Tuner company develops supercharger for Chrysler 300C SRT8
Vancouver, British Columbia – A German tuner company has developed a bolt-on supercharger for the high-performance Chrysler 300C SRT8.
The GeigerCars system consists of a belt-driven supercharger with integrated, water cooled intercooler, a high performance exhaust system including special manifolds and steel-bed catalysts, and a recalibrated ECU. The compressor helps the engine to achieve a power increase from the standard 430 hp to about 556 hp at 5,200 rpm. Maximum torque is increased to 679 Nm at 4,800 revs.
The engine conversion reduces the acceleration time from 0 – 100 km/h to about 4.7 seconds, and maximum speed will be 300 km/h plus.
The GeigerCars.de supercharger kit for the 300C SRT8 will be available in the Fall of 2006.
