My favorite quote from their site:
"If every vehicle in this nation averaged just 2.7 more miles per gallon, we could eleminate our dependancy on mid east oil."

(please don't take me seriously)

There are no real roots superchargers like you are looking for. However the d16y8 intake manifold does fit on the d17 with mild porting so you could use that with some modding. Made by jackson racing

Yes, in Fuel Injection/E.F.I. vehicles, up to three Turbonator's have been installed by automotive enthusiasts that race their vehicles.

God there must be some stoopid people out there...

do you even know what a roots supercharger is? not only does this not apply to hondas whatsoever , its the oldest technology you can get in a supercharger. roots blowers are outdated and cant even be used on a honda. for our application , you want a centrifugal charger. thats all we can use out of the 3 there is.

roots chargers were designed for carbs yes. only 3 types of superchargers to my knoledge , roots , nothing more than fan blades pushing air , outdated and unefective really by todays standards. a twin screw charger(also known as lysholm i think it is) , ive never seen this technology on any honda but the K engines. this is the kind of charger a V8 would run , top fuel dragsters and such(intake mounted supercharger). for a honda it would replace the intake manifold completely and run off a belt as all SC do. last but certainly not least the centrifugal charger as i mentioned earlier. a simple explanation would be the compressor half of a turbo , but instead of a turbine spun by your exhaust , it runs off a belt.

i would get a self contained, reverse rotating, belt driven supercharger. all you do is add oil like you would on your car and change it out every now and then. it even has a dip stick, all you do is make a mounting bracket for it and go to autozone and find a longer belt that would reach to the charger....really simple from what i hear. they even have a universal sport compact kit! that is how simple this system is.

here it is http://www.procharger.com/tech.shtml

Actually now they have turbos lol but yes Roots Style superchargers aren't just for carbed cars at all. They are run on 03-04 SVT Cobras stock, new GT500's stock, the new Corvette ZR-1 stock, the 1st cobalt SS/ Saturn redline cars stock. All of these cars are newer and EFI.

Roots really aren't outdated, they have been out for a while, but aren't outdated. Centrifugal and Roots are both good S/C's they just have a different power delivery. One has more bottom end tq and the other comes on stronger at the top.

THey will work on a honda and do.
If they are so outdated why do top fuel dragsters use them for over 3000hp?

Top fuel dragsters use a screw type which build pressure inside the supercharger unlike roots but nice try though + they have a distinct sound like the kennybell and wippels and super pricey
