The new project will be happening the weekend after Thanksgiving. I was on one of the forums one day and someone put up a thread about a new company that's making superchargers for our Rams. They are charging significantly less than all other companies. There was a big discussion about reliability and power and this and that. I contacted the company as well as a few other people to try and get as much information as I could for everyone in the thread. The biggest concern was the fact that the unit didn't come with an intercooler. After getting all the info I had I texted Mike and asked him a few questions. He said the intercooler would be the easy part as long as it fits. He also said he had installed this companies supercharger before on a challenger (might have been a charger) and that they seemed to be good quality. after some more talking with him and some more talking on the thread I decided to be the guinea pig.
So with that being said I will be adding a TorqStorm supercharger in a couple weeks. I'll be running a Treadstone intercooler to go along with it. Mike is going to do the install and run the piping for the inter cooler. We are also going to be upgrading the fuel pump of the truck to be able to handle to new injectors (I also need to change my fuel pump as mine isn't working properly anyways). New colder stage spark plugs will be installed also. AJHemi (as he's known on the LX forums) from Arrington will be doing the tune. His shop, True Street Performance, is only 20 min from Mike's.
The plan right now is to run 5-6 psi of boost. This way the stock pistons will be ok and the trans should last for a little bit. The plan in the future is to ride this trans out until it fails and then go with either an L&M trans or a Sharadon trans as those seem to be the 2 best options. Once the trans is put in I'll eventually put new pistons in that can take some more boost and then I'll probably have the truck retuned for 10 psi of boost. But that's all a ways away right now.
Just some parts pictures
That's all I've got for now. I'll post back up once the install has started/finished and the truck is running with the supercharger in it
