experience with forced induction

I would like to know from the guys that have done forced induction either turbo or super, how much faster is the truck. Have any of you taken them to the strip, raced any other cars, and just how does it feel to have a force fed hemi as opposed to stock. Is it night and day, would like to know your experiences. Also as far as problems is it worth going this route?

Well, I can switch on the fly between 3.5 and 9psi of boost. I know the 3.5psi was a huge improvement over stock, and now the high boost setting makes the low setting feel like I'm standing still. My local track doesn't open until this weekend, but I'm thinking the turbo will have knocked 2 seconds off my 1/4 mile time.

On the street, the tires will break loose at 40MPH if I hit a crack or dip in the road. Almost feels like the front wheels are leaving the ground (not likely though).

Difference is night and day!!!

I knocked off over 3 seconds off my stock time with the sts turbo....including 4.56's, and 2500 stall, and meth injection. Check out the 1/4 mile section...power through the stock exhaust manifolds!!!

If you can get the truck to hook, you'll see huge improvements

How much 4 a turbo? How long to install?

Let me put it this way...if you don't feel a difference after installing a turbo or supercharger on your Hemi, you have no pulse to begin with!!!

I had a 2005 4wd Rumble Bee with a GSM kit and it was great. I installed a 6" lift and heavy 35" Toyo M/T tires a few months before I traded it in. Then, a few weeks before trading it I removed the supercharger. The difference was beyond night and day.

Fun factor is well worth the price.

Night and day and then some.

Just the little stuff like taking off from a light with 1/4 throttle will pull you out there like a little v6 rocket.

More throttle and you are slammed back into the seat.

WOT makes passengers grab the Oh chit handles.

Stock I made 267hp at the rear tires. Well, that was stock with AirRaid intake and flowmaster American Thunder exhaust.

At 7lbs of boost I made 420hp at the rear tires. I now run 8.5lbs of boost with 450rwhp.

Prices:

I am a dealer for STS and only do Hemi's.

base kit is around 3600 and 120 shipping for the turbo kit without a tuner.
Hemi tuner kit, SMT-6 with larger injectors and a 2BAR MAP sensor is 1000

This will be good for up to around 5lbs of boost. After that you need a boost controller, cheap (150 or so) and either an intercooler prices go from around 600 to 2000 or meth injection, around 500.

I give full support for the turbo install and the guy that sells the tuner kit gives support for the tuning, but there are a bunch of us that will help with tuning issues.

Then, you should have a boost gauge and wideband A/F gauge.

Install and tune would probably run between 1500 and 2000 if you don't do it yourself. If you do it yourself, you'll need at least the gauges and a good scanner like an autoxray 6000, around 700 but can be found for less.

I don't do installs anymore.
