Any power adder places a high load on the crank, rods and pistons. You should use forged, high strength, low weight components. For a blower or turbo-charger you get more out of any given boost with higher cylinder volume (not swept volume) so you start with a lower compression to get higher hp with boost. 8:1 compression is a good average for a street blower application. With a blower it can be easy to get 1.5 hp per cubic inch at rpm where it won't destroy a well prepped engine (5000 - 5500). You can do the same with a turbo but the turbo has to be carefully matched to get maximum boost from idle to full rpm like the blower provides. Both systems need an engine built from the bottom up and well matched to get the power. It is not something I would recommend for a novice to attempt on his (her) own.
