Rating Supercharger Kit Efficiency

A few months ago, I was asked by M3Post user 'per' to rate the efficiency of the different supercharger kits on the market. My first attempt was to simply calculate the ratio of GAIN/PSI (the ratio of whp gain vs. PSI boost). 'Per' quickly pointed out that I couldn't rate efficiency in that manner because my own results were included, and mine were skewed by my displacement increase. So, I came up with the same idea -- version-2: Efc = Gain / Displacement / Boost. The idea is to measure efficiency as a function of Gain, Displacement, and Boost.
