Aston Martin Vantage from `95ish had a V8 with a supercharger on each bank. Would it be possible to twin supercharge our trucks? Just a thought !

Back in the day (around 1986 or so) when Koeing modified Ferrari's -- there was a 512TR (Testarosa) they did which I always thought was the best way to go. It had a supercharger for low rpm grunt, and a turbocharger to pick up where the supercharger ran out of flow. I also remember seeing a 70 chevelle with a 454 and a 6-71 blower, running twin turbos as well. That would have been a nice set up, even sans intercooler.

that was most likely due to boost lag, however modern turbo's really don't have this problem. the Bearings used nowadays are 100 times better and spin up quicker, even at low engine RPM's.

S/C tend to give more torque down low
Turbo's, the faster you spin them the more power you will make (tons more power at higher RPMS)

Reason being is that spinning a s/c at high RPM's takes considerable amount of power. It probably takes close to 100 hp to spin the Lightning s/c at Max RPM's with a 6# lower pulley.
