Anyone put a Roe Supercharger on a stock truck?

I am looking at both the Roe and the Paxton kits right now. I know the Paxton can be bolted up to a stock SRT-10 and get good numbers. What about the Roe? I had talked to Roe before the kit was ready for prime time and they were suggesting a full exhaust at the least for supporting mods. If you add the cost of a exhaust system to the Roe it starts getting further away from the paxton kit cost wise. I am not looking for huge numbers just a nice bump in power to make the truck a little more fun. I wanted to go with the Roe but if it's going to end up costing alot more the cost difference may sway me to the Paxton. Thanks for any input.

More air in = more air out.

Any forced induction would benefit from an exhaust rework.

Both Prof, and NBT have them on stock trucks. And by "Stock" I'm referring to the internal parts of the engine. I know Prof has headers, but I'm not sure on NBT.

The one thing I will say is, it does not matter what form of FI you use, you should have headers. If not you will be retaining additional heat in the engine and that is a bad thing.

Yes I have done FI on many vehicles. But because of the cost of exhaust systems for our trucks I was looking at a stepped approach to the build. Buy the supercharger since it is the most expensive part, then later add headers and exhaust work. I know that without the headers etc. I would limit myself but as I stated I am not looking for any huge numbers. This is just my weekend toy.

if i were you, i'd start with the other mods first & leave the supercharger for last.....

Heat is the real enemy of this engine. While I think you will be able to mount a Roe Top Mount Twin Screw without headers, I tend to agree with the post above that suggests going with the Roe as the last mod...I would add...if you are in a relatively cool climate...

I started with the Roe as the end game, but since the Roe was not available, I installed the exhaust system (Mopar long tube, cat delete and magna flow), VEC III, water/meth, 172 Thermo, the Centerforce clutch, Viper Slave and Master Cyl....with those mods I was putting down around 500 rwhp and that is quite a jump from the stock 430 or so...maybe you will be happy with that???

The addition of the Roe took me to 620 rwhp...

But if you feel confident that you can control the heat issue, water/meth as a minimum and a very conservative tune then go with the Roe! 1Fast400 is selling his...make him an offer...

Whatever you do...have a ball and welcome to the RBC, your experience with FI will be greatly welcomed!

Here is a compromise for you. Go with the SC, but dump the Cats or go with Hi-Flow Cats. And also go with a Cat Back exhaust system. That would be enough of an improvement that the risk of damage would be acceptable, at least in my opinion.

Ditto, need to lose the cats with FI. Or at the very least high flows.
