8.5:1 comp Cobra engine with a centri blower?

So just how horrible would daily driving/part throttle be with 8.5 compression and a Procharger? I can get a factory fresh 03/04 Cobra short block built for 1000+ HP for $5000. Manley rods and pistons, but it was designed to keep the original compression ratio.

Is out-of-boost around-town driving and casual passing on the highway gonna be like "well damn, this sucks" or is it something that really isn't that big of a deal?

The P-1SC is going to be maxed out, so not really worried about it under boost. Shooting for 600-ish rwhp.

'03 Mach 1 5spd
Fully forged Manley rods/pistons, Cobra crank, ARP hardware, 8.5:1, Procharger P1SC w/ intercooler, AFM power pipe, 60# injectors, 03/04 Cobra tank with dual fuel pumps, Kenne Bell Boost-a-Pump, O/R X pipe and Flowmasters, Exedy stage 3 clutch, Steeda Tri-Ax, Front and rear upper + lower control arms, Ford Racing springs, Bob Monks tune 448 rwhp @ 9 PSI
