Just curious as to why we don't hear very many on here running the Kenne Bell supercharger setup? From their website:

1 year ago they would not touch an lx now they offer a kit? They brag about running 12 psi or more on stock internals thats brave. Most stock hemis break at 7-9 psi 10-11 track use only. I'm not saying they make a bad product their older stuff was top notch. I just feel they are exaggerating their claims. I just dont see 12psi on a stock 6.1 lasting for long. A few trips to the track maybe but not daily driver. 6-7 psi great 10+ I think your looking at gs motorsports style engines regardless of claims. Stock hemis are not designed for boost.

I met a guy at Beach Burger who had a Kenne Bell Challenger putting down 526RWHP. I don't remember how much boost he was running but i know it wasn't 10-12 PSI. The car is his daily driver.

Cool - I didn't know much about the price. It's just that KB has been around forever and I wondered why they haven't been very popular on the LX platform

I'm running a KB. Although my car is not a daily driver and it has forged internal's, there several LX's running these on stock internal's. The price certainly has a lot to do with it but, it’s probably one of the most efficient S/C out there and could be driven as a daily driver. I'm currently not running the sensitive throttle WOT unit but, will be having it installed next week which should further improve drivability.

How about the Magnuson kit that is out now. It sounds like a killer kit. Its really quiet and uses less drag to turn it. Its the same type that is on the ZR1 Vette.

Actually my best time for the 0-60 is now 4.10. I havent updated my avatar. That was with no wheel spin so it is a true EVIC 0-60 time. Its not a fake wheel spin 0-60 time. LOL

That validates KB's claims
