I like hearing this! I have installed turbo kits before, they can be a pain especially when having to custom fit everything. How difficult will tuning be? It seems as though all the newer trucks require the dealer to tweak the computer.

Yeah the only problem is adapting it to fit our engine. I'm not sure but have a feeling the 2nd gen 4.7L will have even less support than the first gen, due to rumors of the 4.7L being discontinued, along with the dakota being discontinued (that was the main drive for aftermarket 4.7L support). Still though, 400rwhp out of the 2nd gen 4.7L with mildly boosted and relatively inexpensive supercharger is very doable. With airram's NA 1st gen 4.7L I believe he was very close to 300 rwhp. 400-450 shouldn't be far off on a FI engine. Just need to know what to do....I don't think I know enough about FI to do it myself unless it were a bolt on kit, and this would take some tweaking.

Agreed. I think tuning would be the most difficult portion, that and paying for the additional fuel and tire expense!!

Actually, the STS turbo kits made for the hemi appear to be more of a bolt on than these supercharger kits.

STS is a remote mounted turbo system, meaning that it is located away from the engine. Usually these are mounted inline with your exhaust under your vehicle. The good part is they are easier to install, the bad part is that the turbo is exposed to anything and everything you may drive through!

Yes it locates the turbo down near the rear axle. Not an issue if you stay on pavement....most that do turbo wouldn't dare take their truck off pavement anyway....but good point it is something to consider...
