So i came across, i think the first possible supercharged 3.6L pentastar. It is by RIPP superchargers and they did it on a 2012 Jeep Wrangler JK. Here is a video and i think they have posted couple more realted to that particular jeep.
9-11-01 nose badge | 3.5L hood badges | CAI | Hood pins | MOPAR hood struts/pedal kit/fuel door | blacked out side mirrors | Under dash ambient light | Jones Full Boar exhaust | Cuda' style MOPAR hockey stick striping | Script grill badge

As for the jeep comment...i can install a turbo and a supercharger on any damn car i want...BUT its the tuning that matters...all a supercharger or turbo does is push more air into the motor and the motor is fine with that...AIR is what it needs to function...so fine they installed a superharger...have they tuned it? What boost are they running? Almost any motor will be fine wih really low levels of boost and alomg with that a modificaton to a car no matter what it is can actually do nothing performance wise unil its tuned properly...
...granted not a challenger at all...but its still a turbo on a car that is not tuned for it and guess what it runs...BUT we are not driving it over 3k and about 25% throttle and he is buildig no boost...so the car is will run and not blow up...enough to drive it...but not mash on it...(we are taking it to the tuner in the morning)
So good for them..they installed a supercharger on a car and it ran...no duh...thats not a surprise...did the ecu learn that there is a s/c on their and change air/fuel ratios to run it well? My guess is a big fat NO...
And honestly i would never install a piece of forced induction equipment on my car amd let the ECU try and tune it...i want some one to look at it and who knows what they are doing tune it properly and get the most out of it possible in the safest way possible...
*edit* i just looked on their site and they do not seem to be selling this kit...thats because they cant tune it, so motors have an almost gaurantee they will blow up and/or the supercharger will make no real difference in power.
Do you have any more links to this building boost and making serious power? Or just them starting it up and not even revving it.
I will say this though its a step in the right direction on a whole for the 3.6 market...so thats awesome!!

I have a dumb question. Does putting a supercharger on your v6 reduce the life span of the engine?
Adding a SC to my 3.6 might be an option for me after i pay it off and i still want to keep the car.
