So for me I was hoping for a Z/28 500+ hp, and 11 second miles. It looks like the SS is capable of that with a supercharger and some work, but how long will the engine last, and how will it drive? I have no problems with modding a car and making it your own but I guess your right I am price biased and would rather have a car with the performance that I want from the factory with a warranty.
All great points and reasons to lean towards a factory built car. A buddy of mine had his C6 Corvette supercharged and the performance is amazing but it is not the best daily driver and needs lots of TLC, tunes etc which would drive me nuts.

As for the Prochargers, or any other system, you can only make as much power as the given LSX engine can handle. Typically the week spots are the rods and/or pistons.

Therefore, it doesn't matter if System A makes 500rwhp, System B makes 600rwhp, and System C makes 700rwhp if the engine can only safely handle 500rwhp. System A is all you need unless you are going to rebuild the engine.

Not sure what the boosted limit on the LS3 is, but I bet SAFE limits are up around 500rwhp.......
500 to the wheels or crank? because 500 to the carnk shouldnt be any harder than a few bolt ons. 500 to the wheels would be installing a supercharger, which will put crank power around 550.

how long the engine will last is always up to the driver. you can ask me and ill tell you forever, because i wont drive mine hard constantly . you may ask someone else and they will say 1 year because they will beat the crap out of it. remember who you are talking to when you ask questions of life expectancy.

i had a s/c trans am and never had a problem with it. ill be putting a s/c on my camaro next year. its very reliable power and i wouldnt doubt the install at all. on my trans am, i had it installed(vortech) and then tuned at livernois motorsports in dearborn hts ,MI. they did an amazing job. got my 420hp at the rear wheels and it drove just like it did before. except much faster. no bucking, no jerking, stauling, NOTHING. i will be putting a magnuson on my 2010 camaro ss.

You get more power by drawing in cooler air.

But the air under the hood is not always as cold as it is coming from outside.
