A turbo is more efficient when it comes to horsepower per PSI of boost, however turbos run hotter than supercharges. Turbos have lag, superchargers do not. People usually say that turbos are better for the engine, but IMO when you're adding that much more power to an engine neither are very good for then engine if you are expecting the engine to last for many 10s of thousand of miles, not to say it won't/can't but something to keep in mind.

At the moment really the only option to me is a Procharger centrifugal supercharger. There ARE turbo kits for the 3.7 like Hellion's but nothing quite thought out enough that I would trust, but that's just my opinion.

I agree. Even the turbo kits that are on the market do not seem durable like they were only made to put out high numbers in order to make a profit. Just my opinion, no facts to back me up.

No real turbo kits are for sale right now so only a procharger unless you slap your own kit together.

I'd prefer a supercharger over a turbo for the fact that I have that instant power as soon as I press on the gas. With turbos, you have to have to wait until your RPMs hit around 2,000-3,000, I think. It probably depends on the turbo. Plus, I love the whine the superchargers give out!

Well a centri SC is not an instant hit of power but a roots type is more the instant hit of power like the Shelby and Cobras from the days of yore.

Now the only real option is a SC unless you piece together your own turbo kit. Maybe in a year or two there will be a reliable turbo kit out.... but the problem is now they are unproven/unreliable, and if they aren't durable you could need a new kit or even engine. Turbo kits out now for our 3.7 is like jumping off a cliff blindfold and hoping you land in the water and not on the rocks.

Hellion makes a custom kit for the 3.7s.

http://www.americanmuscle.com/hellio...383.1400901073

From what I've seen, their kits are on point, so I don't know if I'd call it unreliable. Unproven, maybe, just because I haven't seen this kit used nearly as much as the Procharger.

Hellion has removed their V6 turbo kit from production.

I would never put that Helion kit in my car. It is overpriced, and pretty crappy IMO. I'm pretty sure they stopped producing it because it was so bad/no one bought it.

400-900 HP! Quite a range don't ya think? I'd love to see a 900HP 3.7. Maybe it's 400 at the crank and 900 in their dreams..

I wasn't aware anyone made a supercharger for the 2014 V6. The last time I checked procharger was only compatible with the 2011 & 2012 V6.

I was wrong. I checked and the Procharger is now offered for 2014 V6s, but they don't offer the full kit. Unlike earlier yrs., the 2014 is a tuner kit, requiring a Dyno. The others are available as bolt on & go. When I first got my 2014, last year they did not offer any option from Procharger.

The range is accurate of what the kit CAN produce WITH supporting mods. A stock engine you will get around 4-5 hundred HP. But if you go all out and build the engine for boost and turn the boost up then yeah the kit is CAPABLE of making 900 HP. When you start dealing with forced induction or N20 the spectrum can range from minimal gains to a lot.

Once LPF and Clamphier's team do some more R&D and testing, I think their kit will be the frontrunner for turbo kits but past them, I don't see anyone else even looking into it too seriously.

You could always piece together your own kit and get it dyno tuned, but that comes with it's own risks.

I'm sure anything is capable, but I'd still like to see one. Just never heard of a 900HP 3.7.

It's more to rate the capability of the turbo. Aftermarket kits tend to produce decent power but a lot of factory turbo cars max out around 3-400 hp due to the smaller size of the turbo. I'm sure to build a 900 hp reliable v6 would probable cost the same as a base v6 when it's all said and done.
