Superchargers require horsepower just to run where Turbos do not require HP to run. There is no need to add 2 superchargers which actually doubles the para-static HP drag on the motor effectively reducing the HP even more. You are not going to get any more HP or boost out of an X5 using 2 instead of 1 Supercharger. Actually I don't know of a single street car and not 1/4 miler that actually has more than one SC.
