CAI+CAM+IPF Supercharger

I have a 1LS Camaro and I plan on getting the 3 above installed in my car.... A friend of mine told me that all the added HP and Torque will end up blowing a gasket and that my axles also won't be able to handle it. Should I get forged internals first or do you think that I'll be able to handle all the extra ponies?

There are people running the supercharger kit or twin turbo kit with other bolt-ons without any drivetrain or powertrain issues. But you can't use a cold air intake with the forced induction kits because they have their own intake design that are included. So don't buy one ahead of time, lol.

I've only seen one person here successfully do the overseas Mace cams. Because of the lack of tuning support it didn't add much power in the end. I think it was around 20 whp. I don't even know if there is anyone who can tune for cams and forced induction together because I don't think it's been attempted.

If it were me, I'd pass on the cams and just grab the IPF kit. You can also grab a ported throttle body, ported intake manifold, intake manifold spacer, catless downpipes, an exhaust system and a throttle controller. If you don't want to run catless then leave the stock downpipes on. The high flow cats have been known to melt with a supercharger.
