Default Turbo Hemi

I have a 2004 Hemi Quad cab sport currently and had a 2005 Hemi Quad cab Laramie until my ex-girlfriend wrecked it. I am wondering if anyone here is running a STS turbo system on a 04-06 Hemi. I am looking into getting a Hemi RC 2x4 and want to put a STS system on it and was wondering if there were and problems like with the trans or any other I should be aware of. Also does anyone have a 03-06 regular cab long box lowered. I'm trying to make my mind up and have lots of questions. I have searched multiple places and haven't found the answers. Thanks in advance.

I can't say I've seen one yet. I saw a lot of supercharged HEMI's in SoCal at the end of March at the LX Spring Festival. There are some pretty nice kits out for the 5.7L now, Techo - Vortech - Paxton, and they are making some monster HP and torque.

Good luck with your mods!

I guess what I really wanted to know was if the stock transmission will handle the extra power without slipping or breaking altogether. I'm trying to find the Vortech system, do you have a link for the truck system?

I've been told by folks who are in the know that the tranny will handle up to 500/500 HP/Torque.

Here's a link to the Vortech site for HEMI's. They only list the cars but I can't imagine they haven't figured out how to make this work in the trucks as well:

The Techo Supercharger system intrigues me. One of our supporting vendors here offers up a kit. Again, it's listed for the LX/LY car platforms but I'm sure they can put you in touch with the mfgr or help you with your application:

Dang, a turbo guy. Welcome! I would be interested to see one also. They have definitely come a long way in terms of reducing turbo lag. Welcome to RamForumZ!
