Default Supercharger options

I've seen plenty of kits offered for the LX platform for the Hemi's, but I haven't seen anything for the 09-10 5.7L trucks. Has anybody out there has put a supercharger on the 09-10 Ram? If so, what are your experiences with it?

I don't want to go the nitrous route like I did on my Magnum. I want the power there all the time. I'm very familiar with the nitrous kits, but I'd prefer a supercharger for the truck.

My goal is to have a low 13 second tow vehicle that is a very good daily driver.

Like other stated there isn't anything officially for sale yet for our gen truck but should be "soon."
If you can't wait I would find a very reputable shop to build you a custom turbo setup. A 67mm ball bearing turbo with an a/r of about .63 would spool quickly on a 5.7 and easily run to our low redlines. Keep the boost about 6-7 psi (for engine longevity) and you'll have a permanent Joker grin on your face.

I'm 2WD.

I'm in no hurry at the moment. Just trying to see what options are out there. I still need to finish up my 426 in my Magnum. That should be up and running next week.

It looks like I'm leaning toward the Magnacharger. I'll probably do ported heads and long tubes at the same time. I do like the Procharger kit. If I was going to forge the bottom end and go for big boost that would probably be the kit I'd go with.

If E-brock is going to release their s/c for our trucks I'd wait for that one IMHO. The new TVS design is quieter and thermally more efficient. I didn't see the MAP on Eaton's site for the 2.3L (E-brock size) but unless you plan on running more than 16-17 psi you can't beat the TVS.

I stand to be corrected. After a little more research and looking around I found out that the Maga Charger also uses the TVS2300 Eaton technology.
