is it possible to blow a head gaskit on an 03 Cobra with a 2.80 pulley?

or maybe an exhaust manafold gaskit? has anyone ever had this happen?
I dont have any of these problems, but I thought I would ask as I had a motorcycle some time back that had nitrous on it and I blew a couple of head gaskits,

Now I come along and get a supercharged cobra and make even more boost with a pulley, throttle body, 95MM meter ect,ect.

I would just like to know how strong the head gaskits are on these things and at what point do they start to have problems?? thanks

Ive yet to hear of any gasket problems...from what ive been told, our stock bottom ends can hold a lot of power without any problems...it's just the supporting components that may not be able to handle it...all the one's ive seen w/ under 500rwhp have had mainly rearend (IRS) probs...

I have over 12000 miles on my kenne bell set up. I just change the oil and put gas in it and drive. There are guys getting 1000 hp out of stock internals and they aren't blowing head gaskets. Your motorcycle heads wern't built for boost but your cobra heads were. :)
