The supercharger used on all SC/XR7’s are manufactured by Eaton
Corporation. The specific style of supercharger is called a “roots style”. The
other very popular style of supercharger is called a “centrifugal” supercharger.
This is the type that resembles a turbocharger. The Eaton “roots style”
supercharger we use is labeled an M90. It displaces 90 cubic inches (1.5 liters)
and is rated to spin at a maximum rpm of 14,500. These are very durable
superchargers and have a life expectancy way in excess of 100,000 miles.
