Texas-based Jeep restorer Dennis Collins shows off his supercharged 3.6 V6 JL.

The added 7 lbs of pressure is good for 360-380 HP. That’d put this V6 on par with the 5.7 HEMI.

It is a turn-key job for $10,000. To me, this would be a more realistic mod than a full HEMI swap. Something to consider saving for...for the day the warranty ends.

Check out how fast he engine hits 6,500 RPMs.

Perhaps, but I would not be surprised if you end up spending twice that amount by the time you are done doing it yourself.

Still, it offers a viable alternative for those of us with limited mechanical abilities.

I’ve seen Dennis’s other work: he is a perfectionist to a fault.

I had a local shop here in North Carolina (CDT Performance & Off-road) install a ProCharger in my JL in December 2020. All in for around $8,500. Just over 1,500 miles on it and the ProCharger tune is near perfect. This thing is a beast, love it so far!

Stupid question, but when not driving with your foot buried in the floor, which must be hard NOT to do, did you notice a slight improvement in fuel mileage. I ask this because I've always wondered if a tad more power would make the 3.6 more efficient in the Wrangler.

Ugh, centrifugal superchargers? No thanks. Positive displacement or bust. Centrifrugals should stay attached to turbines IMO.

Looks like minimal fab work to make it compatible with an airbox. Unless the bottom pipe routing precludes that.

Am I missing something here? Hamburger has had their Supercharger out for at least 9 Months at this point, likely more.

Not that the centri's aren't fun in some applications, but the 3.6 could really use some power off the line and a roots blower would really do the trick.
