    Well, they really don't, that's what supercharges are basically made for, to have the same purpose as a turbo, but prevent turbo lag..
    I honestly don't see what the problems you would have with it. Compound/Twin chargers are extremely practical and reliable if tuned and configured correctly.

    Centrifugal superchargers don't prevent lag, they have step up gearing and provide little to no power down low. Now a positive displacement supercharger does provide low end power. They being belt driven doesn't mean that a centrifugal supercharger has a linear power delivery.

    Turbo with supporting mods and tranny to hold power.
    Do a sequential twin turbo setup after building the motor, tranny, ect and be done with it.... Better than anything I have read mentioned so far.....
