    Question Too many miles?

    just curious how many miles are too many when it comes to supercharging?
    i have 115,xxx and eventually i will get to doing the forged bottom end. should i bother installing the vortech supercharger or just wait till i can do it all in one shot?

    Throw it on. You can make it last if you plan on runing 6-8# of boost. Lots of guys are running superchargers on high mile engines. Just don't be suprised when some thing breaks.

    If you have it throw it on. You don't want it to rot in the box do you?

    Either replace the internals now or if/when they break.

    if the rings are good and you don't spark knock you should be fine. i was running 14lbs on a 120k engine till it went lean and melted a piston.
