Pat Ganahl's book has a lot of good advice in it. I noticed the build #78 uses 8:75 compression, getting a bit high for a blower. The Car Craft article used an 8:25 motor, better, but I'd try to keep the compression even lower, maybe 8:1, that'll give you more room for increased boost if you ever got the urge....we all get the urge. Depending on what grade gas is available in your parts, consider a boost retard, nice to have that option.
