    I would think it would stand up to the elements, try and talk to someone on here with a supercharger.

    Running a supercharger is a much better option than a turbo charger for offroad applications. Instead of a turbo which gives you a lot of torque "instantaneously" (by that I mean starts really turning hard when the turbo spools) a supercharger distributes the power linearly given a smoother platform that allows more usable power on lower end.

    Getting a supercharger isnt the issue it where you route all the working for the supercharger. Keep the air filter high and dry and make sure your intercooler lines and such are out of harms way (if you choose to run an intercooler).
