I have had no superchargers, but I do know at one time my we were looking at putting a Kennebell on our Challenger. You've listed a couple of the better ones I have heard great reviews on as well. Best of luck, keep us posted and hang tight, someone with more knowledge and experience in this field will chime in.

A twin screw, like kenne bell, would be cool. I don't know if magnacharger makes a twin screw for the hemi's. I just like them more than the centrifugal superchargers. That whine can't be beat.

I like the twin screw Roots type blowers myself.

Kenne Bell makes one for the 5.7L HEMI. Magnacharger does not offer one yet per their website. They do offer one for the 6.1L powered cars. Magnuson doesn't either, which is too bad as they make nice stuff.

The centrifugal types are another good option. I just like the sound of a twin screw.

Ya know...I'd contact the folks at BMC about a system. They do supercharging and can probably give you some insight as to what is available.

Interesting... the Petty Challengers we looked at last weekend had superchargers from Magnuson on them... I'm definitely not contradicting here, just curious if it's a custom manifold provided by Arrington Engines.

No, I didn't mean that Magnuson doesn't offer one for the cars, just not the trucks, yet...too bad, too.

I had a Magnuson on my 5.3L powered GMC Yukon and it was FUN!!!

Are you serious? That is sick! I wonder how difficult it would be to convert the Challenger version they off over to the Ram.

Here is what Magnusson is working on for the '09-10. No idea when it is coming out. Maybe a phone call is in order.

I've owned two blowers (for my car not my truck). A roots and a tvs and I really like the instantaneous torque from them and the twinscrews.

Procharger is a great blower as well with a nice linear powerband that NEVER drops off.
