So far so good. I had my procharger installed back in June and have had no issues. It's no secret that the rods and pistons are relatively weak in comparison to the V6 or 5.7, but the key is in the tuning and making sure you don't boost more than about 6psi. I certainly don't baby mine and every time I go to the dealership they inspect it to make sure everything is running/working right. I've heard of several people destroying their SRT's by adding a blower, but it's normally because the tuning is bad and or they are trying to boost at 7+psi.

I think I'm gonna roll the dice on stock internals but ask for a very conservative 5psi tune. So you ended up just going with someone local for the tuning? If I was gonna have someone like Johan tune remotely, would I buy the tuner kit or the regular?

Also did you look into the Procharger kit vs the Demon kit with the PC head?

I know for a fact I'm putting 560hp to all four wheels. I had it dyno tuned.

Also did you look into the Procharger kit vs the Demon kit with the PC head?

It was a huge headache honestly. I tried to get it tuned through email on my Diablo tuner from HemiFever and he simply couldn't do it... I also didn't get that $350 back either. When it comes to the tuner kit or full kit, it's simple. Do you have headers? If you do, you have no choice but to get the tuner kit because Procharger's standard tune that comes with the full kit will not work with headers and they are zero help when it comes to tuning or even answering questions about it if you call. If you don't have headers then I recommend getting the full kit, it comes with spark plugs, fuel injectors a Diablo tuner and preloaded tune that works perfectly, then you don't have to worry about emailed tunes. Emailed tunes are great until you are dealing with turbos or Supercharger's. As I'm sure you know, the best way is to have it tuned though is on a dyno in real time, it's worth the extra time and money. I didn't even look at the demon kit, I was torn between RIPP and Procharger... ultimately procharger won me out because I've heard too many stories of guys destroying their engines with RIPP and their provided tunes.

Thanks for the feedback. Last question - in your original post you said you were going to do the install yourself but then it looks like you took it to a shop. Did you ever attempt the install yourself?

Honestly I was going to try and do it myself, but I had gone to the dealership to get an oil change and the discussion came up about me wanting to add the supercharger. The dealership offered me a great deal to do the install and would back up the work with a warranty... there was no way I could pass that up. I think I could've done it myself, the kit comes with step by step colored instructions. I had read in several places that many people accidentally puncture their radiator when mounting the intercooler (which the dealership did on mine too and replaced at no cost to me). Any time you can get a warranty, it worth it IMPO.
