I've been doing a bit of research and found these, does anyone have any experience with turbo/super charging a 4.0L motor?

505 Perf. Turbo:

Avenger Supercharger:

For most applications of this nature I would normally build the motor with forged internals, yet none of these sites even mention it, is the 4.0L tough enough to stand up to boost?

I was talking to my neighbor about these the other day (he's a speedfreak) and I had the exact same concern. He said as long as you don't go crazy on the boost, you should be okay. But, like you said, neither company mentions it. Confused

Sounds like he and I would get along just fine Mr. Green

Not like I can do it next week, I'm going to wait until I'm out of my warranty period...another 30k miles, but just researching, I'd like to know more about the internals of the 4.0L and if they can stand up to that kind of abuse before I dump 4k into a forced induction system.

Plus, I just think it would be COOL to have a blown Jeep. But, that's just me.
