Certainly--you have the first:

Superchargers are in sync with the engine--as RPMs build so does the pressure. This has several benefits: smoother power delivery, easier on transmission (as there isn't a sudden surge in power), etc.
Heat is probably the biggest one though--overall, turbos create a lot of heat in the engine compartment. Much more than superchargers in my experience and understanding of their workings.
I will check out RUF--I believe you on the price
Thanks for the quick responses everyone!
