build it first

or

slap it on, tune it safe, and start a built motor fund, cause its only a matter of time.


seriously though, if compression checks out, i really dont see the dangers.

Re: 158k motor hold forced induction?

but if you've got the buy ... go for the supercharger now (I mean buy it and don't install it) then put the money back and do a rebuild for boost.

I say.. a mild bit of boost.. (esp if intercooled) won't hurt your motor at all.. you will need to upgrade your injectors, fuel pump and get a tune but it shouldn't be much of an issue
