    • Totally worth it !

    • Not a good idea more bang for your buck on a LX platform.

Weighing some options and wondering if anyone personally knows anyone who has one and if a supercharged Ram is worth the effort . Is it viable or just smoke and tire shredding ? Not sure if I did the pole correctly.

The issue will be the transmission.....if you have an RFE. The RFE's aren't known for strength...it's the kickdown that gets them. Hammering in 1st gear is no issue, but anything that causes a downshift is the problem. Had a buddy that found the limit on his pretty quickly.

Soon as I put the Whipple on my Challenger I will gather what's needed to transfer the maggie to my 2011 Ram. Don't need monster power on the Ram but what the maggie puts out would certainly help when I go 4X4

Dont....just dont. If you do plan on a Nag1 conversion as well. The 545/645rfe is garbage and can't take the power. Yes we did. 392 /blower swap on Heidi's dad's truck. It is dialed Waaaaay back right now trying to keep the trans alive till we can swap the nag in. Just the 6.4 is almost too much for the trans.
