500rwhp is pretty common (with a turbo and the right tune). it can be done with a sc as well but the sc puts more load on the block for any given hp level when compared to a turbo at the same level. there is a guy on turbomustangs that says he ran 612rwhp on the stock block for 3 years before he sold it......still in one piece

Why in Gods name would you choose a roots-style supercharger over a centrifugal or a twin screw?
