go look on the web for the kb it says the sound is also due to the billet also. That is really good.
If you think about this from a simplistic standpoint, it does not make much sense; just because somebody said it on 'the web' does not make it real.

In terms of your original question, my best advice would be to research and understand the physics of what each forced induction technique does and how the system accomplishes 'it'; once you understand each, then you can take internet opinions with a grain of salt, rather than taking others' opinions as scripture.

That being said, centrifugal or turbo with liquid aftercooling :boobs:

Kenne Bell doesn't need to make power.... The second the car screams, panties drop within a 1/4 Mile Radius! :) Hopefully my next venture will have a Twin Screw. But its either a Centrifugal or Turbo since the Blower I want is one of the rarest parts on the planet haha.

600 hp Cobra screaming!!! (Kenne Bell supercharger) - YouTube
BFD. I can take out my power steering fluid and my car will sound like that.

I personally do not like the scream from the KBs. The original 1.5L KBs although tiny didn't scream like the newer ones. Hell even the first Blowzilla 2.2L did not scream as much either. They were more stealthy which I liked. They had a mean hiss and almost sounded like a vacuum leak. I had one back in the early 90s. Fun street supercharger but they still had some heat soak issue but not nearly as much as the new generation ones. In fact at full tilt, they still had less heat issues than the Blowzillas just didn't have the capacity to support much more than 375 to 400rwhp.

I would a run a fairly big turbo depending on your ultimate goal of peak HP and run bottle to help spool on the street. I did it with my itty bitty 1.7L Rabbit w/TO4 turbo with 40hp shot. The bottle would last forever. Without it, it had quite the lag unless I modulated the clutch and gas right it wasn't oh so quick.
