Hey guys just a few questions cause I've seem to have been confused by somebody or have confused myself with the order of things.

With a turbo, the boost comes from:
- the exhaust with goes through the (?) to the intercooler then to through turbo to the inlet?

With a I/C supercharger the boost comes from:
- the airbox, through the supercharger to the intercooler then to the inlet?
or is it
- the airbox through the intercooler, through the supercharger then to the inlet?

Was thinking about intercooling my S/C but need to think and plan how it will be IC and where to do work to help with it, or even if i need to move the supercharger elsewhere (top of engine to side to aid in intercooling)
