Hey guys n gals,
I'm ready to buy a supercharger for my 08 ram 1500. What is the best bang for my buck? Like Procharger I've heard good things but has anyone dyno'd one yet? I would love to have around 500 rear wheel hp. Is that possible or would I also have to get nos

Currently my ram has shorty ceramic headers, cat back dual exhaust, airaid cia, superchips cortex programer, 2 1/2 leveling kit. Aftermarket rims and tires 315/60/20

So I've upgraded everything but the feul system. Any info would help w my soon coming purchase..to get more power out of my hemi..

Thanks

i'm pretty sure u will need some head and cam work with the supercharger to get 500 hp but i'm just guessing. as far as nitrous goes, that is always an option. I believe upon a supercharger upgrade usually different injectors are with the kit but I could be wrong.

Yes I am aware that supercharger kits come w new injectors. Was hoping someone out there had a procharger installed or magna charger that dynod them to know which kit would be better ect ect

500rwhp out of a 3rd gen with any supercharger without a few supporting mods is unlikely... With ported heads, headers/exhaust, and a good cam setup maybe. But even if you hit the 400-500 rwhp a new built transmission is necessary!!!

Yes a know this already , I wasn't asking which cam or what head work to do was I? No to be a dick but I was plainly asking which supercharger was the best, along w a dyno test or two ,to help me make a decision on which one to purchase...

For example if the general consenious is that procharger typically gets the truck rwhp to 412 and magison. Would get the truck to 390rwhp.. and I have facts to prove the power gains like a dyno sheet... seeing that iwant 500rwhp don't u think id go for the one that would probably get me closer to my goal....

Then I could do fine tuning things like changin heads, cams ect

You're asking about one mod and then asking for an unreal result. Best anything is usually based on its support. There are a ton of knowledgeable ppl on here that would gladly help. But may I suggest a little fine tuning in the vocab/attitude. You'll get what you are looking for with patience and the search button

I wasn't expecting to get 500rwhp out of just bolting on a supercharger. I'm not stupid. I know that's impossible.As I said in my last post. But Yes that will be my end result. I already said I knew that . I would have to make additional mods to the motor.

I have been a professional mechanic for 10+ yrs for dodge. All I was asking was for some info from ppl that already have installed a supercharger and what they dyno'd. There are not many supercharger kits out the for an 08 ram.

Yes I know there is a lot of ppl here that have valuable knowledge that is why a posted the original thread. I wasn't expecting to get answers from ppl that are telling me what I already know and not what I expected actual feedback by ppl with superchargers already installed and dyno results.

Maybe my first post was alittle misunderstood when I said I wanted 500rwhp and I appologize for that
