2015 R/T 5.7L A8
Even though you said just kidding, it did not help me at the time when I was already mind juggling all the negativity I was coming up with on my own.especially when you blow out the head gaskets and have water running down your engine block into the driveway. Don't forget the water in the oil pan and the dirty gummy dipstick, which is always fun.
Ha ha...Just kidding. Good luck.
So for the record:
None of what you Fear Factored has happened, as a matter of fact it has turned out way better than I had even hoped for. Makes we want to kick myself for waiting so long to do it, many want more power from their 5.7s, and want to install various types of cams, with many after stories not really showing that big of a change, or being 100% totally satisfied with the cam they chose. There is always, should I have gone with a different cam, it is not like it is a 30 minute swap to change, and is usually $5K to get it done, because it is a high mechanical skill to do, and many have shops do it for them.
Bolting on a supercharger is a really big instant change, a minimum 100hp change, but until the unknown is no longer an unknown, we don't know the difference. So adding a supercharger is definitely going to get you more power, and it can actually be done by the individual, to save yourself labor charges, which is actually a return to "Shade Tree Mechanic Days", if you have good mechanical skills and a lot of common sense.
