Building on 10 years of LS7 (427) supercharging experience, ProCharger is about to release the ULTIMATE supercharger system for the new Camaro Z/28!
GM designed this new Camaro Z/28 to follow in the legendary footsteps of its 1967 counterpart. Lap after lap domination was at the front of GM’s mind when designing this new car, and that is exactly what was on our minds as well.
- No Permanent Modifications (Can be fully reversed)
- Natural, Smooth, Predictable, Consistent power
- No lag, No delay, No heat soak, or Power Fade.
- Unmatched HP gains, on pump gas
- Multiple power levels, and intercoolers
STAY TUNED, to see when more details on this system unfold, as ProCharger helps bring your track toy to a whole new level, with the confidence in a company backed by 20 years of Forced Induction history.
If your reading this blog we know two things…
1) You love these new coyote engines.
2) You love boost. (ProCharged Boost)
So lets take a moment to dive into some notable powerhouse coyotes from across the country that are packing ProCharger superchargers. Notice we just said “Coyote” and not a specific model year, since obvious this motor is starting to pop up in all sorts of platforms.
LET THE HORSEPOWER BEGIN:
Where to start? How about a 100% stock OEM coyote engine in a 3,800lb street car, laying down 9.20’s in the 1/4mile? Bet we have your attention now!
Yes Randy Christian and his D-1SC supercharged Mustang is making huge waves on the internet. Not only is the engine 100% OEM stock, with no changes other than the BOSS302 intake, but also still has the stock transmission as well, with only a converter change. Randy enjoys driving this car to work just as much as ripping off low 9 second passes, proving that heavy weight street cars with mild modifications can make a BIG impression at the track. Randy’s car works its BMR suspension to the max, trying to hold back all of that ProCharged horsepower.

Another car we can’t wait to see get better dialed in is the F-1X ProCharger powered machine of Kesatie Motorsports. This car is already making over 840 rwhp through the T400 transmission along with trap speeds of over 158 MPH! If that MPH doesn’t get you excited, you might want to check your pulse. This car recently was the #2 qualifier in the Modular Muscle class, and has a lot more room to grow thanks to its Aluminator crate motor, ported heads, and Comp camshafts. We have a feeling this car is going to be one to keep our eyes on. Enjoy some track videos, and dyno videos below.
(20psi pull, 12deg timing, shutting off at 6,500)
The new 2015 Mustang body style is really hitting the market strong as well as the matching ProCharger HO and Stage 2 systems to go with it. With so many supercharger systems flying out the door for this new body style, we knew it wasn’t going to be long before some HUGE power numbers were going to be showing up. One of the 700+ rwhp cars that we featured in this BLOG is starting to hit the track for some shake down passes. The 2015 campaigned by Amazon Tuning Solutions has picked up sponsors such as HPTuners and Gulf Racing Fuels for this 2015 season. The best part about this car is that its running the ProCharger HO system on it. Thats right, this car isn’t even running the Stage 2 system yet!
YES, over 700 RWHP on the HO ProCharger system!

If you were lucky enough to make it to the track for the NMRA season opener, the following Coyote Mustangs surely would have got your attention. Since everyone enjoys a tight race, how about (2) ProCharger cars in the Coyote Modified class having nearly IDENTICAL qualifying times?
Joe Guertin email@example.com
“Dyno” Joe Cram firstname.lastname@example.org
It doesn’t get much closer then that folks!
Joe Guertin runs his ProCharger powered Coyote motor in his 1985 LX Coupe to get the job done. This car was prepped by CRE Performance’s Chet Caminita (Also Guertin’s crew chief). The coupe relies on UPR Products for suspension components, which are responsible for planting the power from a MPR-built (Tim Eichorn) Coyote engine with a ProCharger F-1A supercharger. Behind the built Coyote is a C4 with a PTC torque converter. Cal Hartline from Hartline Performance will be handling the tuning on the car, which will rely on a FAST XFI system. Learn more about this car HERE.
“Dyno” Joe Cram finished last years season in 3rd place for Coyote Modified, however as explained in THIS ARTICLE, is planning on making a BIG impression in 2015. Joe’s car uses a ProCharger F-1A to get the job done, with the DeatschWerks fuel injectors and spark handled by a FAST XFI system, and tuning by Cal Hartline. However thats about where the similarities between these two cars stop. The engine build job on DynoJoes car was handled by Holbrook Racing engines. A TH400 transmission is backed by a converter by ATF, and other goodies from EXEDY. Suspension duties are handled by Madman and Company and Team Z.
Another 700+ HP 2015 Mustang on the property at this race was that of Blow By Racing. When picking a power adder for their shop car, BBR chose the ProCharger HO system with D-1SC. Combined with a set of headers and a blend of good fuel, this car laid down over 708rwhp on the dyno! This street car is sure to get a LOT of attention, and make sure that BBR shop owner will have a permanent smile on his face.
