With just the TB, CAI and catback, I think I would go with a cam that was ground for a blower (just make sure you know which type you want first), torque converter and headers first. I went this route so I could see what each part added to the equation. If you can afford to do it all at once, add the blower and call it done.

With just the blower would be somewhere around 475rwhp. With the additional items, you will be pretty close to 600rwhp depending on the cam and pulley choice.

With my LS3 I'm right around 650rwhp depending on the dyno. Ryne @ CMS did a great job on my cam/valve train upgrades and tuning. Jessika@SCC took care of the blower. Couldn't be happier.

I'm wondering though.
How are so many people putting down such huge HP numbers on stock bottom ends?
I want to be at 700 or so with restrictor plate and meth.
I am told this is very very easy with my current setup.
but I am worried about the rods and pistons and even the valves at that HP range. I know the crank should be fine.

Mine is a 2013 not sure if any improvements have been made internally this year.
I'm putting down 700+ thanks to Cunningham Motorsports(Thanks Rick ^^poster above). With your cam, you should've got hardened rods, piston & valve kit, at least I know I did. I could list my mods for an hour, but a good tuner knows exactly what they're doing, and I have the best, CMS.

Here's some good reading, that will answer many of your questions:

Yes all that would have been great but would have added 1000s to the cost of an already pricy upgrade as well as more downtime for the engine to get yanked and rebuilt.

I've read all that but there are many cars on here that are pushing way more than that hotrod article says is safe with no issues.
that is my question.

even that article says 650-700 is fine as well with minor considerations ( all of which have already been done to my car)

I'm at 560rwhp with just the tvs2300. Stock everything including exhaust and cats. Headers you'll need, too much restriction from the cats. Once i get those i should be around 600 to the wheels. Love it. Lots of power, but you can still handle it as long as tires are warm. Cold pzeros and it liked to get loose. No problems from the maggie. Good luck.
