@ Nephron
Mine was one of the 1rst PCM swap cars out of Arrington, so they did the SC install as well & yes I got the warranty. Note* total bull, if someone says you'll get the watered down Mopar tune. If you wish, Arrington will give you an offroad/race only version that will give you everything you want to get max HP. There is no more limits to where you can go with these cars now that Arrington has Chrysler's blessing.
Good luck on the build, you'll love getting blown!

@ conceptmachine
The auto's should have upgraded solenoids/bluetops @ a min. to prevent the trans from going into limp mode while under extreme load. I have a man 6 w/ 572.7 rwhp 581.6 tq @ 8.1 psi, never had any trans work & never had an issue. Other auto's with the same blower have had limp mode issues & eventually upgraded to blue top solenoids to remedy this problem. Arrington reccommends the auto trans upgrade, but doesn't make it a requirement to get blown.

Nephron, You should also call Arringtion and inquire about the fuel system upgrade components also, we have seen even with only 6 psi boost a loss of fuel pressure above 5500 rpm using the stock fuel system, or atleast have a good fuel pressure gauge installed on your vehicle during your initial tuning processs. Hope this helps

Greatly appreciate the input, we were actually just talking about this earlier today, the kit already comes with upgraded injectors but in addition to that we will be upgrading the fuel pump as well, so the rear seat will need to come out!

Keep the advice coming guys!

Besides a maggie at 18 psi, what else was done to achieve that HP?

That part is not true, it has the same effect any supercharger instal has on the factory warranty. If the sc causes the issue, no factory warranty, if it doesn't than you are fine. Of course one can purchase the optional warranty coverage thought magnacharger that reimburses $$ in the event of a failure.

This is a clear example of the downside to internet forums; so many people just post garbage, based on what they've heard or convinced themselves of believing based solely upon their own opinions of the way things should be, without doing the proper research before pressing that little "submit" button @ the bottom of the page. Thank you for correcting this critically misleading information. This could be a tipping point for a consumers choice in getting blown. Extremely important info! We'd all be very surprised how many people depend on forums just like this one to make a final decision on this stuff.
There should be a simple forum rule: "Post Nothing You Can't Confirm"

Great input once again, in fact on Arringtons site regarding the supercharger they talk about the Magnusson Moss act which states that the manufacturer has to prove damage was caused by the modification performed. The same is true in other forms of law where one must show that a particular act or neglience led to the harm being claimed, such as in medical malpractice.
