Default 600rwhp with lsa blower?

can get a complete lsa supercharger for $2200 and a set of ported ls9 heads. What else do you guys think it would take to reach 600rwhp? Or is it possible with this blower

Yes, but... I think you will need a cam to get to 600rwhp (ls9 is cheap and plentiful) I wouldn't go with L9 Heads the the valves can wear the guides. On-line you can buy stock ZL1/CTSV castings for $376each and then spend the extra money on quality valves and springs. $228 for new hollow LS3 valves. $230 for Manley extreme duty exhaust valves and $229 for BTR .660 lift springs and then you can grow down the road. A good set of heads for boost $1440. GM CNC's LS3 heads are cheaper if aren't going to get crazy down the road with boost.

For what it's worth I run LS9's with stock valves and guides without issue. I've heard some concerns on the web, but I run 7k+ a lot and actually just had the heads apart to do a little hand porting and everything looked great.

Given the choice, I would stay away from the LS3 for boost due to the thinner deck, but I also run 22-25psi with a 4 bolt head.

Since you already have the LS9's I'd say run them, or if you're worried about it, throw some bronze guides in there and run them.
