There are so many different catchy quotes we could have put here, it was hard to stick to just one. Though no matter what phrase we use it ends up meaning the same thing.
If you like working in a “fast paced” environment full of fellow car enthusiasts, then ProCharger is looking for you! With a record-setting year behind us in 2014 (on and off the race track), we are looking for well qualified people to fill positions here at our Kansas City facility, to keep growing our 20 year trend!

When trying to determine the most reliable and cost-effective method of adding horsepower to a HEMI-powered car or truck, one must consider the power adder that catapults the WORLD’S FASTEST GEN III HEMI to its 6-second passes. Thus, consider nothing less than a ProCharger supercharger of course! If Rob Goss uses ProCharger power to push his HEMI to record-breaking passes at the track, just think of what ProCharger can do to the HEMI in your very own garage.
For years, the ProCharger HO Intercooled Supercharger System has been delivering big power numbers to hundreds of HEMI customers, but now the time has come for the next evolution of ProCharger power–the Stage II Dedicated Drive System and tuner kit for 6.4L/392 HEMI’s! So if you are aching for 800, 900, 1000, even 1200+ HP from your HEMI-powered monster, we have your solution.
The ProCharger Stage II Supercharger offering features an all new 8-rib dedicated drive system and race intercooler upgrade for 6.4L and 5.7L (air-to-air race intercooler coming soon for 6.1L also). Why should this be music to your ears? Let us explain:
ProCharger designed this dedicated 8-rib system to have maximum belt wrap in order to support the truly power hungry. The bracket system fits head units up to F-1A-94 without modifications to the car, which means no cutting or trimming with a blower that can support 1,200+ HP!
(Shown with P-1SC-1)
Even though this system is perfect for “race” applications, it can still be used with a P-1SC-1 at lower boost levels for mild street applications. The OEM-quality fit and finish is what you’d expect from the ProCharger engineering department, as illustrated in the image below.
In order to support the power levels made possible by the Stage II System, ProCharger now also offers a Race Intercooler option for both the 6.4L and 5.7L HEMI platforms (6.1L coming soon). Below is an image of this new huge intercooler mounted behind the factory bumper cover because, you guessed it, no trimming or cutting is required to fit this highly effective intercooler behind the bumper, thanks to a custom ProCharger design built just for this application. That’s great news for anyone who may want to return their car back to stock down the road.
This animation shows the two intercooler options available for the 2011+ 6.4L SRT Challenger. The HO intercooler features a high flow, top-to-bottom core design that maximizes available airflow through the car’s front fascia. However, for those pushing higher boost and horsepower levels, the Race Intercooler option with 970 cubic inch core is also available.
Stage II Intercooler = 423 cubic/inch Cooling Core
Race Intercooler = 970 cubic/inch Cooling Core
For more details on ProCharger intercooler design and testing, check out our previous blog HERE.
Even though we have only just announced this Stage 2 dedicated 8-rib system, it deserves to be said that ProCharger customers have been making HUGE power with the standard HO Intercooled Shared Drive System for years. In fact, here’s one example of a 1000HP ProCharger-powered HEMI, known as BLACK WIDOW STIG, which has been tearing up 1/2 mile and 1/8th mile events 996 RWHP!
Another example of the ProCharger HO System, with Race Intercooler upgrade, is this 100% stock 2011 Challenger. With no modifications other then the ProCharger system, this heavy weight Dodge rips off nearly 10 second 1/4 mile times, with an amazing 127mph trap speed. Remember the beauty of a ProCharger system, is that these supercharger systems come 100% complete ready to bolt on, in your garage with common hand tools. Imagine leaving the dealership on Friday night with a 470hp stock Challenger, and by Saturday evening be driving a 670HP+ MONSTER!

