Many folks have installed a Procharger P1 or D1 on their C5Z's, although I prefer the D1-SC myself. The key is running a conservative amount of boost which is determined by size of the pulley you use on the blower.

You will need a new set of injectors (probably will come with the Procharger kit) and I highly recommend ARH headers to compliment the blower upgrade.

Most important of all is the kit to be installed properly (so there is no belt slip) and a good dyno tune after installation. I can't stress the importance of the tune enough.

Good luck on your upgrade!

ps...beware of the tuner who is trying to impress you with your final hp/tq numbers. We have often found that the A/F ratio they use to boost the numbers a bit is unsafe for your engine. Tell them to be conservative with the tune.
