I know this has probably been said many times.. I have a 2008 chevy cobalt LT sedan 2.2 ecotec. Very little mods.. kn air intake and 2.5in exhaust with flowmasters. Wounded veteran wanting some hobbies.. would I need to beef internals for just a bolt on supercharger? Or would it be better just getting some new cams. Headers and a good tune.. all inputs are appreciated.. also maybe a lists of parts you think I should add

You can supercharge on stock internals, but with an 08 you don't want to too small of a pulley.

Would it hurt to get new cams and headers and all that good stuff?

A header* (there is only one) is always a good idea with a supercharger. Cams will obviously require more effort when it comes to tuning the car, but assuming they're the right grind, they will only produce more power than if you kept the stock cams.

Like @rrob5382 mentioned, yours being an '08, it has the weaker block, so don't go crazy small with the pulley.

There are plenty of different sizes, I wouldn't really recommend going below a 3.1 though to be on the safe side