The new 2015 Mustang is a great step forward in the pedigree of horses that have come before it. However, if you are looking to turn your 2015 Mustang into an all out Clydesdale, a horse known well for its strength and power, then ProCharger can help you take it to the next level. If 600+ ground pounding horses sounds good to you, keep reading.
Maybe owning a 600+ HP supercharged Mustang wasn’t on your New Year’s resolutions list, but this blog might just change that. ProCharger systems are not only big power producers, but they are also easy on the wallet. Not to mention with an ultra-easy installation, about 5 hours, you will be out enjoying your supercharged Stang the SAME day you start putting it on! So if you have a set of these, you could be only a few hours away from 600+ HP!
The “Black Finish” option, looks outstanding!
With the fleet of ProCharger “test” stangs (auto and stick), we put in the days and miles of R&D testing needed to ensure you would have a trouble-free system, for years of durable supercharger ownership. Lets dive into some of the details about what sets the ProCharger HO system apart from the rest of the “herd.”
When designing a shared-drive system, maximum belt wrap, belt tension, and optimum placement of the supercharger are all important parts of the equation, and the ProCharger drive system delivers. And for those wanting to modify the boost level to match other performance modifications to their car, we mad sure the drive belt and supercharger pulley can be changed in a few minutes, without having to remove the supercharger or any other parts.
This ultra-rugged bracket is constructed from solid billet aluminum, carved out on our industrial CNC machines. The bracket is mounted using multiple mounting locations, spanning across the driver’s side of the coyote engine to ensure strength and rigidity. All mounting locations utilize factory bolt holes, so no drilling or tapping is required.
The ProCharger supercharger system was designed so that you don’t have to cut, trim, modify any OEM part of your Mustang, so that the entire system can be removed, leaving no trace that it was ever even there. No cutting means your fan and radiator remain 100% unchanged to make sure the cooling system works 100% as intended. Thanks to ProCharger’s proven and patented self-contained head unit, no oil lines are needed and you don’t have to tap the oil pan. All this not only makes it easy to return to your 2015 Mustang back to stock, but it also ensures that your install with be fast and easy.
ProCharger engineers took their time coming up with the perfect air-to-air intercooler options for the new Mustang platform. They started by having two custom intercooler cores made to maximize the surface area available in the front end. Whether you install the HO system or the soon-to-be-released Stage II system, each air-to-air intercooler is designed to be the most effective possible. Also, thanks to the new front end design of this platform, we are able to utilize a huge 4″ cold air intake for the supercharger!
100% COMPLETE SYSTEM:
For the DIY crowd that likes doing their own supercharger installs at home, the ProCharger supercharger system comes with every part you need, from to easy-to-read, full color installation manual, to the ECU/PCM tuning and handheld programmer.
STAGE 2 SYSTEM: Shipping 01/30/15
- Dedicated 8-Rib drive system
- Upgradable to 1,225 HP F-1R Head Unit
- Larger and thicker air-to-air intercooler

They say that things get better with age. It seems the saying holds true for the PRI Trade Show in Indianapolis, because each year the show gets better and pushes the bar even higher. This year’s show was no different, with an incredible amount of traffic at both the event and in the ProCharger booth, and a whole host of amazing racers and champions (past and present) stopping by to share their stories. An insane amount of new products were released to push all forms of motorsports to the next level. As far as we’re concerned, this year’s show was the best one yet! (Think we will say that again next year? We sure hope so.)
In this blog we will cover some of the highlights in case you couldn’t join us at the show. If you came to the show to see new products, ProCharger had you covered. If you wanted to chat with racers and champs, ProCharger had you covered there as well. If you came just to see a booth packed full of supercharged mechanical art and technology, ProCharger DELIVERED.
First off, why not start off with a great piece of digital footage. This video helps illustrate the years of pride and accomplishments ProCharger racers achieved over the past 15 years. Without all of you racers, this wouldn’t be possible, so here is a quick “Thank You” and we hope you enjoy this video.
This year, ProCharger superchargers wanted to give our 2014 season Champions something to take home again. A little token of our appreciation for their hard work and dedication to their sport. Some of the Champions had the chance to stop by the PRI booth, and we got to snag our photos with these guys. (In no particular order)
Also stopping by the booth were previous Champions such as
And many more!
The NMRA Championship awards ceremony is always a good time. For 15 years, ProCharger has helped racers get to this stage!
One of the most talked about engines on display was that of APD built 548″ blow through carb Chevy, featuring the F-1X-12RD RaceDrive™ unit and brand new Racing Bell Mouth. This 2000 HP engine not only looks the part, but backs it up with stunning performance on the NHRA circuit where it sits between the frame rails of Greg Curtis’s Top Dragster.
We hope to see a lot of dragsters making the switch from nitrous oxide to ProCharger boost, thanks to simple, reliable and consistent, big power combos such as this. For more info on the RaceDrive, check out our earlier blog here.
545 Cube BBC packing 1,930HP at 8,100rpm! from APD
At some shows the motors on display are just that, displays. However this motor has already been as fast as 3.99 in the 1/8th and 6.20’s in the 1/4 in testing. Check out this video of it pulling the wheels on this dragster!
Another huge talking point (Literally) was the new Racing Bellmouth for our 2015 racing supercharger line up. These bells have been designed with countless hours of airflow testing, each with specific dimensions engineered and mathematically optimized for its respective compressor. This attention to detail helps to create the highest-flowing inlet possible, and gives our “Heads-up” racers the extra “edge” on the competition for the next race season. These bellmouths are made from billet CNC aluminum and are anodized and laser etched for a rugged, durable finish.