We can’t have a blog about Coyote powered cars, and not have one BOSS 302. So here is a great example of a car making BIG power, even through a 4r70w automatic transmission. Blow by Racing was in charge of this build for car owner Clint Bates, to create the ultimate street car for him to drive at home in Oklahoma. With the 4r70w transmission swap also came a bunch of supporting modifications to keep the power planted from the cog driven F-1A supercharger. With only 17 psi of boost, this car is cranking out over 753 rwhp on the dyno through the AUTO! This car is the ultimate example of a 9 second daily driver!
To round out this blog, lets finish it up with a 2015 car running a mild 10.6 psi of boost and laying down 667 rwhp on 93 octane! This cars owner trusted Evolution Performance to build this amazing daily driver. Combining a ProCharger HO system with D-1SC upgrade, larger injectors, fuel pump booster, and a custom tune by Jon Lund, this car straight delivers! Follow this car on the net, at this link HERE.

We could go on for days about all the high HP ProCharger supercharged Coyotes running around, however we had to end this blog somewhere. We hope you enjoyed the variety of this blog, and are as excited about boosting these Coyote motors as we are. If you have any questions on how to get your Coyote motor from stock to over 1,000+ HP, just drop us a line at 913-338-2886 or email@example.com
The internet is literally filled with street driven ProCharger supercharged C5 and C6 Corvettes ranging from 500HP to mind bending 1500HP! Well the day is now upon us, and high HP C7’s is the new normal. Obviously it’s common for us to talk about race cars with over 1000HP, however we are talking about street cars here, with full interiors, stereos, AC, the works. When ProCharger developed it’s supercharger kit for the C7 vette we were not kidding when we stated we designed anticipating these C7 making big power.
Since ProCharger makes so many different models of superchargers, our base kit is often upgraded to large head units right out of the gate. However, everyone always asks “How much power can I make with the stock kit?” Well, one C7 owner proved to us that 837 rwhp is possible with the 100% stock P-1SC-1 system! Yes you read that correctly, over 800 rwhp from the same system that we send out the door for every turn key system, with a few small additional mods. (Cam, Custom tuning, exhaust, and Methanol Injection for added fueling) Congratulations to car owner Jeff Tomi (tech369) and Houston House of Power /Chucks Tuning.
Another example of this exact combination listed above, is that from Cunningham Motorsports. Again taking the P-1SC-1 ProCharger head unit that comes standard with the system, and laying down over 723 rwhp with just 10.6psi of boost! Again this car is the same as above, exhaust, cam, meth system. This car has not only been featured in ChevyBOOST magazine, but also runs 10.1@140 in the quarter mile! Car is built for standing 1/2 mile, and mile events, so look for it around the net.
OK, so here is another “mild” build, however, this time features basically the same modifications as the cars above. On this C7, no methanol for added fuel, and VERY low boost. Car owner Jessica Barton and her Real Street Performance built C7 laid down 683 rwhp on just 6.5psi of boost! Jessica upgraded her system to a D-1SC headunit for plans of really pushing the power level up down the road, but so far is beyond happy with her power numbers on just pump gas alone.
Here is a build again very similar to the first car listed in this blog, meaning the same simple modifications. However, car owner Justin Keith had big plans for a built motor later on and opted for the F-1A ProCharger supercharger right out of the gate! Obviously this blower is a little over kill it would seem for a stock short block car (yes other then the cam shaft, this motor is all OEM GM) however that hasn’t stopped Justin from laying down over 815rwhp! The interesting thing about this car, is Justin has it set up to run E85 fuel, which is a bit tricky on these direct injection motors. To learn more about this car, click on the write up VETTE magazine recently did on it. CLICK HERE FOR LINK
Or hear it LIVE, on the Dyno of Midwest Street Cars.
(Yes, of the famed TV Show “Street Outlaws”)
Remember all of these cars listed in this blog are on the OEM stock shortblocks just as they came from GM. Again these are NOT built motors, which really shows how amazing these new C7’s really are. OK, now that we have covered the 600,700, and 800 rwhp cars how about one last car that is sneaking into the ultra high HP club, this time to the tune of 908 rwhp on Pump Gas (plus Meth for fueling) Car owner Brandon, really has a wicked machine on his hands. This car is actually a carbon copy to the red car listed above, however is running on 93 pump gas instead of E-85. This C7 of Brandon’s also features a F-1A supercharger headunit in anticipation of higher HP numbers in the future.
And the video of the car on the Dyno. (Looks like a bit of wheel spin even)
Whats amazing about all of these cars listed above, is not only are they all on the factory OEM short blocks, but the modifications are very minor for these power levels. All these cars are also running 100% unmodified ProCharger supercharger kits. All these cars listed above are using the ProCharger Air-to-Air intercooler in the vertical mounting configuration. All cars listed are running the 8 rib drive belt system that comes standard on this application.
