Has anyone ever supercharged a cummins? Let me know if you've ever heard of such?

Yes about the lag, BUT, a supercherger puts an un-needed draw on the engine, and how often do you need that instant boost...

yea it spools wuicker but it maxes out quicker. a turbo can keep building boost. also, it is an unnecessary draw on the motor. im sure on that DMAX they are centrifugal chargers, which really are not the way to go. you can only make so much boost and it draws power from the motor. turbos make much more psi. and u get twins to eliminate lag. thats why a smaller one is first, so it can spool the bigger one and make a crap ton of boost. thats just my oppinion

Impractical only if the information about the actual facts are flawed. The Duramax in question has a centrifugal supercharger and a single GT4505 turbocharger. The supercharger is clutch actuated and disengaged over 15psi. This is a very practical solution for 600+hp in a daily driven application, the truck in question is daily driven @ 733hp. So I would bide my words if actual understanding of an idea escapes you.

I have never, ever heard of a clutch actuated supercharger, but if you could get one set -just- right it would be perfect!! kind of like mad maxes, flip switch that nobody can figure out how to disengage a supercharger....
