Default supercharging my pi swapped stang

Okay so im looking to go blown so i have a couple question. Im not looking to buy brand new. I have found plenty of kits for around 2k. My mods are in my sig... So heres the questions:
1. since my compression is 10.5 to 1 what is the safe zone as far as boost goes. 6-8psi?
2. how risky is it to go f/i without forging?
3. how much power do you think i will be making?

you can make up to 450whp with a good tune before it breaks. 400-430whp is very reliable on a centrifugal blower. you can run 8-10lbs. the tune is the key to it bieng safe. just go to one of the big name tuners like mph, amazon, rwtd, speedy dyno, etc. and you should be fine

i don't know much about mod motors but that's a lot of compression for any boost. do you plan on using meth?

As I told you before, I did it with 8psi and running 10.5:1 compression
Meth or intercooler is a must! I used meth at the time, just make sure you tune it (or have someone tune it) that knows how to tune for meth injection should you go that route.

My tuner is big on it. Here is some info from his site.
