is there an aftermarket company that produces super-charger kits for diesels?

Have not seen a supercharger on a diesel in a very long time. What is your issue with turbos? Building a puller or something?

why in the world would you wanna but a super charger on a diesel......?????
Ummm that's where the 671 started it's life... on a diesel.

Instant boost (depending on what type of supercharger) It would compleatly eliminate any turbo lag. I have seen a pic of a Whipple twin screw compressor on a cummins once but was never able to get any info on it. But IMO that would be one sweet set up. You would be able to get 80-90+% of the supercharger boost as soon as you hit the throttle nomatter what RPM your at.

The right twins setup will get you the same thing. A supercharger would be expensive and pointless (IMO)....let's see, you'd need bypasses, clutches, a whole lot of extra tubing, etc :$:

But even with the right twins you would not be able to ger the same kind of boost @ idle that a supercharger would get. The roots & twin screw compressor have instant boost even at idle. Im not saying it wouldnt be expensive. But It sure would be cool!

there is a 12v that was in diesel power with a supercharger and turbo setup in an S10

still with a super charger on a diesel and especially a modern diesel... you won't get the right kind of dense air you are needing....

How is that? A turbo and supercharger do the same thing (compress & force air in to the motor) They just use diffrent methods to run them.

i guess I'm a bit more advanced for you...... try reading a book you might learn something....
LOL! It's easy to tell when someone paints themselves into a corner. What books would you recommend? Something on thermal dynamics or perhaps the incompleteness theorem.... I’ll get to those after I figure out the difference between old and modern diesels. I mean I know the injection system changed to common rail with multiple injection pulses and all that jazz. But I can’t wrap my head around how they require different air densities. Because everybody but me knows that 15psi of boost from a supper charger is WAY different than 15psi from a turbo…

but using a turbo is safer than running a super charger for many reasons...
Sense... still waiting for it.

Ok how is it safer?

They will both compress the air, and at a certain RPM or passing the efficiency rating will heat soak. Density of air has to do with intake temp, supercharger or turbo temp and the efficiency of the heat exchanger being used in the application.

How did that statment not make any sence? It is a true and simple statment. Never mind you edited your post sorry.
