10. ??? With 8.2 lbs of boost 575 rwhp 10.2 now no dyno run
11. No runs great
12. Bigger supercharger
13. I love my whipple. I had no idea how nice it would be to drive with this much hp (combination of whipple and ppp's tunning). The 426 just need more boost than the 2.4 can make. I am going to up grade to a bigger supercharger. I wish yella terra's shop was in the us. I am still sorting out which supercharger i am going to use to get more air.

13. Any additional Information? > install a adjustable Hobbs switch for BAP set to 2.0 lbs of boost to spool up pump sooner. So fuel is there before you get to the 6lbs of max boost, keeping a/f ratio in check. Have a good tuner tune. Must have a/f gauge if running boost, IMHO.

So since I haven't had a huge response to the thread, I decided to go through hundreds of threads that spoke specifically to Superchargers and collect as much information as I could from those threads to answer the questions.

So far, I was able to identify 43 ChallengerTalk members along with the model of their car and the brand of their Supercharger. You can find the results at the bottom of the initial post.

I will continue to collect and update the data as you post your information to this thread along with me continuing to collect information on my own.

Thanks---

I have gone through another 500+ posts trying to identify ChallengerTalk members' Supercharger setup and posted the updated information on the initial thread.

I added stats on New Engine Builds versus Stock Engines.

I have been trying to collect increased HP but I'm thinking I will only post the average gains based on the posts to this thread to make sure I gather the gains that the actual owners agree on rather than what I find on the site.

SO KEEP POSTING UP THE INFORMATION!!!

It's taking longer than I thought to collect the information, but at 51 CT Members it's starting to look good.

Thanks!!!
