Roots style (sits on motor and often replaces intake) makes full boost typically at 1000 rpm and maintains that boost all the way to redline
Centri style (bolts to front of motor like alternator) is essentially a turbo. It makes no boost at idle and depending on your blow-off valve, the boost gradually ramps up. So low boost at low rpm, higher boost at higher rpm's.
They both have advantages.
Centri units are easier on the motor stress wise. But you end up driving at much higher RPMs to get more HP
Roots units make boost consistent across the power band. It's all or nothing. Also can be harder on the motor based on the boost bypass valve shutting and putting full boost pressure when instant before it wasn't seeing that boost
So you have to ask yourself. Self, how do I drive? Am I always wringing the RPMs out of the motor? Or do I prefer lower rpm but gobs of power?
I personally don't like high rpm runs. By the time you get to 6,000 rpm, it's essentially time to shut her down. So a roots blower is better for me because I can play at lower RPM. However, they are harder to install and again, can be slightly harder on motor.
If you like to hear that bad mofo sing, a centri blower is likely a better proposition. Easier on motor, better drive ability, and very easy to install.
Hope that helps some. I will always take a roots style over the centri units. But that's my driving style. However, price being right, I'd be a happy camper with a Centri.
