Nothing to be confused about here guys. A turbo works on your exhaust and is more efficient etc etc. Doesnt take power to make power blah blah blah. Blower/supercharger blah blah blah both names for the same thing force air into the upper intake running off the belt system itself taking power to make power. Some people..are stupid. excuse the blahs..been drinking....just ate some cereal...and missed a few times...:p

root and screw are just the way that the two metal devices with in a Positive displacement supercharger look and work... they just look and work a little differently look on kennebell and whipple industries for pictures and explanations...

one uses screw the other roots... ill leave it up to you to discover which one ;)

blower is a twinscrew s/c
centrifugal is another type of s/c
then turbo is another power added that is exhaust gas-driven

Kenne Bells and Whipples are both twin screws. A better comparison is an Eaton and Kenne Bell.
