twin screw superchargers have no lag, but centrifugals do.. a centrifugal is more like a belt driven trubocharger.. centrifugal has more parasitic loss than a twin screw, but a turbocharger has no parasitic loss

single turbocharger FTW

Another challenge with boosting a engine is...... knowing what your compression ratio is and how much boost you can do before posibly needing to change headgasket designs and need stronger headbolts.
