Kenne bell 2.6 on a 4.6l 3v

Buying a supercharger soon and basically narrowed it down to a kenne bell 2.6L. My concern is tho, is that it's min boost is 9 on the intercooled setup producing 500 hp. . Is that too much boost on a stock bottom end. I also got frpp cams , 62 mm thottle body N msd ignition. I was told that with a good custom tune, that I should be ok.

I'd like anyone's opinion if I would be ok with this kit.

If you have a really good tune and don't redline it you should be just fine

Technically any boost is dangerous and 500hp is a lot. So if you can't afford to rebuild the engine if if blows or it's your daily driver I would say forge it because If not you're driving a time bomb.

I have a stock bottom end and am running 10psi rated at 550 and have been for almost a year. I give it a good beating when I drive. Still in one piece so far (knock on wood)

Great thanks guys for the help. This isn't my daily driver. It's only for weekends or evening cruises during the week. I've got 2 other cars me and the wife use for getting to work n such. Also I plan on getting a forged stroker kit next year

That's 500 at the flywheel. I believe the motor is good for around 450 or so to the wheels, so it should good but pushing it and there's always a risk with FI.

They said I should be fine with current mods and the blower at 9 psi with a custom tune. I just wanted some feedback from other people.

That's the plan. I'll go with an email tune after I install the kit. Then drive it to a local guy and get a real conservative tune. I might even get forged intervals this summer if I have the funds or if i do mess up the internals. Either way ill be probably be forging this winter or next spring , because I know I won't be content ( wife says I'm never content with anything for very long )
