He probably put that there so people looking up supercharger would find the turbo. But, yeah, that's a little wack.

Man! I want a supercharger for my 1.8T

Anyhow there is one guy from Boston I believe, with an A4 who has a Paxton charger on his 1.8t..um 1.8s..i guess. And PES had a 1.8S passat a while ago...

"The numbers on the turbo charger are 5304 101 5089"

Well, seeing how a turbocharger is, in technical terms, a specific style of a supercharger, then it's not "technically" incorrect.

That's correct. A turbo is actually a turbine driven supercharger.

Essentially.
Cut the guy some slack. At least he got the car it came off of right.

If I knew about this sooner, I'd 'a bought it....then sold if cheap for a profit, then bought a DP. It'd be like I got the DP for free when u think about it
