I measured the pulley on my Vortech supercharger and it measures about 3.75" in diameter. I looked on their website and it must be the 3.80. That pulley is giving me about 6psi of boost right now. I want to up it just a little for some more power. I'm thinking 7-8 psi. Any tips on which pulley I should pick? Also, is a 1-2 psi boost going to be noticeable? Thank you for any and all help.

I doubt 1-2 would be noticeable...when I changed mine from 6 to 12 I was like "wow", now that is what I always wanted the car to feel like...with a good tune it should be fine.

If you can't find a smaller supercharger pulley then you could swap out the crank pulley. Make sure your fuel is up to snuff and Yes you will notice 2 lbs of boost cause 2 lbs is 2 lbs no matter how you cut it.

I used to have a Nissan SE-R with a DET swap and on those very cold mornings it would pick up over a lb of boost and you could feel that she was running harder than those other days without it.
