9.5:1 compression is too much for a supercharger in my opinion. Best to shoot for around 8:1. You could probably run like 3 psi with 9.5:1 and then you'll blow your heads right through your hood.
So unless you plan on swapping heads or pistons to lower your compression to go with the supercharger, I would stick with your original mods to the motor.
