If you consider throwing money at your engine as a gain go for it....but it is BS...take a hard look at real centrifugal superchargers..those are REAL compressor wheels....look at rb innovations "compressor" wheel...looks nothing alike..

Turbine wheel to the right is created to catch the exhaust to spin compressor wheel to the left. And has no capabilityof creating boost pressure....just because it can move air doesn't mean it will "make" boost... a compressor wheel at correct tolerance to a compressor housing compresses the air to make boost...that rc supercharger is a glorified fan that just moves air

this is their "compressor" wheel....not even close!

Picture for pure exaggerated effect...this is out of a push style leaf blower

🤦‍♂️ I was talking in general..obviously they don't work on 2 strokes. Only 2 stroke i know of that just had a "blower" to help bring air in was a detroit diesel.
And it had valves also like a fourstroke engine. Than you mess with people and tell them 8v92 engine has not only a supercharger but also a turbo and valves but is a 2 stroke.

I’ll throw a wrench in.
snowmobiles run turbos on two strokes. They work, but they are fuel injected. So can compensate for the extra wasted fuel. Lol.
It’s a bad idea with a two stroke. Not reliable power in these little power plants.
This is rite up there with boost bottles. Lol.
