Make sure the tranny will bolt on. Couple of searches I did, says the 6.4 uses the 8 speed tranny...

My 2: New 5.7 and Supercharger. Done deal....

Yea but that's 9k for the 5.7 and then about another 8-9k for the supercharger kit and installation. Not very cost effective. Best bet would be trade it in for a SRT with lifetime warranty

Trade it and I would not worry about the ethical thing, especially with that high miles on it. I really doubt you'll get 20K-ish though. When it's out of the ordinary KBB is not gonna be accurate. You'd be lucky to get 15K-ish IMHO.


I think if you got a 5.7 with the new 8 Speed you'd find a good boost in performance.
