Yep, the more I read on the SCs the more I'm realizing the SC is the way to go. You don't have to break the engine open to get it installed and as long as you have a good tune you're good for daily driving. Plus if you ever want to sell the car its pretty easy to go back to stock and you can sell the SC separately.I ran 8lbs on a totally stock 5.7 auto. Vortech v3
For 30,000 plus miles of beating and a hundred passes or so.
Running deep in the 11s the whole time, along with 1200 mile round trips visiting a sick father
And get 20mpg plus on the highway.
I would go SC any day.
You're right, I spoken to several people who say that the 5.7s shouldn't run more than six, and others who say they've ran more. I also found a guy who said he blew his running 5. Glad you asked the question, hopefully more people will chime in.Sounds like a great deal
Someone spooked me about the pistons breaking but I'm sure you have done many installs without any issues
What about the 392 though. What's your prediction for RWHP @8lbs? Should the connecting rod AND pistons be swapped out? Lastly, specific to the 392, for around town & sometimes 1/4 mile, roots/twin rotor or centrifugal? Thanks.8700.00 installed out the door, 8lbs of boost, and 560+ hps, easy simple, efficient.....also need to remember that when driving normally with the Magnuson, your not into boost, so its very easy on the engine, very docile, almost like a regular car until you step into it and wake up a sleeping giant....
ps 15k miles on my R/T with more than 8lbs of boost, no issues, 22 to 23 mpg on the hwy and lots of road trips
Seems like all these guys are running SCs. You gotta talk to both sides. Ill be putting in a small cam and headers this week.It's been weighing on me recently
Would be a lot easier to spend 5k on cam and heads and get 60-70rwhp
But spending 12k for a supercharger setup seems like a lot of $$ dodge should have forged the damn pistons to begin with
Will do. Im only doing a small cam though cus my 392 is a daily driver. The weird thing is whenever I talk to shops is they say theyve done cams in the 392s but where do these people exist? So you really never hear there experience. I guess im gonna be the first if everything goes well.Cool
Yea let me know how the comp cam works out for you
I don't think we have a lot of results yet on 392 cams unless others can chime in
We have similar mods so it should be interesting to see where you're at after the cam swap
I've heard mixed story's in general
