Question on a supercharger

Hi, Im new to the forums but ive been browsing it for awhile, finally made a account to ask a few questions. I have a bone stock 4.0L in my 93 YJ. I want to supercharge it because it lacks the power that I want and will need in the future(mudding and trailing). I want to run around 5-7psi and was wondering what motor mods I need to do to make this run stable without cracking a piston or blowing a head gasket. I plan on making a pvc pipe snorkel because im 16 and cant afford one(I know the supercharger and other things will cost a lot) and I know how to make a simple working snorkel. Thanks for helping me in advance.

-Jake

Confused on how you'll even mount a supercharger...... I'm gonna go ahead and say, not gonna happen. You're gonna break the crank.

Do a 4.7 stroker. Easier, cheaper, and you won't be chunking rods through the block. You will have plenty of power
