I have a 2000 CC 3.9L 4x4. I am looking for a supercharger that I can bolt on. All that is offered by Vortech is for Dakota/Durango 5.2 or 5.9. Any suggestions or tips would be greatly appreciated.

Electric is useless...someone calculated it up and in order to get enough boost to make a real noticeable difference, you'd need to be running something like 13 or 14 alternators.

There was a study done that proved a leaf blower gave a small gain on the dyno. They hooked the leaf blower directly up to the throttle body I believe, ran it full blast and dyno'd the vehicle that way. It had a little more horsepower with the leaf blower than it did with the normal intake. Although I don't think you wanna be rigging a leaf blower up to it...

Also...I believe KRC Performance offers V6 supercharger kits, but they're far from cheap.

I've also heard that kits designed for V8's will work with some modification.

Yeah...KRC Performance has em.

Dang...if you're willing to spend the $4k on a supercharger if I were you (just my opinion) I would drop in a v8 for that. You'll probably right at or maybe a little behind in power but at least you can work up from a stock V8. Once you've got the supercharger on...then what?
