It is possible. I've done it (kind of)
I have an Arrington 410 and a procharger. 601 whp on 9 pounds of boost. I guess that depending on your configuration you could go higher.
My setup is a 9.5 CR. So 10, maybe 11 pounds is pushing it. The 410 comes standard as an 11:1 CR. I drove around for over a year with just that 410, made 451 whp. It was very nice. I actually enjoyed that setup (without a supercharger) than my current one. This one makes so much power that she spins into 4th gear... A whole lotta power that you cant use at the track.
A word of advice. Your calculations as to the price of this build is way off. $3199 gets you the PARTS, not the shipping, labor, OR HEADS or a good CAM. the 410 is nothing without a good set of heads and a cam made for FI. Mine are PPP stage 2.5 (Dont ask, lol) and an Arrignton FI cam.
Add to that the price of supporting boltons (headers, catback, TB, Tq Conv, 1/2 shafts, LSD) and you have added a 5 or 6 K onto the price.
As for your choice of SMS... I second PD's comment, Vortech or Procharger. I wouldnt go anywhere else.
Good luck (If you're serious, you're gonna need it!)
