Unless your willing to pull the new motor down and rebuild it to be a proper blown short motor id do nothing at all, just bang the blower on and enjoy it untill it goes bang, and the lower you keep the boost the longer it will last.

Depends what specs the crate motor is a lot of these things come with forged internals now.
If only cruising it should be ok,but if you are up it its only a matter of time.
A mate of mine put a blower on a stock SBC and it only lasted a weekend.

$1800 - $2500 should get you a reasonable rotating kit
