Default Supercharger??

Just through reading through the forums I have come to learn that there use to be a supercharger option for the Bonne. So what does the supercharger do exactly? Does it work like a turbo? Are these hard to come by, because that would be sweet! I have a 95 SSE.

That explains why it'* not practical to do this to a car without one.

A Supercharger works similar in function to a Turbo, but does it in a different way. Instead of using exhaust gasses to propel the impellers (resulting in a lag of boost), the supercharger is belt driven off the engine, so it provides immediate boost off the line, resulting in GOBS of low-end torque. You can see it sitting on top of my engine in my signature pic.

thanks for the link! Good idea I didnt think too seriously about it. Wow, that is an insane difference in engine components. GM really should have made a more compatible SC for dealer add on potential.
