^yep, procharger is made by ati. its a centrifugal supercharger that mounts like an alternator or any other accessory. a roots style is bolted right to the intake side of the head/s. kenne bell is a company famous for roots style blowers.

A Supercharger is the genaric name given to a belt driven device that forces compressed air into an engine.

Now you have 2 types:
Root Style, looks like a screw that bolts directly onto your intake manifold and is driven by a belt.

Centrifugal, Looks like a turbo only where the exhaust housing would be there is a pulley for the belt.

There are Pro's and Con's to both setups I am not going to go into that, you can search now that you know the types.

Companies that make Superchargers for the Focus are but not limited to:

Jackson Racing - Root Style
Powerworks - Root Style
Vortec - Centrifugal
Procharger - Centrifugal
