Lots of great options, what are your goals for the car short and long term? Daily driver, weekend cruiser, drag racer, road racer? Is a drivetrain warranty important to you? What is your budget?

Being a 5.7 car on a stock block. Vortec or Magna. If looks make a difference Magna. Not sure when EB is coming out

I'd go for either the Magnacharger or the Vortech.

The Magnacharger will be more fun on the street, but the Vortech will be easier to manage on the road course track. Either one in stock config will not hurt the car and will give you about 120RWHP.

If you are looking to build down the trail get a Vortech or Procharger. The Magnuson looks good for cars shows but lacks in performance due to its size 2.3 liter. I sure Flat Top or Plum Krazy can help you, Both of these guys did a home Vortech install and both run strong for stock.

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'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.

Shark and Speedy - Thanks for the quick replies. Will have to wait for a supercharger once the codes are figured out. Gives me more time to save $$$ and read all the threads. Getting a little impatient though!

i'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.

I don't understand. With all of the other people posting on Challenger Talk, many having 5.7's and supercharged, why can't you find a vendor willing to supercharge your 09? Mr Norms, etc.

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 shops

I would love to do that but have had bad luck with 2 superchargers. The third one was a Vortec w/Intercooler and upgraded fuel pumps, rails, injectors, etc., and it was Awesome.

I plan on keeping my warranty so I'll have to hope I live long enough to get a supercharger for the Mopar 10.
