A kid I know is putting a vortec s/c on his bone stock 5.0 with flowtech headers,hpipe,and flows and says he'll be pushing 400+hp.I told him I wanna go all motor and he says there is too much work to get 400hp on just motor.He says he is gonna run 12psi,I am curious if a stock 5.0 with 165,000 miles will hold up?:headscratch:

Yeah it will should hold up fine. The guy who works on my car puts supercharger on engine with 100k+ miles all the time. As long as he doesnt kill it everywhere he goes he good.

Best thing on a stock bottom end would be to stay around 10 psi. More than that and you're stretching your luck.
You could get a 400hp N/A engine but it'd take some planning and proper part selection. Not necessarily more work, but compared to just bolting on 10-12 psi, of course. But it's very possible.
