Default supercharging the good ol' xj6

i have a paxton SN-93 supercharge sitting around. i have a 1990 xj6 soverign. i was wondering if the inline 6 4.0 can handle any type of boost stock? not looking for a race car. But the extra "bling" form the intercooler and supercharger would surely get me more awards at shows. Cars 100% stock. just looking for somethign to turn heads rather then "oh, just another jag".

That's the most excitement I've ever seen out of you Jose! Will it really blow with just 5 lbs, intercooled?

According to Jose and Ken, it can't! I'm finding it a little hard to believe!
