if you are looking into a positive displacment blower (eaton, saleen, whipple, kenne bell etc) then you dont have to worry about a pi intake manifold because the intake manifold is incorperated into those blowers. might be the best of both worlds.

plenty of people do this, im getting ready to do the pi swap very soon. the only problem with supercharging a pi swaped motor is:
1. your compression will go up after the swap, so you wont be able to run alot of boost
2. if your car is old enough to do a pi swap on, chances are the motor has quite a few miles on it and a supercharger will just increase your chances of pre-mature engine failure.

if i was going to throw money into a motor with something like a supercharger, i would go ahead and do the full engine build with forged internals and ported heads and whatnot. thats why im only doing the head and intake swap, then im stopping from there.

out of the mustang game, got me a lightning

i might just invest in the supercharger or pi swap for now im not sure ..
if something did happen to my mustang would i be able to move the supercharger to a diffrent car?
my car has 101k on it btw
hmm i think i might just invest in some springs, gears, etc, along with the pi swap before i mess with a supercharger

sorry for adding a question to your question but i think it might answer both our questions

i need to rebuild my engine on my 97 GT and was just thinking about buying an engine block and building my own PI engine and put a a Supercharger on it.

any suggestions on a block/internals?
