yo. smaller pulley = more power. with smaller pulley, you will need a different belt, bigger injectors and a tune. A full bolt on mod list will allow you to get a lot more power efficiently. CAI, header, at least a 2.5" downpipe (catless if possible) and a full exhaust would be your bolt on list. Then you go into cooling mods, option B w/ dual pass endplate for your intake manifold and a bigger heat exchanger. Depending on how many miles are you your car, you might want to replace the supercharger coupler, especially when drop pulleys. Short throw shifter is an good mod too. What else do you want to know?

Not really. Lsj is a strong motor. I'd suggest checking your timing chain tension and make sure its still tight

Your engine is the lsj platform. Id be looking into mounts and torque dampeners as you will have a lot of wheel hop esoeciallt with more boost. The LSJ LOVES meth injection. All that along with what banker is saying could potentially get you a good power and speed ss. If you ever want more, you could swap the supercharger for a tvs, or go all out and swap for a turbo. The LSJ flows better than the LNF (the 2008 + turbo ss motor) and handles turbos beautifully. Your engine has the potential for 900hp when fully built just so you know.
