Supercharger for Pentastar?

Anyone know of a good aftermarket supercharger for v6 Pentastar? Seems like that would be cool deal. More power than V8 and 350 lbs lighter.

I just supercharged my v6 nissan and its a frikin rocketship now. It drives like normal but as soon as you put pedal to the metal it peels rubber.

As far as I know there is not but from what I have heard is you would need a tuner to be able to adjust everything

Re: Supercharger for Pentastar?

No tuning, no kits available. Im sure could fab up brackets and such. I guess the only way to do it would be slightly larger injectors and an FMU, check valve in front of the map sensor.

Re: Supercharger for Pentastar?

Any reputable tuner can custom make one for you. It'd cost you some $$$.

High cost with low reward, IMO. Without tuning, you'd only be able to safely use a low boost pressure (5PSI, perhaps?). On the Pentastar, that might only net 35-40 hp. Factor in a cost of $5K+, and it makes more sense to just buy the v8.
