Valve Spring Failure With Forced Induction?

Has anyone, specifically anyone facing the "Valve Spring Replacement Recall" experienced valve spring problems after installation of forced induction?

My issue is, we own a 2013 BRZ that has been issued the recall notice. The car only has 9000km on it. I have a Jackson Racing kit sitting in the shop ready to install, but have been waiting to get the recall completed first. I am now reluctant to have the recall completed with the apparent high failure rate post repair. I an not confident the reward is worth the risk (the recall repair) and may forgo the recall and get the super charger install underway.

I have a 2013 BRZ that I got the recall notice for, and have been supercharged (edelbrock) since Nov 2015. I have not brought it in for the recall because my dealer won't perform the work unless the car is returned to stock first. That might be a blessing in disguise, as it's been working fine so far, and I'd be worried about something else going wrong after the work is performed. Of course, the dealer would deny it's their fault and blame it on the aftermarket mods.
