Default Boss 302 or ssupercharger

I currently have 2012 GT with a CAI and tune. I'm considering putting a supercharger next. Is it safe to put a supercharger on the coyote engines with the stock bottom end?
My other idea was to trade my car for a boss and use my supercharger money for a down payment and then supercharge the boss later. I know the bottom end of the boss is stronger.
Any input is greatly appreciated!
Thanks!

IIRC the stock coyote block is good for....700????
will need a double check on that.

Boss 302 is a very nice car, remember the "forged" rods on it arent true forged rods, they may take more punishment but wont take whatever you can throw at it.
Could forge the 5.0 at a compression that is good for na and SC, then save up for the SC

Boss is supposed to be a pleasure to drive - a well balanced car. I think that on a track it will run away from the Shelby because the Boss handles so much better. I have heard that the Boss will run with the BMW M3 which sets the bar for cars, but its $20 K less expensive.

Remove sidepipe baffles and put on a set of Borla S-type axle backs are catback.

Make it sound mean. If you go one step more like I did and put headers and a midpipe on it youll scare women and children.

1st mod is to replace the stock shifter with an mgw! Then lower that beast!

I've seen that it only takes about 5 minutes to remove the baffles. Is a tune recommended or required for this?

No you dont need a tune to remove them. Just unbolt the sidepipes at the rocker and at the h-pipe and slip the baffles off the studs. When you put the pipes back on be sure they dont touch the pinchweld or the rattle from them will drive you nuts.

The baffles have about a 5/16" hole in them vs a 1.5" pipe. youll notice a big difference.

I 100% agree. MGW shifters are the best.

You live in Georgia, where they are, and if you go to mgw and buy the shifter from them they will install it for you for free, so long as they are not really busy...
