I'm pretty sure i'm going to get a SS Cobalt, yellow :) , but I was wondering if you can put up pipes and down pipes on them like you can on a turboed car?....sorry I don't know a lot about superchargers...also is there anything like a blow-off valve for a supercharger?

Some aftermarket centrifigal supercharger kits come with blow off valves, but the SS has the same roots blower as my Red Line, and there is really no need for a B.O.V on roots type supercharger. As far as the pipes, the throtle body, intake manifold, and air to water intercooler are all packed in close to, or are part of the supercharger. They are all on the front side of the Cobalt SS's engine so there is no pipes leading all over the place like on a turbo setup. If you want to learn more about superchargers, pick up the March issue of Sport Compact Car magazine, the first of a series of articles explaing how the different types of superchargers work is in there, or check out www.eaton.com since they make the supercharger thats on the Cobalt SS. ;)

The Supercharger runs off of the belts that the engine turns, not the exhaust. So there is no downpipe, or any pipe for that matter to change. There are however other mods to do. CAI for instance will give a good amount of power of a non SC car, also chaning the pulley size on the supercharger belt will turn up the PSI proportianlly to the size of the pulley.

300+ at the flywheel will be attainable but 300+at the wheels will
not happen without some serious mods.
I think you will need more than that, pulley, intake, exhaust, injectors, fuel pump, ecu...that would probably do it.

With the stock setup on the SS you should be able to run about 20psi on the supercharger without breaking anything. That should boost your horsepower to right around 300. No other mods required due to the water/air intercooler. There are suggested mod parts that would help get more power ie. cai and free flow exhaust, but no problems should be experienced.
