Q: Is a supercharger a wise choice for a 2006 Dodge Charger

asked by on

Would it be ok for my engine if I were too buy a super charger?

My car has 160000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

A supercharger is a good choice for added power gains on your vehicle. You will get a substantial about of power without the added heat of a turbo. You need to be vigilant of the miles that are on your vehicle not as the added pressure can cause some issues with the engine. If you really want to be prepared for the supercharger you should have the engine itself upgraded to prevent from having any issues.