Another show stopper in the crowd was the 825+ rwhp Corvette C7 in the EFILive / Vengeance Racing Booth. This car features a ProCharger F-1A, Cam, and lots of other goodies. Check out more details on this car by clicking HERE
The guys over at Haltech had one of the coolest engines on display to show off their new ECU line up. And YES, this ProCharger powered Coyote engine is 100% functional down to the gas pedal mounted to the front of it! Talk about an attention grabber, to bad the staff at the PRI show won’t allow it to be fired up inside the building.
We can’t say enough about what a great year its been. The products introduced last year have continued to perform beyond expectations this year, ProCharger racers have continued setting records and winning championships, and the ProCharger-Owner community keeps expanding, all helping to build an all-around stunning year in 2014.
And even though PRI just ended, we already can’t wait until next year!

It’s no secret that ProCharger superchargers get used in all sorts of applications, with power levels ranging from 90HP to 3,500+HP! To meet those power levels, there are different methods to drive the supercharger such as belt drives, cog drives, gear drives and now the RaceDrive™. A few years ago standard “gear drive” or “direct drive” systems for ProChargers started to become mainstream at ultra-high HP racing applications. However, the placement of the supercharger wasn’t ideal for all applications, as it was lower than desired for some applications and not sufficiently compact for applications such as dragsters. ProCharger created a compact solution to this problem by integrating the drive system into the blower itself. Now, for those looking for the ultimate in durability at extreme power levels–we introduce the new ProCharger RaceDrive.
The F-1X-12 supercharger produced 2 national championships and 4 records in the 2014 season. It demonstrated ProCharger durability at extreme horsepower levels by not having a single unit fail the entire season. This same F-1X-12 winning design is now combined with the ProCharger RaceDrive to create a unique new package for those looking for a reliable, consistent solution to their 1,500+ HP needs.
With its ultra-compact design, the ProCharger RaceDrive allows racers with tight engine packaging (including rail dragsters) to now run a ProCharger system without having to make chassis modifications! With a higher and more shallow mounting location, it allows more room for the steering rack and other suspension components.
Another feature of the ProCharger RaceDrive is (3) accessory drive points, or power take off points (PTO). These can be used to run oil pumps, fuel pumps, or other necessary engine accessories. To make sure our customers get exactly the right boost level for their combination, the RaceDrive is also offered in 40 different gear ratios! These gear ratios are quickly and easily changed by simply removing the front cover, and replacing the 10 spline quick-change gear sets with a new pair.
The union between the engines crankshaft and the supercharger is made with a dual-sided steel coupler, with vibration absorbing rubber. This connection is not only compact, but helps take the shock loads out of rapid RPM changes in the drive system. And with no belts to fail, our customers can enjoy years of worry-free, constant operation from their supercharger unit.
Chuck DeMory Jr. runs his Mustang in NMCA Pro Mod/Pro Street with this ProCharger RaceDrive-powered ride. This car has gone as quick as 6.30’s already, and we look forward to even more quick times out of this car in the 2015 season.
Advanced Product Design is another satisfied customer, with their growing list of ProCharger RaceDrive-powered dragsters. Joe Hessling at APD had a great quote that sums up what the RaceDrive delivers perfectly:
“There are a lot of guys in Top Dragster, Top Sportsman, and the fast bracket racing world that are tired of hurting pistons and other parts in their nitrous motors. In between rounds you’re changing bottles, changing jets, pulling spark plugs—but the ProCharger setup, once you have it all ironed out, is a much simpler combination to operate and maintain…”
ON DISPLAY AT PRI:
If you happen to be in the Indianapolis area, stop by our booth at the PRI (Performance Racing Industry) Tradeshow! We are not only featuring the amazing ride of Eric Gustafson, winner of 2 National Championships this season, but also the new RaceDrive, which is on display with our new Racing Bellmouth for heads up racing applications.
FOR MORE INFO:
We could go on for days describing the technical details of the RaceDrive, but luckily we don’t have to because the fine folks over at DragZine already did that for us. Take a moment to click this DragZine RaceDrive Tech link for the ultimate write up on this exciting new product!

