Default Magnacharger Kit and tranny upgrade?

My 1500 2011 is bone stock and I am interested in dropping a magnacharger kit into it. Just wondering if anyone here has had an experience with these kits and can offer and advice on upgrading the bottom end. At 6psi boost it suppose to give me an additional 120rwhp+. Can the stock tranny and diff handle that additional power? Any aftermarket products you would recommend in addition to the charger?

Thanks very much.

Welcome to the Z from Calgary!

You don't need to do anything to the bottom end if you're only running 6-8psi. I would recommend getting a line pressure booster and a shift kit for the tranny just so it handles the power better, but the stock tranny will handle the SC just fine as long as you're not running crazy boost. I'm not sure if MC has a kit for the '11s yet because of the tuning issue, but if they do, it's most likely a piggy-back system.

The 11s are not tunable yet. Some people have done a PCM swap and fixed the problem that way. Maybe they will chime in here...

I don't think we have any PCM swaps here yet, but the're on other forums! Contact/Google B&G Chrysler for some more info!
