After I go stage 2 on my VRSCDX I'm playing with the idea of a supercharger. My main concern was engine life after a major performance upgrade like this. So the main question I have is: do superchargers decrease engine lifespan?

Anything that makes an engine work harder or places extra stress on components is going to create a decrease in lifespan. How much depends on the quality of the build and its useage.

There's no free lunch if stressing the components past the original design. That said and built for the task, it will last a long time especially at lower levels of boost of 6psi.
