A nice Eaton supercharger, probably the R2300 series. (ZR1 charger for those who don't know)
I love a supercharger because you have torque and power at all times, with only a small penalty. The supercharger whine is the best, and beats the sneeze of a turbo blowoff anyday!

That LOUD whine is what I hate most about the Roots type....it sounds like an electric car!

I might bolt on a blower after a couple years of production and all the kinks are worked out. I'm not feeling adventurous, especially with the L99 and who-knows-what kind of expense and experience needed to properly screw with the computer. Hell, just getting an OBD2 scanner will take a fat bite out of your wallet, and that's just basic diagnositcs. It's never as simple as bolt-on, no matter who says different. Modern cars are almost organisms, few systems are truly discrete, and parts are expensive, even from the junkyard.

Mild boost from a supercharger, mile enough that I do not require new heads. New valve springs and a cam, headers, cat backs, tune from a reputable shop........anything I'm missing? Not sure if the suspension mods coem first though cause the SS aleady has formidable stock power !

The new gen tvs eatons don't whine nearly as loud as the old ones. Listen to the ZR1 and the CTS-V.Guys that have swapped out the gen 4 for the gen 5 eaton on the cobalts have all said that they are much quieter. Also if you get the right sized turbo, you won't have any lag and you'll have much more power, better low end torque and higher peak hp.

Turbo
better gas mileage
i prefer the sound of turbo spool vs sc whine
and i think turbo lag is kinda cool, it's like they get you off the line and a couple second later you blow by.

Supercharger (eaton,KB,Whipple type).. typically more reliable and you can't beat the low end grunt ..

I completely agree.
The 2300 with the addition of long tube heades (kooks or american racing) will give yo all the power and SOUND you will ever need for the street.
