Default Magnuson Supercharger Installation - 09 Ram 5.7L

Ordered the system with Magnuson in January and it arrived within a week. There have been some hiccups along the build of the truck, however Magnuson's Customer Service all around has been excellent including overnighting of parts that needed replaced. Last night I placed the truck on the dyno and have experienced a Fuel Injector concern. This didn't let me finish the truck last night but am already working with Magnuson on this concern. All in all, the kit is going to be great once completed and am excited to show the forum members the results.... As a teaser, the truck did make 430hp on a partial pull and no spikes!

More to come as I sort out the injectors.

Are we taking bets on the final HP numbers on the dyno?

I would be happy to get 450hp out of the setup which doesn't seem very far off right now. I'm going to keep it safe that is for sure.

I was going to guess between 450-465 HP depending on how agressively it's tuned.

If you got 430 with medioker injectors im thinkin like 445 to 450 with a good tune and new injectors but the dyno might be different if temps are higher or lower compared to what you got previously. It would be nice to know what injectors you go with and what would be the total cost for this kit and all the extra's you had to get to make it work since its not so bolt-on-ish as we had all hoped. The Truckin magazine project black sheep ram with the magna kit made roughly 416hp with an all stock motor, so your numbers are spot on with american racing headers. When you dyno it are you running in third? Also what psi are you running? Make sure you get some damn vids of this man people need to see this kinda stuff pics are great btw keep them coming get some so we can see the truck and the S/C!

Thank you for the post. I am troubleshooting the vehicle with Magnuson and making sure every little detail is covered. Just not sure when I will be able to add more attention to the truck until the weekend but we will see. 430 Last night was great to see and would imagine 450 is going to happen with a conservative tune.

Vehicle is being dynoed on a DynoJet 248x right now and is being done in 3rd. No since in raising the IAT's to run the vehicle out in 4th at this time. Last night on the Dyno, Max boost was 6.2lbs. Was expecting less boost due to the headers being installed prior to the supercharger. Will definitely be getting videos when its completed.

Things are moving along... Just very slowly as I want to make sure personally everything is flawless. At this time there is no updates from last night.

What lb injectors are stock? I know I have 42lb in my Lighnting and would go to 60lb with a Whipple or KB.
