What Supercharger is this?
Let me know what you think it is.

My guess is a rotax racing 9 lb 127mm wheel without the spacer, but hard to tell with the front housing still on.

It shouldn't be to hard, there is no oil hole on the shaft. Come on guys where are my experts?

I'd say it's an older RXP rear housing (04 red housing leftover seadoo painted black when they upgraded shaft kits in 06) machined to accept a 137mm impeller.
Then either an X charger upgrade or stock X impeller with front housing machined as well.
Neither housing front or back is an OEM X housing.
The impeller is cast aluminum so that excludes ET wheels and Seadoo Centre wheels as they are billet.
The impeller is either OEM Seadoo, Rotax Racing, Riva(Vortech) or Rude

This is what the seller's add said.
"This is a complete X supercharger with a upgrade wheel. The front housing and the 137mm wheel was install new and a new rebuild kit with gold washer. The boost is 12.0 lbs at 8100rpms."

If the housings accept a 137mm wheel it basically is classified as an X charger (short hand)
If it makes 12 lbs at 8100 I'd say Rotax Racing or Riva 1st Gen 137
I don't think you have been cheated in any way just the specifics were left out.
If it makes you feel any better I just purchased an X charger with a bearing failure to salvage the rear housing and parts off the shaft. (everything is damaged so I'm just SOL)
