It looks rough on the outside, is that an original 1993 engine? If it is as it looks, supercharging that engine without a complete tear-down/re-build will kill it in no time.......You'd be better off build a 496 out of that engine for around the same cost as buying and bolting on a supercharger.

I agree if you're going to do that at least go through the whole thing with bearings and rings and so forth and put an
8-71 on it with 3-4 lbs of boost!!!!!

"you people"... LOL, just kidding.
If the internals have all been done recently then you have several options.....none of which I am qualified to recommend . I bought a boat 2 years ago with Prochargers and quickly removed them and built bigger cubic inch motors and sold the blowers. Good Luck with the project....post some reports as it comes along!!!

Default Compresion ratio?

When the engine was rebuilt last year what did you do? I can get you a bolt on kit and ship it directly to you and I will be on the phone if you have questions when installing it. We should start with your current engine specs so I can get you going the right direction.
