what to do b4 i get my s/c

just as the title says, what to do b4 i get my supercharger. i plan on getting the vortech and i was wondering what would be the best to do to the engine to get it ready for the s/c. i'm getting the focussport race header and flex pipe and thermal cat back so far. just wondering what else i should get in the way of cams, new head, pistons, etc. thanks

stage 1 cams, cam gears, low comp pistons, and forged rods. then talk to vortech about getting your boost up safely. lsd, new clutch, new flywheel would be nice too. larger injectors.
