Is this true? Of EVERY blower?
No, it comes from high boost levels or a narrow LSA cam

Is a blown 454 /TH400 automagic combination "streetable"? Would it "behave" at idle, or would it be a strain on one's nerves (and brakes) sitting at a stoplight?
It depends on your cam/compression combo
Quote:
What kind of stall speed would a guy need?
One that matches your cam
Quote:
I understand that lower CR is better ... what 8.5 max?
Depending on boost levels. I've heard propane can handle more compression but I've never ran propane.
Quote:
049/781 (113.0cc) heads as well. Would they be a better choice?
It depends what you want to do.
Quote:
Forged pistons would be a "for sure" requirement?
What is the intended use and boost level you're shooting for?
Quote:
What kind of camshaft would you use with a blower?
On the street a nitrous/blower profile with a wide LSA {112-114*}.
