Sure they make a V8 engine =0).

Only superchargers out right now are for the 5.7 and the 6.1 hemi. Maybe in due time, there are a bunch of you guys who want one

You can always set up your own turbo kit. A small 6-8 psi system wouldn't even need an air cooler.

Probably not going to be worth it for the performance gain vs. the price...these engines weren't exactly designed with boost in mind.

Re: Supercharger/Turbo

Turbos are not that expensive, and the power gains can be substantial once tuned.

My friend has a basicly stock 440 (although studded and beefed up) with twin turbos and is making over 700hp.

Mostly it's time invested to get all the plumbing fabricated, and getting everything tuned.

The problem is that people modding their daily drivers want something they can bolt on and go, and not tie up their daily car. Unfortunately with the advent of EFI and OBDII, as well as EPA rules for emmissions have killed the American rodder. Hotrodding cars today is limited and the rodding spirit to "do it yourself" just isn't there anymore.

actually nitrous(nos is a brand), from what I have read, is just as safe as a turbo or supercharger when done correctly.

Not sure. Most V8s can take a basic 75-100 shot "safely".

The thing to keep in mind is that it's not just a matter of "spontaneous, critical disassembly" (blowing up) that you have to worry about.

Repeated use of nitrous will just plain wear an engine out. You motor may not come apart, but there is a good chance it will not have a long efficient life.

THOUGH ISNT THAT TRUE WITH TURBOS IF NOT MAINTAINED CORRECTLY?

I MEAN THE ENGINGE WEAR MAY NOT BE AS FAST WITH TURBOS AS WITH NITROUS
