[QUOTE=Poodwaddle;520523]My understanding is that a supercharger allows a manufacturer to use a smaller engine (squeeze adequate HP from smaller engine) and thus improve MPG.

Another option is to make the gearing taller.

The cost/benefit is not even close. Superchargers are NOT cheap, plus swapping differentials....
