Scared to super charge an engine with 100k+ miles on it

Re: Hmmfff? What shoulddd

You can supercharge a new engine and damage components if the air/fuel and tuning parameters aren't correct.

Yes there is a slight disadvantage with an engine with higher miles as the some parts have undergone typical wear, but improper tuning is the primary source for failure.

Do you think I should replace the main stuff that goes under typical wear and tear on it and charge it then? Id like to get pistons and new head gasket. I could compression test it to make sure everything is solid before i do it. Im going to have to. I'm trying to get a new job at this place making 1 grand a week and plus I'm living at home so it's very plausible.
