LKQ Online is listing an aftermarket Jackson Racing Turbo removed from a 2000 Mazda Miata. This item is in good used working condition. It has some small cosmetic damage as shown in the pictures. It comes with our warranty and will make a great addition to your vehicle.

he's close:

A supercharger is an air compressor used for forced induction of an internal combustion engine .

When power comes from an exhaust gas turbine a supercharger is known as a turbosupercharger[1] - or more usually simply turbocharger - and common usage is to restrict the use of the term supercharger to mechanically driven units.

I read somewhere (I want to say Ultimate Boost, but ) that supercharger is short for super turbo charger.
