You have some great skills and knowledge to be throwing superchargers on everything you own. Good job!

Not everyone can live in that world, but anyways...
If it ain’t pushing 500 naturally aspirated, high compression horsepower, I cover my giggling facial expression in your direction.😂🙊

Depends upon goals.

Aside from shooting myself in my foot, I'm mostly enjoying my 6.0L NV4500 FJ55. Gets the hell out of its own way :p

I didn't feel it was enough power so piggy number 2 is getting turbo 5.3L. The turbo should handle the issue of over power on parts... ie "soft" power. Waiting on cash/shop time on this :(

I went with a completely off the wall swap for piggy number 3: 472 big block Cady. 'Old' diesel like power(ie off idle, 210hp/380ft-lbs) in 625lb package(50lbs more than iron block LSx). Actually fits between the rails nicely. Only issue is 40 years out of production :( Still screwing around with this project :(
Those old caddy engines are awesome there is a 500 on Craigslist here in Colorado.
