Default Wren could prolly answer this...

Apart of the obvious, what is the difference between a roots type SC and the other kind (not sure what its called)
Does one produce more boost? does one produce more power? Do they both spool up just as quick? and is Pro charger a SC or something different?

Sorry, but its been killing me lately. I was asked this at work and i couldnt answer it...now theyr making fun of me...darn co-workers.

All I know is that a Twin-screw is much more efficient and is a lot better at producing boost.

Also, they're very different in design...
Twin Screw


Roots

Think of a Centrifugal as a belt-driven Turbo.

Roush uses Eaton twin screw roots just like ours.

It'* actually an Eaton, the only Roush involved (not really roush, just carries the name) is the kit and mounting.

Roush'* Roots-style supercharger delivers six psi boost and delivers a sweet blower whine to match.

Hypthetical....

Say you had access to a to a machine shop that has the ability to mill out Roters to any spec.... Would it be benificial to make a roter swap to replace the root roters in our chargers with Twin Screw roters? or is the casing the wrong style also?

Remember that was only Hypthetical
