Do the Magnuson Supercharger Kits work just overpriced?

It would be cheaper to wait it out for sure.

Ripp put together a great kit that's easy to DIY install
but the OP seems a bit impatient.

Personally, I'd make good use of my time while waiting
and save up another $3k for a built transmission.

Boost and Ram Transmissions don't play well together

I have 10k i'm ready to toss down. But seems no company is ready for it yet. Should i start with tranny build? I'm not sure the company you guys referenced to build it.

Yeah you could get the transmission done now and get a tuner.

Cost more, Run much Hotter (no intercooler system) , delivers too much low end torque
that will rip your tranny a new one in no time , ew, that sounded weird

as Cndoilram mentioned,
Centrifugal is better than a roots/screw type charger for our Rams.

Save up for a tranny, but don't bother installing it until you install and tune the supercharger
Mike makes adjustments to the trans part of the tune to compliment his build, one isnt much good without the other.

Here's a summary of where I'm at so far:

Supercharger Kit (Ripp 8psi, 500whp)
E-Fan (TYC replaces a/c fan and mech fan)
Tuner/Programmer (Diablo Trinity)
Headers (JBA shorties minimum and gut the stock cats)
Spark Plugs (1 stage colder)
Fuel Pump upgrade (Aeromotive Stealth 340)
Water/Meth kit (AlcoholInjectionSystems.com)
"Built" Transmission (L&M Customs for Boosted Applications)
ATS Triple Lok 3000 stall Torque Converter
Gauges and Pod (AutoMeter Fuel Pressure, Boost and Wideband)

I'm easily over $11k so far, and that's all DIY install

Should be several good threads about transmissions.

some more info here:

http://www.ramforumz.com/showthread.php?t=150477

Mike from L&M Customs is actually under contract working with Ripp for transmission tuning
and he's working on refining their engine tunes with Josh from HHP right now (that's what I'm waiting for)
If Ripp gets the tunes figured for the 12's, it will likely come with his influence

Yes he can buy a Diablo tuner (DCX or T-1000)
...But that wont get his 12' running a Supercharger until Ripp develops the custom tune for it.
Sorry, yes you are right!
I meant to say its imminent
