Easy. Trade it for a Scat Pack and get +110 HP (y) or skip the middleman and go straight to a Hellcat.

Add headers & ported intake manifold cat less mids and e-85 add that to what silver said. Now we’re talking. That’s a lot more $$$ though.
Or what 2150 said.

By time you do all that, probably cheaper to trade for a SP. Especially if you're paying someone for labor too (don't know if that's the case here).

BTW- I'm not trying to shit on your car. Nothing wrong with an R/T. It's just that once you start trying to make any serious additional HP, it usually makes the most sense to trade up to the next level instead of dumping a bunch of money in it that you'll never get back. That goes for the SP too. It makes more sense to trade up to a HC instead of trying to add a blower/etc to a SP. Just my opinion.

Just like going to Diamond Dolls,, once yo start at $150 next thing you know you are at $650 and the double wide has lost 2 tires. Damn sales people and pimps go to the same traders school.

Check out R/T Life on YouTube. He has a 5.7 R/T Charger and it's impressive. He's done a lot but step by step so you can get an idea of what mods will benefit you most for price.

Could be the OP likes his car? Nothing wrong at all with a RT....I had one for a few years and traded up to a 392. When I did, it felt like a whole different car...much more performance oriented and handled a lot better.

-If you can find a slightly used Scat for a good price, it'll probably make more sense to trade yours in for one - if the price is right.

If you really want to keep the RT you have, I'd get a blower package. I know there's kits for the 5.7, and you would only need 5 or 6 pounds of boost to get an extra 100 hp or more. And with a good tune, you should be safe.
