Got to see a nice supercharged 4th gen sleeper this morning
This isn't really a question....I just saw something totally awesome this morning and wanted to talk about it, lol.

So I dropped my truck off at a local shop to have new brakes and shocks put on this morning. The owner of the shop drives a bright red 4th gen quad cab that I see sitting out beside the shop every time I go by. It always looks immaculate....not a spot of dirt anywhere....but it looks completely stock. Well this morning I got to talking to him and he told me that his truck has a little "something extra". Shortly after buying it he took it to Petty Performance (yes, THE Petty's) and had them install a Magnacharger supercharger system. He showed me the dyno sheet. I don't remember the exact numbers but it was somewhere around 440hp/455tq to the rear wheels!! It also has a set of Hedman Headers and a Borla exhaust. He let me take a look under the hood and started it up and gave it a little romp.....holy crap on a cheeseburger!!! It sounds freakin awesome. By far the best sounding truck and maybe car too that I have ever heard in person. He even volunteered to let me take it for a drive one day.

Well.....add that to the list of things to work towards, lol. It's gonna take me a while.

good lord. you should definitely introduce him to the Z! would love to see some pictures of that beast.

The next time I go by I will definitely refer him to the forumz. I am going to take him up on that test drive offer some time too. The crazy part is it looks 100% bone stock. It even still has the original Goodyear Wrangler HPs....everyone gets rid of those, lol.

I must say, I do love the Magnacharger systems!

I was looking at the Magnacharger site and also did some average driveline loss calculations and I would guess the engine is making around 510hp/530tq....basically identical to the 8.3L V10 in the SRT10 Ram.....amazing.

Cant imagine how fun that would be!

I like the look of the Maggie. I wonder which puts more to the ground between ripples and the Maggie
