Supercharged 5.8 F150?

I picked up a nice clean 95 F150 ext cab 4x4 pretty cheap. Runs and drives great and considering on using it to tow my EB (7k lbs trail ready on the trailer). I being used to the power of my Powerstroke, I came across a Powerdyne Supercharger for a good deal and thinking about putting it on the truck. Just not sure how well a blower holds up with towing. The truck will be on 33's with either 4.88's or if those are too much maybe go to 4.10s. I already have complete 4.88 axle's to swap in. Looking for some input on this
Thanks

How many miles on the truck now?

The added Hp and Tq will play havok with your shortblock and transmission if they aren't up to snuff...

The truck has 120k on it I did just pick up a nice Jet E4OD trans to swap in if this one take a dump. The motor doesn't smoke or use oil any oil. The kit says it is good for up to about 100hp IIRC

If you plan to use the truck for towing, I'd be concerned with the RPM that HP gain comes in at - you're more then likely not going to be pulling at the RPM that HP gain is at......
