Want more power than 250hp, but dont want to trade in for an R/T. From my understanding a supercharger can boost up to 100hp-150hp.

1st and foremost can a supercharger be installed in the standard 2010 SE?

Would this be a safe choice for the 3.5L V6 engine??

How would it affect the longevity of the vehicle. Will it tare the engine apart?

Is a Turbo Charger consider a better or worse choice for 2010 SE 3.5L V6?

Just to clarify, the 2010 has the 3.5L V6, not the 3.6L, and yes, a supercharger or turbo can be installed. As far as power gains are concerned, realistically I'd suspect you'd see gains near but shy of 100 h.p. With a reasonable boost level you could expect a long life out of your car.

modern muscle has a S/C kit that makes 302 rwp with 10lbs of boost, which most believe is a safe level on the 3.5, since the motor has forged rod and pistons.

i know rdp has a turbo kit that runs around 8-9lbs of boost and pushing 330 rwp (if i remember corrctly)

ircp10 did a successful Supercharging project. He's ran a 13.6ish at 103mph. So yes, certainly an attainable goal. Just expensive.

As for turbocharging? uuhuhuhuhuh... 12 second goodness. Check out MCSChallenger's project, done by RDP.

hes also got a different rear gears and was running slicks and a stall converter (i think), plus that kit is close to 7k, so its also expensive for that kit and even more expensive to hit that number.

Oh agreed, and yes he was, however initially not using a converter and slicks for a mid 13's run. with a touch faster mph at the end.

Ran [email protected] on stock tires and stock convertor.
Motor made 350hp to the ground on initial dyno tune.
Running a race tune from RDP and a 3500 rpm Stahl convertor on VP100 Street Blaze fuel. I ran a [email protected]. That was on a hot humid afternoon on 3 year old Nitto Drag radials. When this heat subsides and i put the new tires on we are looking for 11s. stay tuned....:):guiness:
UPDATE,, ET [email protected].

I was actually communicating with RDP when I still had my SE. You're looking at over $8k to get the SE into the 12's, not $7k. If you have the money go for it. But you should leave the outside stock, that would make for an awesome sleeper.

Looking forward to see how this all turns out. I only have a few bolt on mods so far but I want to take the leap into forced induction; and seeing somebody do it on thier own is inspireing.
