Before 197 hrs, 260 torque(Jet stage II and a cold air intake, removed after SC)
After 263 hrs, 317 torque
Dyno pull limeted to 4200rpm due to governor,sucks.............
I'm really happy with mine. Kenne Bell. The paxton horse power numbers are a little higher but they take more revs to get there. I have a torque line at 2000 rpm up to 4200, perfectly flat. 317 right off the line. There is an old post around here somewhere where a guy posted my dyno sheet. Both are good. Good luck......... you will not be dissapointed either way you go.

I have a KB and my friend has a Paxton on both of our 01 R/T's. really the only difference that I can tell is the noise the paxton is quiet your can hardly tell that its there(by sound that is). If you like that winding on a supercharger than get a KB.

I have the Paxton and would never recommend or buy another one. I have had so many problems. It is very noisy.

Where can I buy a KB supercharger? Is there a list by state of shops that sell them? Or can you only get them directly from KB?

If you buy a KB, get it through Kennedy's Dyno Tuning in NY. Then you can use them for tech support. KB's tech support is terrible. The only bad thing about the KB is that it is virtually impossible to tune. As for performance, I'm sure you'd be happy with either one of them.

Now i have heard somewhere, that the KB supercharger Kit wont void dodge's factory warenty. I am wishful thinking with this or is their actually some truth behind it. And if it is true what type of steps you have to go through to make sure it wont void it

KRC Performance is suppose to be coming out with a turbo I believe. I have no idea on time frame though.

I have thought about selling it. What do you think it is worth? I have only had it on since the end of March. Email me if you are really interested and I can tell you the details of my system.
