Superchargers work on gas engines, not on 4 stroke diesels. They did use them on Detroit 2 cycle diesels but for a slightly different purpose. Trust me, if it would work on a 4 stroke diesel, it'd already be done, there's a reason they don't use them. Also, it does take power to spin a supercharger. For example, to spin a supercharger on a top fuel car, it takes 400 hp just to spin the supercharger to produce 50 psi.
