Can you put a blower on a rotary?

Do they make any practical superchargers for rotaries? I think it would pwn on a rotary, talk about acceleration =)

Mazdatrix did this. They put a Supercharger on a 3 rotor and got it to run low 10's. That thing sounded crazy *** hell.
They are selling the car by the way.

Atkins sells the camden 'charger kit mentioned earlier. It doesn't provide a large boost in top end, but adds lots of low-mid range torque. So its great for a street/auto-x car, but not so much for a track car.

A modern screw-type blower is a great idea. Roots is idiotic. A little research on the efficiencies of both will explain why.

(also, shouldn't this be in the performance section of the forum?)

Plenty practical, just leaving 10-15% of their HP on the table with a roots setup as opposed to a lysholm style screwcharger.

if you're going centrifugal, you might as well go turbo.
