The only differences between the Supercharger and a burned EPROM
are that the SC BIOS leaves the VCS RAM in a defined state and
that accessing the 'hot spot' at $FFF8/$FFF9 in any way will trigger
the SC bankswitching and might therefore crash the game. For a newly
written game it shouldn't be a problem to avoid these two bytes though.
