Supercharger?

Ok, so i'm going to be building a 355 sbc soon.
Specifically I was looking at combo 78 here:
http://www.ryanscarpage.50megs.com/combos11.html

Now, this is already a lower compression 355.
Now mind you I have not done a lot of research on superchargers yet, but once this engine is built and in my car and I have money for it, I would LOVE to put a roots style supercharger on it.

Now I dont want to run alot of boost, maybe anywhere between 6-8psi or so.
My main questions are thus:
Which roots version supercharger would be good for a non-daily driven car that might see the track a few times?

Also, how is that cam for a supercharger? I believe you are supposed to downgrade the cam when you use one, but its not that big too begin with, maybe keep the 1.5 rockers?

And would I need a larger carb to make up forall the extra air i will be getting? If so, how big?

Are there any web pages that I can find alot of supercharger info? Ive found a few with snippets here and there, but id love to see a dedicated Supercharger page or something with lots of info.

Or, can someone suggest a book?

Thanks alot everyone
Steve
