DDM to unveil new power adder options at Nationals?

I thought I'd post this over here, from Dave Michel on facebook. via Robotech:

The MP62 kit is coming back this year and will be at nationals in Colorado this year, FYI.

Lots of love this year for the Kappas
You now know as much as I do.

it is and its not, the roots styler supercharger is an outdated design by modern standards, just like carbs are compared to fuel injection. we dont pay money to put carbs on our cars do we? I'm not saying its terrible, I'm just saying.. there's newer technology out there that is way way better suited for our modern motors.

Lots of old engineering still works very well

A pencil for example.

My thanks to any company and especially DDM for continuing to bring products to market for our cars which are essentially a dicontinued platform and a ever deminishing market.

Some people have been waiting for years to have the SC kit available again

I use a fountain pen as weapon of choice every day - good nineteenth century technology. And easier on the environment - no used up ballpoint refills cluttering up the landscape, just the odd empty bottle of ink that is recyclable.

But then I prefer vinyl LPs to digital, so.....

guy's im not saying the mp62 kit is garbage. I'm just saying there are newer style blowers out there better suited to supercharging a small displacment motor, and that the roots style blower is simply a step backward. I think its great DDM and the others make stuff for our cars, and I'm not knocking them at all, and it seems you guys would rather just have a roots blower. Thats cool too. I'm just trying throwing it out there that there's better stuff.

Hence my copying part of Dave's FB post: "We will also be bringing another forced induction option for the 2.4L"

If he's bringing the MP62 back, and already offering the Rotrex, than what other kind of forced induction option does that leave? A 2.4, turbo kit? If so, what turbo would be a good match for the 2.4/LE5?
