Default Supercharger for 2003 Hemi

Does anyone know of a supercharger kit for the 2003 Dodge Ram 5.7L Hemi? ATI's ProCharger has one for the 2004 model and up but I've been told it is not compatible with the 2003. What is the difference between those two years?

there seems to be alot of threads about superchargers lately. does anyone have one? any pics? im just wondering.....it comes up alot, and everyone asks about it, but who has spent the $3-5000 so far for it? not being a smartass, i am just curious as to how it would look under the hood with all the wiring, injection, etc.

I have done extensive research finding out why the supercharger is for an 04 and not an 03. I talked with Procharger on the phone 3 times because they did not even know the exact reason why. Finally after 4 days I got an answer. I was told that the the engines and the PCM ECM where identical except for the lack of an EGR valve but they do not have the tuning for the install for an 03. You can put the super charger on but you have to take it to a speed shop for a custom tune...

I'd stay away from Paxton. i don't like belt drives.

Procharger is a nice set-up but runs $5600 for the complete kit. Should gain a slid 100rwhp and possibly 125rwtq out of 6 or 8psi. I wouldn't run anymore than that on stock block
