Hey guys, I'm starting to think about my next mod for my 2010 SRT8. I have already added the K&N CAI, the Diablo sport tune and the CORSA XTREME Cat Back. I want to add more HP to my baby, what is the next logical step? A Supercharger or something else? What do ya'll recommend and what kind of HP gain and cost can I expect?
Thanks in advanced for all of your input and advice.

Do some exploring here, this is a common topic, but you need to make some decisions on, budget, expectations, shop, and usage. The next steps start getting much more extreme and require a lot of cash and commitment.

BTW, Welcome to the group! We have a bunch of guys going to Gulf Shores on 1/29 (another forum). There will be guys there with all sorts of builds. PM me and we can discuss.

well normally the next thing you would do before going supercharger is get a converter that should get you to the mid 12's with a good tire.
Then if money is an issue you could get a small shot of N2O

The most important thing is setting a goal. Heads and cam can net you a solid power increase and you can also use them down the line if you want to upgrade your build later.
After that, you're looking at a supercharger or stroker (probably 426). If you decide to go big (blower or motor) give some serious thought to doing the motor first. It will give you a solid foundation to build on and make similar power to a supercharger at 6-8 psi.

I don't mean to be ignorant but what do you mean converter?

Torque Converter you can get one that allows you to rev the Car to your max torque before delivering the power to the transmission to get a harder launch. I'm not an expert on it, but that's how I understand it. I ave a manual myself

Ditto. Goals, personal expectations, budget along with building a solid foundation are very important. For instance, when we installed a blower on my stock 6.1 it produced a solid street level performance but it wasn't cheap. After a summer the tranny began to act up. I made the "leap" after that but rearend and half shafts would have been next if I had not changed out the entire driveline. Do a LOT of home work. This forum is a great place to start. Good Luck and Welcome!!:thumbsup:

C'Mon Man! Do you have the money for a Bugatti Veryon swap? Or do you mean beat a 15b 1600cc Honda NA, a 82 2.8l Camaro with a slushbox, and a 2300cc 1978 Mustang II?

Remember this.........Boost is the Replacement for Displacement! Get out your wallet!
