new combo makes 260 hp. Now, on the series 2 3800'* will this supercharger be adaptable? If so, give me some ideas!!

I think we're talking about the rotors here. The rotors are proprietary, and only available through Eaton or Magnusson. Magnusson is licensed by Eaton, but neither company will sell you the rotors.

I'm not sure what powdercoating would do for the rotors, as they're already teflon coated, even on the Series I M62.

Moving this thread to forced induction........
