Wrong way around dude. The supercharger is used for low down grunt, as they have no lag. The turbo is for the top end. Nissan used this setup in their JDM March, and went rallying with it. The piping required for this set up is very complex, so the car became very front heavy. Not only that, but due to the amount of piping involved, they also had to remove the air con and power steering.

Often refered to as Twincharging. . . Miata guys do it big like that. . . ;D
