Well i can speak from experience of the turbos with my car, but supporting mods will be the same regardless of turbo or blower. You will be forcing more air into the engine, so you would need to increase the amount of fuel and tuning as well.

It is also dependent on what your goals are too... if you only planning on pushing 4-5psi of boost into the engine, you might be able to get away with a KB boost a pump or similiar setup with a slight upgrade injector size. But if you want lets say 10psi of boost, it is safer to swap upgrade fuel pumps and go with a bigger set of injectors.

The biggest difference between blowers and turbos are the efficiency of each setup. You will usually see higher gains from a turbo vs a blower on the same psi. This is the NORMAL case. there are always exceptions. But i know individuals running 10psi out of their blowers producing 550whp and i am pushing 8psi and have dynoed more then 600whp.

**just want to make clear i am speaking from past experiences with previous vehicles and my current vehicles- have not yet boosted the SRT8**

Yeah I was referring to drivetrain and valve train. I have multiple twin turbo diesels , one making 775/1500 tq with pte 76mm over a Pte 63mm. It'll make 1100 on the juice. The other is a triple turbo setup with a pte 106 over a pte 82mm over a pte 66mm , triple compounded making 1200+ at low boost (100 psi). Just wondering about trans and valve float. Figured a blower would be easy 525 at the wheels and a lot less headache. For big power I will always choose turbo power.

ah gotcha, as far as drivetrain i will let others chime in when it comes to the SRT8. Because i will be curious on that as well.

My guess is the drivetrain and valve train would be very capable of handling up to about 550whp.

anything over that i would think the weak point would be the Transfer Case. i also do know a member on here just recently ordered a trans because his was not holiding up to a procharger D1 kit. But he had over 100k miles i believe.

Goodluck on the build. Also, I read your build timeline on your Camaro... damn you have had one heck of a ride with that. Keep up the good work.

I would get a set of blue top solenoids or a valvebody for the trans at least. A trans upgrade is inevitable, either one of those will buy you some time.

I'm BAAAAAAAACK....

2015 Billet Silver
past:
2012 300SRT
2009 Jeep SRT
2006 Charger SRT
Too many mods to list for each, so let's just say a lot was done over the years.

Yes, I'm on the 3 year plan...so 2018 better be a hellcat Jeep.
