Lingenfelter Performance Engineering (LPE) has launched its Dodge Challenger Supercharger Package for 2008-2010 cars with standard or SRT HEMI engines. It includes a Magnuson TVS 2300 intercooled supercharger system, with a black powdercoat finish; a 160-degree thermostat; properly sized fuel injectors; and a high flow air intake system.

The package comes with installation, testing, custom calibration, and before and after chassis dyno reports.
