Me: Oh really? What kind of supercharger you got? Roots? Centrifugal?
Him: Errrrrrr ummmm, littlefield???
Me: Heh aaalright, well take it easy man, gotta go.
Him: (as I'm pulling away) Hey man, you should throw a turbo on that thing!
And roots vs centrifugal is a pretty stupid question when talking to vette guys. The vast majority run twin-screws.
