I'm planning on getting a 454 LSx Stroker, and I was wondering if it was safe to install a supercharger on a new motor. I was planning on completely rebuilding my Camaro this winter (hopefully beginning soon if I buy this shop) and I was going to install pretty much everything all at the same time. I was wondering if it was better to break in the motor before i add the charger or if it mattered. I was planning on putting the Procharger D1SC kit on (I would prefer the F-1A kit though). I can still use the FAST LSx intake with this charger right?? and how much boost can I push with the D1 kit? Thanks I know it's a lot of questions.

You can boost a fresh motor. Just make sure you seat the rings properly.
Same method applies.
DO NOT baby a fresh motor.

tranny fluid helps the rings seat. smear a healthy amount on your cylinders right before you put head on.

I wouldnt even bother with a 8 rib set up...i would do a 10rib. ASP makes a 10 rib kit. you'll have some issues with belt slippage with an F1 and a 454 as some guys are experiancing that i know right now with an 8 rib setup.
+1 on jumping right to the F series...its a $300 differance if i remember correctly and you'll max that D1 in no time on that big of a motor.
as far as breakin in a motor...I was allways told you break in the motor the way its gonna be used the rest of its life, which means throw boost at it from jump after ofcourse a few heat cycles and leak check. but im sure like anything else in the world everyone's opinion varies on this theory so you'll have to read up and make up your own mind on what your gonna do.2000 WS.6 Trans am M6
