The 6.2's are weak just by themselves...it would be best starting over with a better foundation.

I like the idea, but aren't the 6.2's in there for reliability in the first place. Put a charger on it and it kind of defeats the purpose. I'll bet you can find someone to swap engines with.

Been told Merc will be super charging 6.2L. GM is going to discontinue the 496,Merc is right now trying to buy as many 496's as they can.When they run out, you'll see a stout 6.2L/charged.

That seems to be insider info on what's going to happen.
