    Cam and Heads or SC first?

    I am looking to put a supercharger in. however I don't know if I should do the cam and heads first. I am not looking to have serious boost maybe 6psi. Any help would be appreciated.

    You don't need a cam and heads to hit 6#. Just do the blower. Headers would be a great mod with a blower.

    6 lbs isn't serious boost, but serious boost could be just a pulley swap away. It's addictive, so I'd get the supporting mods first.

    already have headers + ory, 4.10's, lid, smooth bellow. How much hp gain would I see with 6 lbs. what is the highest you would go without heads and cam?

    With a perfect tune , your stock bottom end should stay happy as long as you keep it under 500 rwhp . 8-9 #'s should net you all the power you will want , for a little while anyway
