    Has anyone tried to purchase a Super Charger for their 392 2015? I tried and have been told the aftermarket cannot crack the tuner computer program on the 2015 models.
    I speculate Dodge does not want the 392 buyer to accomplish getting 600-650 HP for an extra 6-8 grand and have a hell of a car with the technology package. And still be ahead by 10 grand from a Hellcat. Between personal property tax, insurance, gas guzzler tax your ahead by a lot. And not here to criticize the Hellcat. I want the technology package and just have a hard time justifying 70k plus for a DODGE. And yes I can afford the Hellcat and can have a Charger and Challenger Hellcat which I passed on both. In the end I think the Super Charger for the 392 will come available and be a nice package.
    And here to support all the Hellcat family. Just looking for thoughts on the availability of the Super Charger for the 15, 392

    as with any new car, it just takes time. I am sure there will be someone to get the code cracked soon enough. Coming from Ford for me it is just weird that it takes so long and that it seems Dodge works so hard to keep the aftermarket at bay where as Ford supports and endorses the aftermarket companies.

    Try calling Fairfield Dodge in Muncy, PA. Talk with Steve Kaiser. They are a performance center and might be able to help.

    You know, I think this could be an option. I bet they crack the code before I get my Hellcat! Save myself a few bucks.

    Dodge's ECM has been encrypted for a while now. One of they reasons you dont see many hemi crate engines in swapped cars, along with their prohibitive costs. It will take awhile for the ECM to be cracked by most 3rd party party manufacturers, probably a year before its widespread, I'll probably wait for an Edelbrock with a tuner.

    Like others said, it just takes time. Diablo etc, they will crack it at some point, just takes time like it usually does.

    How long do you think that 392 will hold up at 650 HP?

    To be honest the 70k and warranty is way under priced. Between parts, labor, tune and voided warranty, it wouldn't add up to save you money in the long run. You are better off with nitrous and use it when u race and if u gotta visit the dealer you can pull it out much easier then a supercharger. If you go the nitrous route, I can get you a discount, as I am Sponsored by nx express. And I can also get you a Great deal for any hellcat family forum
    Member. pm me if interested.

    Your 392 not designed for forced induction, to do it properly pulling the pistons,rods etc your better ahead with a hellcat sorry. 6-8g just a slapped on.

    Totally agree, I live in California and the Hennessey kits (and others) that are available do not pass our smog laws! The Hellcat passes smog and has a warranty: well worth the price.

    Love the "slap a S/C on it for $6,000-$8,000" and boom, they think they have a value packaged Hellcat and are somehow smarter than "all of us suckers" that were dooped into paying $70k.

    Nevermind all of the extra reinforcing, cooling and added engineering that went into the Hellcat or the fact that it is fully warrantied.

    No, no... S/C your 392 and cross those fingers. I'm sure you or some aftermarket shop knows how to tune these motors better than the entire team over at SRT. :rolleyes:

    KABOOOOM.