With the PRI show just around the corner, we wanted to give you a sneak peak of the featured car in our booth this year. ProCharger will be proudly displaying the LSx powered Ford Mustang owned by Eric Gustafson and the R&E Racing crew. The accomplishments this car stacked up over this year have just have been amazing.
- 2 Class Championships in 2014
- 2 National Records
- Event win at Street Car Super Nationals
- Record setting runs all year
Come stop by booth #101 to get an up close look into what makes this LSX powered Stang Fly!
Every year for the past 16 years ProCharger has come to the PRI show announcing new products for the upcoming racing season, and the 2014 show will be no different. This year alone, half of the championships were won using products that we released in the past year.
In fact the F-1X-12 alone produced 2 championships and 4 national records, with the F-1X-12 demonstrating ProCharger durability at extreme horsepower levels by not having a single unit fail the entire season. Check out our PRI Blog HERE for a map to our booth!
(Click for a Video of Rob Goss’s x275 Record 6.97 with F-1X)
2014 was a big year for so many ProCharger-powered racers, that it’s been hard to keep track of all the records, event wins, #1 qualifiers, etc, and it would take a much longer blog post to list them all. However, the theme from this year is that no matter if it has 4 wheels or 2, big tires or small radials, ProCharger-powered machines win races, set records, and win Championships. Having a highly efficient, reliable supercharger at the demanding HP levels of heads up racing means more time to focus on suspension tuning and getting the car down the track.
ProCharger knows the amount of hard work and dedication that goes into each race season, so from all of us at ProCharger, here’s a true “Congratulations” to all ProCharger powered racers!

Posted on November 14th, 2014 by admin
For 20 years ProCharger has been dedicated to bringing you the best supercharger systems for GM trucks year after year. Whether you have a carbureted classic or a new modern-EFI workhorse, ProCharger has you covered all the way to 2014!
The all new trucks from GM not only had a change in the styling department, but also in the switch to the direct injection motors for the 5.3L and 6.2L. This switch to “DI” helps keep horsepower levels and fuel economy up, but that doesn’t mean there’s no room for BOOST!
Thankfully ProCharger is well versed in the direct injection engine platforms from GM, thanks to the countless hours of supercharger and intercooler R&D that lead to our amazing Corvette C7 supercharger system for the LT-1 engine platform.
Combining our highly efficient P-1SC-1 head unit with a robust CNC billet bracket system, we are proud to offer an air-to-air intercooled supercharger system that is not only easy enough to install in your garage in a matter of hours, but it is also designed to last the life of the truck. After installing your system (included handheld tuning), power gains of up to or over 45% are possible on otherwise stock trucks with high quality pump gas. Thats right, an extra 45% that you can bolt on in your garage with common hand tools.
45% More towing power
45% More power to pass
45% More weekend fun,
45% More off-roading, dirt-throwing, mud-slinging POWER!
(Click for larger Image)
This system comes standard with a massive 3-core air-to-air intercooler that can be mounted horizontally underneath the truck. One of the focal points of this new 2014 body style is the large front grill which can be seen in the above photo featuring the vertical intercooler option. These ProCharger intercoolers offer industry-leading cool charge air temperatures for maximum horsepower and engine reliability when used with pump gas.
Inside the engine bay, ProCharger also offers two supercharger inlet options, which are illustrated in the images below. The rear inlet provides the lowest restriction possible for racing applications. And the optional forward inlet provides cool air charge for the everyday driver/tower/hauler.

For those that are looking to personalize their system even more, your ProCharger supercharger bracket and headunit can be ordered in three different finishes: Satin, Polished, or Satin Black. For more details about options and system highlights please visit our website HERE.
So if a BOOST of 45%+ more horsepower sounds like something you need in your 2014 GM Truck, please contact your ProCharger centrifugal supercharger dealer, or call us directly at (913) 338-2886. (SUV’s info coming soon)
Here is a YouTube video we found of a customer, showing off his ProCharged 2014 on the Dyno. Where it puts down over 470rwhp on just 6psi of boost.
And another shot, of it ripping through the gears!
Look at the 0-60 time, awesome for a full size 4 door truck!
