Thinking about an SuperCharger...

I have the GC Hemi 5.7 and thinking about getting a SC, for you that have experience with SC, how reliable is a SC ?

Sine my GC is my daily driver and I have a family I don't want too much problems and want to be able to drive my kids to school, and on the way home drag race a few people on the red lights, lol, without having to drop it of to the shop every other week.

Thanks for any input!

Re: Thinking about an SuperCharger...

Bolting on a supercharger kit is not the problem. If you stick with the supplied pulley you should be fine. The issue I see is how good will your drivability be under different load conditions. Don't think you'll get stranded anywhere but your around town drivability may not be as good as before.

Depends on the tune. Ripp tunes are on the conservative side so I don't think drivability will be an issue

Re: Thinking about an SuperCharger...

Thanks guys!

Ripp looks like one of the better kits, Procharger have a kit that seems good also, gonna go to a local dealer and talk to them about the kit.

Tuning for WOT is easier than tuning for drivability. I'm not familiar with Ripp's WOT tunes but if I had to guess there not designed to blow anything up. So I guess we can say it's conservative or optimized for peak performance. But tuning for drivability is another matter.

A supercharger is another accessory that takes HP to spin and this load will vary. The more air the supercharger puts the load will change or vary and this has NOTHING to do with a conservative WOT tune from above.

I'm sure Ripp did a lot of real world drivability testing to get their drivability tune close but each vehicle's condition is different and I'm sure there will be some issues with some vehicles and others probably none. But it will require the owner to either send the chip back to Ripp or visit their shop and have them see exactly what the issue may be so they can adjust their drivability tune.

I hope this helps

Re: Thinking about an SuperCharger...

I installed the RIPPED SC on my 2012 5.7 Grand back in Dec. It runs great. It's my daily and runs with no problems. FB_IMG_1450585961902.jpg Here's mine
