    Turbo and Supercharged?

    Probably sound stupid to most of you, but I really don't know much about the mechanics of...well anything, just wondering what the difference between Turbo and Supercharged are, if any.

    turbo gets driven by exhaust gases to make boost and the supercharger is mechanically driven by gears or a belt to make boost.
    On the seadoo the type of supercharger they use looks much the same as the front half of a turbo just with a gear driven shaft out the back.
    because the s/c is mechanically driven boost is available instantly
