Yes it is a twin-screw. And that guy should be more than grateful for what he is given.

Better is debatable.
Twin screw chargers are internal compression and therefore have better thermal efficiency.
Roots chargers (Eaton) are external compression but (believe it or not) less sensitive about rotor to rotor alignment and timing. Roots are more tolerant of high rpms.

Soposedly it should fit but if it dosen't then theres always cradle spacers and cutting the hood support beams.
