Well I know for 99.99999% sure that the centrifigul sc is more efficient, but the twin screw might be able to pump out more boost.

TS isnt for high boost/rpm lvls.

Efficiency is relative to engine and supercharger displacement. They both have their benefits, do you want power now or later? (Low rpm torque/hp, or high rev hp/trq). TS is good for power you want NOW, centrifugal good for higher revving motors that you dont want to always be in boost.

I agree, Twin Screw is a better design.

a twin screw can develop over 25lbs of boost, depending on size and application...just like turbos...

i love the sound of twin screw chargers
