Default the German compressor may have been a Lysholm type unit, which Mercedes uses.

Lysholm compressors (superchargers) are more efficient, and they're apparently much better if you plan to run higher boost, such as 13+psi.

This website has some good explanations of centrifugal superchargers (Vortech, Paxton, etc), and positive displacement superchargers (roots type, Lysholm, etc):
