    Advice please

    Hey guys, just looking for opinions. My wife is making me sell my T/A and I want to put forced induction or H/C on the GTO if I sell my bird. Turbo or S/C? Will I run into durability problems with the stock internals? I don't plan on using an excessive amount of boost, but what is the safe limit? Any input is apreciated.

    Bottom end of the LS2 should be good around 450....no issues long term...after that you may have a shorter rod bearing/bolt life....keep it tuned correctly will help a bunch.

    T/A is an auto. Plus, has 137,000 miles on it. I still may talk her into letting me keep it though.

    The tune you get with them ( MagnaCharger Kit) is fairly conservative so you should be good to go.
