The strength is in that honey comb a long with cooling though.
Here’s what makes the newer blowers stronger. See in this 2015 to 2017 design the wide open shared chamber area between the valve ports and the SC case body?

Now see up in the port of this 2018+ blower the added runner that goes from the bottom of the blower to just under the cooling bricks? It is between every port like this on newer blowers. It adds A ton of rigidity and strength to the case to help keep it from flexing out of shape and causing the case to squeeze down on the rotors spinning inside it with only a .003-.004” gap (cold) between the rotors and the case. These “ribs” can be seen in the Forsa video which was on Speedy’s recent SC thread. I’ll post a screen shot of it in next post

This right here about a minute into the video, Seeing this prompted me to bring this topic up of the difference from older superchargers to the newer ones and why one of the reasons the newer ones last longer and possibly make a bit more power. See the “separators” between each port under where the cooling bricks go? Earlier blowers this area is wide open and the casting material very thin. And this is where the bolts are that hold the SC to the heads are, which is also helping to stabilize and hold the top of the V together.

So that explains the "intake change" that was made to 2018 and up superchargers and also caused them to see a bit more boost with same pulley size as previous models.

I was seeing 1.5+ more boost with my pulley combo on my 18. I saw 17 psi on a 2.85 in really good air and over 20 psi on a 2.65.

Just be sure you know it's a working example. The 2.7L I recently got, you couldn't tell anything was wrong with it from looking. It wasn't until I disassembled that I realized the factory pulley decoupler system had failed and the rear shaft retaining bolt had broken.
