You'll be fine with that setup. Tim over there who tunes their cars knows his stuff. My only concern would be return on investment at staying below 6psi. You'll only gain about 100RWHP or so, so take that in to account. It is the safest route though if that's your objective.Speedy and Buckwheat - I've read numerous threads with remarks from each of you. Obviously you guys have a lot of knowledge and worthwhile info. to share. My concern is that neither of you have stated anything about going with a Kenne Bell supercharger. I have a stock 2011 RT 5.7 and was planning on building it slightly (tune, exhaust, cam). Upon a recent visit to Mr. Norms, however, my plans have changed. I was encouraged to go the Kenne Bell route and use the 2.8 supercharger along with an exhaust upgrade (including headers). We are playing it safe and plan on keeping the boost below 6 psi. The people at Mr. Norms in Illinois were very courteous, knowledgeable and helpful. I'm curious as to your thoughts about using a Kenne Bell (for street use only) with a boost below 6psi on my stock engine and drivetrain. Can I look for years of enjoyment or am I looking for trouble?!!! Do I need to definitely forge the pistons, etc. or can I get away with using my stock 5.7 as I've been told by various sources?
Any input from Challenger owners would be greatly appreciated...especially those of you who've already used superchargers. I'm just looking for a bit more power from an already lethal looking machine. Challengers definitely have the looks that kill! THANKS
You won't find a kit for it but there are tuners out there doing it. Like Mr. Norman. I am sure there are many others as long as you have the 6SPD like you do:guiness:. Have you talked to local shopsi'm waiting on a KB as well...have been for a year and a half now for my '09. May just go to the SRT or move to the Camaro/LS3 platform. The 5.7 doesn't have enough market pull apparently for vendors to build around.
