Eaton makes a four rotor as well that does not use blades. Whipple is a normal roots style with loose clearnce and larger rotors. Notice the size for output. They are much larger than normal roots.

Do the Eatons still come with 100k mile warranty?

Im a turbo guy but also like prochargers. Roots or whipples are also cool.

"whipple" is a brand, traditionally associated with "screw type" compressors. Almost all of the modern top mount superchargers are screw mount as they are generally more efficient than a simple gear type compressor.
