Supercharger on cammed engine?

I am starting to think about forced induction and I am looking at superchargers. My car is already cammed and I am trying to figure out if I would need to do a different cam if I go the sc route.

I am not sure the exact specs of the cam because I bought it like that but it is on the mild side, nothing crazy.

I am shooting for 580-600whp.

I already have CAI, cam, headers and exhaust. Is there a "best way" to get the hp I want without altering any of my current mods?

Well I am on a stock cam and have 574WHP. Really would need to know your cam profile to give you a good answer. It will add power for sure, if it's not a cam profile meant for a supercharger you just won't get the same power increase. see signature

Without cam specs, you're kind of shooting in the dark. If it's a mild NA cam, you can SC to a point, but if it's a max effort NA cam, you'll just be blowing the boost out of the exhaust. A good tuner with LS experience may be able to look at the tune and guestimate.
