Supercharged 6.1L G3 HEMI Build

It's a new world and a new generation. Thanks to the new generation Chrysler Hemi, that word is still spoken with reverence in Mopar circles. But Adrian Saavedra decided that even with 6.1L of new Hemi, his engine it needed to be supercharged - but not with a traditional 6-71 Roots blower. That's the old school way. Today's approach means adding a stroker crank that bumps the 6.1L (371ci) motor up to 417ci and a ProCharger centrifugal supercharger that snuggles down under the stock hood of Adrian's '09 Challenger. Combine it with a bazillion electrons making decisions about everything except where to have for lunch and all that power can be harnessed for a daily-driven car that is actually fun to drive – even to work!

Adrian took his blower/stroker idea to Superior Automotive where owner Joe Jill has been perfecting these late model Mopars to both make big power and survive the daily grind of the boulevard gran prix. Superior started with the stock 6.1L block and added a Callies stroker crank, rods, and dished Ross street pistons that all work together with a mild hydraulic roller from Comp Cams. While all the big, romantic parts like a ProCharger F1A centrifugal supercharger and a crank with a long arm make all the power, often it's those littlest details that make the difference betweendetermine if an engine that lives a long, healthy and powerful life, anord one that ends up scattering its guts all over Lincoln Avenue at the top of Second gear. Superior was enthusiastic about showing us how they've developed a couple of simple cures for hemi valvetrain snafus. We'll cover all these goodies along with a few other little tech bits that make the difference between a hacked Hhemi and a professionally-built street engine. Your mother probably warned you that bad girls are fast and easy because they never last. Well, in this case, this fast girl is there for the long run. All you have to do is pay attention to her needs.

Great build but the hack job clearance cut on the radiator frame looks like crap!
