Supercharger Boost

I understand that one of the benefits of a turbo is that you can adjust the boost, so how does this work with a supercharger? Do you need a tune everytime you want to add boost? And if I am looking towards the IPF Supercharger, how much boost can I run with all stock parts except for a Spec stage 1 clutch good for 350 ft/lbs?

Since you have an LLT, the problem won't be you running out of boost, it'll be you running out of fuel. To change the boost on a supercharger you adjust the supercharger pulley. The pulley the ipf kit comes with should be good enough to supply enough boost to the threshold of fuel available

So how much boost do you think I will be able to run with the stock fuel pump?

The IPF kit is supposed to hit 9psi of boost at 7,100 - 7,200 rpms (tune allows it to rev just a bit higher than stock), so yes that is pretty close to the limit I'd say.

Unless of course you are running a Procharger i-1...

Their video even features a Camaro.... (just not a v6...)

If you change the pulley you might have to change the belt? The belt provided is a tight fit from the go. Just something to think about
