Welp, being a Mustang owner it depends on how much power he tried to put down. It is well known in the Mustang community that anything over 450~460 to the wheels, on a stock block, you are now on borrowed time.

I have seen those procharger kits put out 500+ RWHP on a GT. So yeah, if your going for those big dyno numbers, on the stock block, well things can, and will in your nephews case, go boom.

It is unclear atm how much a stock LS3 can take. I asked this very question in the 600+RWHP supercharger thread, but did not really get a clear answer....

Most of it is tuning. LSx motors are strong, and can take a beating, but with poor tuning will take them out of the game quickly.

Thanks for the info, the car has 72000 miles on it and was pushing about 550hp. I guess my question should have been do you need any internal mods if you plan to use this system. Not real sure if I will do it though, 426 seems to be enough, especially since I drive a 2500 HD Duramax Crewcab 4 X 4 with 35" tires on it. Although I do have a Banks System on it and it did improve my mileage as advertised
