Tried to be nice and got yelled at. WTF

So i'm at the fuel station today when another synergy green ss pulled in. The guy maybe 18-19 came over and was looking at some of my mods and was telling me that he had just purchased the car yesterday and was loving it. We went over and looked at his car and immediately i noticed that it had
"supercharged 605hp" on the hood. I asked him about it and he said yeah the previous owner had supercharged it and that it had tons of power. Since i am in the market for a supercharger probably next year i wanted to see what he had. He wasnt sure what it was so we opened the hood and my jaw just about hit the ground. I took a picture and just had to post it on here.

Anyone see anything wrong with this supercharged engine?

Yeah thats right a pure stock ss. When i told the kid he got all pissed off and said that i was full of crap and just jealous his car was faster than mine. I told him good luck and walked away. Now i would be pissed if i found out i had gotten screwed but seriously your going to yell at the guy who pointed it out?

If he bought the car used from a dealer, they did a shitty detail job under the hood.

Also, if was actually 18-19, he was probably more mad at the fact that he just assumed the car had a supercharger (and maybe even paid more?), but just found out that it doesn't have one when you called it into question. Or, if he slapped those badges on there, maybe he was thinking he could dupe you into believing the car had one.

ROFLOL, yeah previous owner said "I put a supercharger in it". Next question should have been, "is it still in there."

So technically he is correct, the previous owner "had" put a supercharger in it. Just didn't mention he removed it. Had does not equal has.

No way! That is Epic.

If he is that naive, I bet he was taken on a roller coaster for the price too...

Buy seriously, don't be jealous of his invisible supercharger.

Well, obviously you can't see the "tornado" kit installed just before the throttle body..that adds 50hp.
And of course the "slick 50" in the engine which adds 25hp.

And you didn't see the K & N air filter which adds 15hp..and you didn't see the coolant water wetter which adds 10hp...that is 100hp right there.

Then the HP sticker...that is worth about 50hp. And the "chip"...that is another 30hp right there!

426+80+100 = 606hp. He was being humble by saying it only had 605hp.
