Default Re-bore and supercharge question

Ok I've come to two realisations this week.

1. The new camaro ss will have a 0-60 of 4.6
2. I can't afford a 2011 Mustang and keep my 08.

Because of this I've decided to extensivly mod my current gt to the point where peformance of my car will be much better than both.

My plan is to bore my engine to either 5.4 or 5.0 then supercharge it with a roushcharger but don't know if its possible so that's my 1st question is it possible to bore my engine then supercharge it.

My next question is how can I improve handling on the track only thing I know about this is shocks, coil overs and sway bars. What can I do to get the most out of my car handling wise?

get a livernois 298 stroker motor = roughly 5.0 liter. Put a supercharger up and turn the boost to whatver you want.

And im guessing you mean the new roushcharger tvs and not the old one?

you wont be stroking that motor to a 5.4. you can stroke the motor and supercharge it. but not from 281 to 323.

I reccomend a 298 stroker, or just forged internals with a power adder. I have full intentions on destorying those cars when they come out too

Ok sorry for the misterming I won't be doing a engine swap to much of a nudge on budget. My 1st mods will be to the handling cause I wanna be able to control my car around the corner with my foot still on the throttle I wanna finish the project by next summer with stroking and supercharging done probably last. I've also been doing some design on my pc for custom window louvers and and interior to make it really stick out.

Forged internals and boring the engine and all that is great but not need to out perform a new camaro. Just a basic 140+hp supercharger, basic suspension, and tires will out perform both cars...

Supercharged might be enough to out peform them stock but not when they are supercharged themsleves.

The new Camaros might have a lot more HP than our stock cars but they'll also probably weigh a lot more. Like ahddm said, though, when they start with the S/Cs we'll be screwed.
