here ya go:
"SMS296 Twin Screw [COLOR= ]Supercharger[/COLOR] for Dodge / Chrysler/Jeep

I was wondering how it's possible on new ram 5.7l 2009,2010,2011 with the [COLOR= ]high compression ratios[/COLOR], do ya'll adjust accordingly or go through the bottom end? any help on this would be greatly appreciated as i have been looking for a supercharger for my new truck. Thanks! -Hunter"
and he answered:
yes it is adjusted via the tune and the pulley. to make the 550hp you only will need about 4lbs of boost

That's what I figured. Low boost pressure. These new engines are phenomenal the way they make power. Just a few simple bolt ons and BAM!

with that much low pressure though is it even worth spending that kinda coin on it? I mean yeah 550 hp but its pretty easy to break traction already with the 390. Just my opinion

To be honest, you can get naturally aspirated to 550hp for about half of that price.

From what research I've done, 500hp would only be about $1,100.

Headers, lose the Y-pipe, make it true duals with an X-pipe, smooth out the stock air inlet tube and change out the filter (or get a CAI), a Diablosport Predator, and a VVT cam from Arrington engines.

I'm not guaranteeing 500hp, but I would think that'd get you pretty darn close.
