As long as it is safely tuned and you don't go maxing it out, you should be fine. There are several centri blown 4.6s running around putting down 360-400 and living just fine. Then again, there are others that have let go. It's all in the tune. Just make sure your tuner gives you a nice, conservative tune that still puts down enough power to be grin-inducing.

I've run my Vortech for 2+ years now on the stock longblock at 14lbs and made 50+ passes at the track with no problems whatsoever....go to a reputable shop for a custom dyno tune with SCT software and an Xcall tuner, should run you around 400-500 bucks depending on the shop

My car is tuned very conservatively (as you can see by my numbers) but that is what I wanted. I have had my blower on since Nov. 2003 and for about 70,000 miles.
