I went blower then cam. I'm not sure what way is the right way, but thats what I did. It's up to you, save up and do it all at once.

There is only one fact here that's not opinionated. If you're having a shop do the work, you're paying twice if you do the mods separate instead of all at the same time when it comes to labor. Albeit different amounts of labor for each mod but still the jobs overlap in that regard. Unless you plan to run a centri . Then, it doesn't really matter as much. In either case the cam specs going forward become the decision point. There are other options, such as adding headers and full exhaust system. I've seen some L99s get 40 WHP out of a complete system with a good tune. That will work with whatever you do going forward even on an engine swap you're still good . Just a thought.

That makes sense. I have LTHs alrdy, and it would most likely be a centri

You'll need two tunes no matter which you do first. Get it done all at once. The change will be more drastic......the shiteatin' grin will be bigger and last a little longer that way

well through Mr. Jannetty all tuning will be free but it seems best case scenario all at once, second place would be cam first then blower.

I had the same questions as you. Except im LS3. But after i priced out both i decided on the supercharger first. More horsepower out of the box for just a little bit more money. Ted is installing it on monday. Once that is paid off ill go back to him for the long tubes, tune and rough idle cam

Horsepower wise the supercharger is where it's at. You can always run more boost if you want more power. Other components will eventually limit what you can get out of it but its a stock longblock, so you'll be making reasonable power based on the limits of that component .

..not really objective. There is no set way to do it, and no one is right or wrong.

I did cam first for the sound improvement as well. The smirk you had going from stock to LTs ... its 100x better with a cam... and you get the power adder. It is also cheaper so it was a nice step up to work for the SC
