    how much boost can i run on stock bottom end?

    Hey guys, right now I'm running a vortech g-trim supercharger kit with 6 pounds of boost. It runs great, no problems. I just bought an intercooler that I'm going to plumb in. I'm thinking of bumping the boost up to 9lbs. Will my stock bottom end hold up with a good tune? Also, what is a good cam to run with the supercharger? thanks

    It depends on who you ask some say 8lbs and other will say 15lbs.. I have read alot on the net of some having 500-650hp on a stock LS1 and they all attribute it too the tune/tuner.. its a shot in the dark IMO you might be able to last awhile before something happens or you could be on the dyno and it pukes its guts out. Too be on the safe side I would go on up to 9lbs find the best proven tuner and let him do his thing, if the motor goes then you know it was time...lol as far as cams you can get a custom grind but the z06 cam specs are pretty damn good and can be found rather cheap...GL!

    Thanks for the info. I'm going to run 9 lbs and see how that goes. If the bottom end goes it just gives me a reason to get a stroker kit.
