i think if a */c can add over 150hp after being installed, its a blower. and if its as huge as that 871 blower, then its definately a blower.

The 'Blower' in the pic above is a twin-screw roots supercharger. Just like ours.

i think that way too, more or less. while the 871 blower is still a supercharger, i would refer to it as a blower, rather than a supercharger, and would refer to the m90 as a supercharger rather than a blower.

But it'* a supercharger. They just call it that to make it sound cool. Any belt-driven forced induction application is both a blower and a supercharger. Supercharger is the proper term, blower is the slang.
