If you are thinking about a supercharger, talk to Bob at EPP. Procharger is one of the best S/C's available IMO. On a stock motor, you can safely run around 8 PSI...assuming you get it tuned properly. At minimal, I would build the bottom end of your car; pistons and connecting rods. The crank is pretty stout, as is the transmission already. Like others have said also, your 10-bolt WILL eventually break with any kind of increased horsepower numbers, especially if you get some traction to the ground. I have taken the opposite route and have built my drive-train and suspension prior to adding any BIG power adders. LCA's, SFC's and a torque arm are also a good idea.It's stock.

ok, well i have aftermarket lower control arms, adjustable panhard bar, and strut tower bar.. i have full length welded in subframe connectors, and the car is lowered.. i really dont know what else to add to suspension other then a 12 bolt..?? so i can have my 5.3L heads ported and milled and make more power then porting and mill stock heads? how much bigger of a cam are you talking about?

The size of your cam all depends on what you want to achieve. If this is a daily driver, you probably don't want to get too radical and maybe go with something like a pretty mild cam at 230/232 604/604 113+1 LSA that is still very streetable. On the opposite end, you can go more radical and get something like a Magic Stick V3: 237/242, .603"/.609", 113 LSA. Your best bet is to call Texas Speed or CompCam and tell them what you are looking to achieve. I believe they both do custom cams. Also, what clutch are you running?

I say Monster clutch Stage 3, it's not an on/off switch! Makes for a good street car.
