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.
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.
