Twin turbos or supercharger?

Looking for suggestions on what to do with my 09 challenger srt8. My car is completely stock other than a few bolt ons. Strut brace and magnaflow exhaust.

 

I am really looking for a kit. I dont want to piece everything together. I just want to bolt it on, follow the instructions, and have a boosted reliable car.

 

Hellion twin turbo kit and prochargers have my interest. Do you guys suggest something else?

I installed a Kenne Bell on my 09 in 2011.  I am very, very happy with it.  

Whipple has become very popular since then and a lot of people have installed them.  Magnuson and Edelbrock are more choices.

The important part of the build is the tune, and who tunes it.

Here is my install thread.  It will show you what's involved in a DIY install.

Are there any good twin kits besides the Hellion set up?

Would I have to loose my strut brace for the Kenne bell set up?

I think so.  Unless you're road racing the car, the strut brace is not important.

I barely drive it. I just want some boost. My daily driver cummins diesel makes 50+ pounds of boost and i miss that boost feel when driving my car.

I was really posting here to make sure nobody jumped out and said Hellion is garbage and same for Prochargers. I'm about to drop $7000 on this car and don't want to regret it by buying the wrong set up.

Make sure you understand the noise a Procharger makes before you buy one.  

Make sure you hear the model you want running - in person.

I had a P1 and D1, the red race blow off valve is loud and fucking awesome.

If I had to do it again, I would do a Whipple for sure, the whine of that thing is awesome and it is a great kit.

Do some research on how they sound at idle.

what he is saying is the procharger is whiney as fuck at idle and gets annoying in short order.

 

im a turbo guy...so i dont typically suggest anything else.  in saying that,  a turbo kit will still make your hair grey or a forsale sign grow like grass in the yard after a rain storm.   not for the faint of heart or weak willed car guy.  if done it makes the most power psi to psi and more reliable.  blowers are easy to install vs turbos.

Pretty inclined with a wrench. Not too worried about a tough install.

fabrication required with turbos.  blowers simple hand tools.

 

if that isnt an issue turbo hands down.  makes more power lb per lb and with the right tune and converter or stick.  just as quickly spooled as a blower.  dont let any idiot whos never done a properly sized turbo setup tell you different.
