All turbo'd, to my knowledge...
I never said superchargers were superior, just different. And a supercharger will give you a flatter, more linear, torque curve (not necessarily higher) than a turbocharger. The dyno charts prove my point, the supercharger makes boost at a lower rpm and maintains a flat torque curve, the turbocharged chart makes more power but with a non-linear torque curve... It's not that hard to understand.
