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

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.

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.
