supercharged 2002 gt

I have 373 gears, shorty headers, x pipe, 3 chamber flowmasters,stage 2 cams, stage 2 clutch, 75 mm throttle body, aluminum intake manifold, and a stage 2 short shifter. Stock cylinder heads and engine block. Can this car handle supercharger?

150,000. I'm just wondering if anything else needs to be swapped out before the change because I was reading up on it and swapping out certain parts was a must.

I also had the trans and heads rebuilt. Everything except the block itself has been redone.

Change spark plugs, and upgrade fuel pump and injectors. Might want to do a compression and leak down test too

+1

A compression test will tell you how well your cylinders are doing. If it all checks out, get a Vortech (kit or piece it together) and get a good dyno tune. With a good tune it'll be very reliable assuming you don't increase the PSI past 10.....lol

And at the same time I'd go ahead and replace the gaskets on the engine and upgrade to ARP hardware... That is if you don't just go ahead and do a rebuild.

Absolutely agree; if your gonna rebuild I would do those things as well. But sounds like the OP wants to know if his engine will handle boost as is. Thats where tune is key
