Is the supercharger safe to go on a stock engine with 130,000kms? i want the 2.6 because i have plans for rebuilding. hence the big superchager i will be running the 9psi pully. so i don't go over the safe limit.

I can't say what miles 130,000kms is but it sounds like a lot and it would depend on how soon you are going to rebuild?? Running 9psi would be kinda of safe, thats what I beleive termies run stock but they have a lower compression to compensate. As for the IRS and solid axle depends on you a solid axle will give you better times on the 1/4 and an IRS will dominate the track. The swap is relatively easy only a couple of fabrications or mods im sure there is a thread about a IRS swap??

all ive heard about the IRS swap is that if youre going to be putting down lots of power... you need to worry about wheel hop, so i'd stick with the stocker

safe limit is 15psi :)
honestly if your going in thinking of a rebuild anyway, get that blower and try 13, i'll bet you'll be ok..tuning is key..

depending on the tune and power it will last a while mileage is not that big a deal, DON'T SWAP TO AN IRS irs breaks like hell drag racing, the stocker will hold more power than most give it credit for but the best swap you could do is a 9 inch or 31 spline, if you want handling seek it else were springs, sway bars, struts, control arms what ever.

turbo... you think 15 #s is ok? it might be for a lil while but thats quite a bit for that stock shortblock. Id rather go with heads/cams for the extra power that will be safe and more efficient than just go 15#'s right off the bat. Im a firm believer in these stock shortblocks being tougher than credit given but i also think that efficiently gaining the numbers will prolong the life.

I agree, dont go IRS even for the corners. Although it is a great system, it is easier and cheaper in most cases to build up you solit rear. I am runing the Steeda 5 link and it handles the corners amazing

The 2.6 would be out of its efficiency range by a tad... but damn im jealous :sorry i went with the 2.1 cause i didnt want to get a forged block... well that didn't last long when mine blew up lol!

15 psi is HUGE. You can make enough power to snap your stock rods with 9psi easy. I wouldn't go anywhere 15psi with a stock shortblock unless you really badly want to break it, or you are REALLY soft footed. But whats the point of the power if you can't use it?
