NO.
Forged is the way to go with forced induction. What are you planning for cr? Make sure the kit will work with the heads you want, deck hight, etc...

I think BigDog is right. The scat cast cranks are pretty good to 500 HP. But I think you'll be pushing, or exceeding that.

What crank would do the best ? and I'm torn on cams I'm not sure the way to go for the build I'm thinking I want to go with a mid sized cam and let the blower make most the power

What I do for the cam is either to pick a cam and build the engine based of of it. Or build the engine how you want it to perform and pick a cam that works with what you want.

I actually noticed that and I can get the -22 dish pistons for the same price I'm trying not to spend a ton but want good horsepower I found the kit for 850 block after machine work around 650 and 2500 for the 177 supercharger and I figure with about another 1500 I can pick up a good set of heads and cam

Try a corvette forum and searching for a diy. There should be a writeup on it somewhere.
