    Do they make an aftermarket Turbo Charger for a 2003 Ram 1500 4.7L V8

    sure. but you don't wanna do that if it's your daily driver, or otherwise rely on the vehicle.

    Yeah, if you're going to go with forced induction on a car not built for it, you're better off getting a supercharger. It's simpler and the pressure doesn't fluctuate as wildly as it does with a turbocharger, so the pressure-control system doesn't have to be as elegant or precise.

    Hell, even on a car that comes with a turbo, it's a bitch trying to get it tuned right if you don't happen to be rich, or own a shop with a dyno.
