I am in the process of building my car and I want to run this thing on pump gas and push a max of maybe 12lbs of boost, from anyone's experience is a motor with 10-1 compression to high for a supercharger or should I play it safe and build it with 9.5-1.:confused: I do plan on running some high octane fuel if needed, but for the most part I want a 93 octane street beast. The engine is a 427 sbc with aluminum heads.
