Thank you everyone for the feedback. Even though it will probably never pay for itself, I still want it and if it will fit into my budget this year I'm going for it. I'm also getting my first tattoo at age 62. I'm actually quite relaxed about things in general so I don't believe I'm going through a crisis! Thanks again. John

I am getting the STS "Universal" kit for my 07 Ram 4.7 Li. Manual 6 speed. I was quoted approximately $4000 for everything, maybe a little more for the Intercooler. I've done a lot of research. Tuning is absolutely necessary unless you're willing to rebuild your engine. I'm having the computer completely retuned. Intercooler is a must. About 8 lbs. of boost will turn your Ram into a powerhouse. Retro Rides is doing all the work. If you want gas mileage don't waste your time with a turbo. Get a cold air intake and a tuner. You'll save thousands over a turbo and get the same mileage results.
On a side note. Has anyone experienced steering problems? Rack and Pinion, struts, etc? I've had bushings go bad twice already.... Thanks!!

Sts is what ill be doing if I don't get this supercharger. I have a buddy who has installed this kit on his 04 4.7l r/c. He was being tuned with sct. Then something happened to his turbo. StS replaced it but he decided to install a hemi instead.

It was a rear mounted Turbo setup.

02-06 ram can be tuned with sct custom tuning.
05-10 ram can be tuned with Diablo sport preditor.

You will need to upgrade injectors to 39# cobra injectors.
Change 4 bar map sensor to a 2bar.
