question?

Ok I have an l99 at first I was thinking about stroking my motor out to a 416 and forging the internals and then adding a supercharger. No I'm debating on getting a supercharger and forge the internals as I go. Which sounds like a better idea to you guys. And what type of supercharger do you guys recomend.

Your process depends on your $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$.

The L99 and LS3 are not built specifically for boost from the factory. In theory, you should build your motor for boost first.

That being said, many people, including myself, have a supercharger on a stock motor. No issue with that, as long as tune and support the fuel system accordingly.

However, I built my car fully assuming that it is not a question of will I replace my motor, but when.

As for brands, this question is asked daily. For PDs, Maggies and Whipples usually top the list. For Centris, its usually Vortech and Prochager.

the type of supercharger depends on your HP goals and how you intend to use your car. however look up the price to stroke and forge your motor and the price of a new forged 416ci motor. you'll find the price difference is not that bad. Then if you want you can part out or just sell your factory motor to recoup some money.

or

you could slap the supercharger on there now and just save money for a forged motor. That way if something breaks you have a backup plan. Thats the most important thing, Always have a back up plan....

Go turbo and dont look back!.You can start off with mild HP and then after you build your motor you can turn up the boost and really let it eat.
I am a little bias though.LOL

What all needs to be forged in a motor to make it truelly reliable. I know the rods and pistons is there anything else.
