VW Related -- Turbo Charger Question

I don't know that any Corrados came with a turbo; they mostly came with a
unique supercharger that worked with two concentric elliptical walls
rotating to compress.  The car will run without it, but it's a very
expensive part to replace, very hard to fix, very finicky, and probably
very noisy when broken.
