    Well.....my tech called me and dodge said he was not allowed to put the new supercharger on the car. Dodge claims everything is within "spec" he told me thats BS. He could barely even get 9 psi boost. Air temp today was 40 F. It should be flying in the cool air. He told me to drive the hell out of it...and it something pops...good. then he can fix it. He also said to call srt in a week and complain that it feels underpowered. Which it does. I already have 1 complaint with them. He said after 2 they will start to do something more. He basically said his hands are tied at this point since dodge claims its fine. He seriously seemed upset and KNOWS it isn't running right.

    Why wait a week? Call SRT and complain now. I would also ask the dealers ownership to call the local FCA and get them involved asap. Also, some fact based emails to FCA higher ups may help. What a pain to have to mess with this. Let us know how things work out. Things have a way of working out in the end. Try not to let this issue bum you out.

    so what do you have to do, get a dyno sheet and have dodge reimburse you? I had to fight with dodge to reimburse the cost to diagnoise my sequential lights at a dealer to prove that it was a failed unit. And all the dealer did was turn the signal on left and right and said "yep its broken" and wrote it on a peice of paper and sent it to FCA and charged FCA $169
