Kompressor

Hi everyone,
Is the MB Kompressor engine a Miller-cycle engine or it just a simple Super charged engine?

The supercharger is called a Lysholm type which is similar to Eaton Roots but more efficient. Here's a link to explain. http://www.sportcompactcarweb.com/tech/0107scc_garage /
These are the specs from E55 AMG: Intake system Helical high-pressure supercharger with liquid-to-air intercooler and electromechanical clutch. 11.6 psi maximum boost.

Its a very, very good engine too in its latest incarnation. It is the most refined I have ever encountered.
