    What supercharger does your kit come with?

    Kit comes with VortecV3, unless that's changed since last time I talked to them.

    Do you have a dyno graph for those numbers? They seem awfully low, considering the 04-07 3.6L 255 hp dyno's at 215-220 whp. The 3.6L DI should be in the 250-260 range by my guestimath. You mention that the kit makes 370 rwhp, and 100-150 hp over stock. By those numbers the LLT should dyno around 270 whp.

    3.6L auto at 220 rwhp stock.

    If the stock RWHP is 220 than 5-6lbs of boost will not net you 370-400rwhp.

    On paper 7lbs of boost will give you 50% more power, that's not accounting for the hp loss to drive the Vortech among other items that will affect the hp.

    underpsi has it right on. We see right around 400 whp.

    Systems are available for installs for any that want near V power from their 3.6 DI.

    Which part is he correct on? Are you actually pushing 7lbs? Did you actually dyno a 3.6L DI at 220 hp?

    Is there any reason to think this wont work on an LY7? Where do you stick the supercharger?

    here is a "rough" estimate... of course there are other things that can affect hp...location, dyno, temp, auto/manual, etc...
