I am very green when it comes to supercharging. I purchased a 2011 RT about two weeks ago. I have been reading articles and watching youtube videos about supercharging. I understand how Superchargers and Turbos work. I have a few questions.

1. Is a Procharger a turbo or a supercharger? It looks like a turbo. It doesn't look like a roots to twin screw. i assume it is its own thing.
2. Im pretty sure I don't want a turbo system, due to lack of tuning knowledge. They seem advance. Im pretty sure I want a ProCharger or a Supercharger, which one is more every day driver friendly?
3. Does a procharger or supercharger effect your MPG? I understand when your foot gets heavy, the gas gets used. Im talking about everyday driving.
4. Has anyone installed a procharger with helical gears yet? Is it really less noise?
5. I have an Auto trans. Is this a problem?
6. Are there any systems out for the 2011 models?
7. Does installing a supercharger or Procharger effect the on board computer? I dont want a bunch of warning lights turning on.

Thanks for all your help to everyone answering my post.

1. A Procharger is a Centrifugal Supercharger
2. Same as 1 :) And yes the Supercharger systems are definitely more plug and play
3. If you have a heavy foot it will affect it, however if you drive the ssame as you did before you may actually see an increase in mileage
4. Yes the helical gears make it much quieter
5. no
6. No tuning yet for any 2011 Challengers, but Diablo is working on it
7. No

Hope this helps, we carry Procharger, Vortech as well as Magnacharger in adddition to some turbo systems. Let us know how we can help

It might take Diablo a year to crack the 2011. Not an easy task. Nobody else will do it...... Johan will be the man.

What is the logic behind Dodge (Mopar) not supporting a tuning modification for their customers? I think it is rediculous to hold technology hostage! As soon as a tune comes out, the blower is going on!

I know this is an older post....but I too am curious what others have done to Modify the 2011 5.7. Seems the Tuner and supercharger are not quite ready...aside from a CAI and cat back, what other Mods are out there that have given you charger owners better throttle response and torque?
