Well - those are two very different things - and we actually deliver better MPG... our shop rig picked up 3mpg in the city over the 5000 miles we've had it running.

Now, that said, if you replace the springs, pushrods, and cam with the 6.1 components (which Ma Mopar did in 2007 in the 5.7L) then it would theoretically hold fairly well with a system like yours (but not with a roots blower - again you would need forged lower components for that...)
But here's an offer for you....I have a built 03 5.7 Hemi motor (forged pistons, 6.1 cam, springs, and pushrods) and heads ported for a blower/turbo setup.....would you be interested in using it for r&d in exchange for a unit for my truck?? I also have a lifted 08 that I would LOVE to have a supercharger in, which I can bring to you also to do r&d with in exchange for a unit....
Sure - but we are not pounding the engine with boost - we are delivering it gradually over the entire RPM band.