No matter your power goals are with your C7 Corvette, ProCharger has a supercharger for you! Drop us at a line at 913-338-2886 or firstname.lastname@example.org and let us help you make your goal reality!
With Daytona bike week right around the corner, riding season is kicking off. If you are thinking about heading to Daytona, be sure to stop by and see Kendall Johnson Customs on Beach Street or Fat Bagger Inc inside the Destination Daytona vendor area. Both locations will be selling and installing ProCharger Intercooled Superchargers right at the show.
Also be sure to check out the ProCharger Sponsored Ultimate Bagger Show where the Stock Class winner will take home a $500 certificate towards the purchase of a V-Twin kit or system direct from ProCharger.
ProCharger power under construction
And speaking of riding season, there are always crazy new builds pushing the envelope of what is possible. Here are a few bad ass builds hitting the streets at Daytona Bike Week.
Kendall Johnson Customs 300HP+
Roland Sands Designs
If you’ve been thinking about adding 50 – 80+ rear wheel horsepower to your bike, there is no better time. ProCharger has a bolt-on self-contained, intercooled supercharger system available for virtually every model of air-cooled “Big Twin” H-D motorcycles from the latest 2015 H-D bikes to certain 1994 models. With this extensive line-up it means more people than ever can experience the same jaw dropping power and show quality look of a ProCharger Supercharger system.
Going beyond just class sponsorships, ProCharger is also proud to announce that we are adding (2) more contingency payouts in the X275 series and WCHRA! That’s in addition to also paying contingency in NMCA, as well as NMRA, PSCA and NMCA West.
We didn’t just stop at cars either, with ProCharger superchargers now powering all sorts of Harley, Victory, Suzuki and other motorcycles. We are also proud to announce sponsorship of the following events.
For months we have heard truck owners BEGGING us for more i-1 supercharger systems, since we released them for the Ford Raptors. Well for the 2007-2013 1500/2500HD GM/GMC owners the wait is OVER!
When asking the question, “Why does a person own a truck?” the answer is simple. It’s because we want a vehicle that can do anything and everything. As a truck owner we want to be able to haul friends/family, we want to be able to tow toys around, we may need to throw stuff in the bed, and to top it all off we still want our trucks to be FAST!
So with the diversity of how a truck gets used, doesn’t it make sense that your power adder should be just as versatile? Of course you do, which is why ProCharger invented the award winning i-1 supercharger. With a simple “swipe” of the finger on your touch screen you can not only dial in the boost that best fits what you are doing, but also the boost curve itself!
(Raptor Dash Shown)
This 2007-2013 GM Truck/SUV system has two intercooler location options, horizontal and vertical. The horizontal unit is mounted below the truck for those that prefer the “stealth” look, and the vertical unit is mounted behind the grill for those looking to make a statement. For customers wanting to push the HP levels and boost levels up, an even larger vertical intercooler can be purchased.
For those of you with the HD trucks we haven’t forgot about you either. We will be rolling out the i-1 supercharger system for the GM 2500 trucks with the rock solid 6.0L engine platform as well.
ProCharger is also happy to announce the release of the Ford F-150 i-1 supercharger system for trucks with the optional 6.2L engine. (Not just Raptors) Here is a little video by the crew at MAK Performance. They installed a Raptor kit onto a Harley F-150, that happens to share the same 6.2L engine that the Raptor comes with. In this video you can hear the blower changing modes at idle speed. If you listen close you can hear the impeller speed speed up, and slow down. Pretty cool video, thanks MAK for putting it out there!
Also, while on the topic, ProCharger i-1 supercharger systems for 2011-14 5.0 F-150’s are currently in development and will begin shipping in the spring.
The ProCharger i-1 supercharger system not only delivers performance, but simplicity.
- Easy bolt on install
The system comes to your door with everything you need to bolt the system on in your garage. No complicated exhaust work, No cutting or trimming, No fabrication, No hassle. Even the simple air-to-air intercooler is a bolt on item, vs. time consuming air to water intercooler installs. For the i-1 itself, a simple plug-n-play harness is provided to connect the i-1 supercharger to the programmable control box
- Programable Boost Levels
Not only are the boost levels programable, but they are also adjustable on the fly from inside the cab via the touch screen or dial. No pulley changes, No boost controllers, No drama. Imagine you are towing a 7,000lb trailer, and get in an area with bad fuel where running full boost isn’t possible. With the i-1 you can instantly turn down the boost, to make sure your engine is protected even in a situation such as this.
- Programable Boost Curve
The i-1 supercharger not only allows a person to pick the boost level of their choosing, but also the “curve” of how the boost comes in. Having this ability can help you tailor your curve for traction limited conditions or towing.
- Large air-to-air intercooler
For the best cooling of the charge air going into your motor, the i-1 features a large highly effective air-to-air intercooler in the system. These intercoolers easily bolt right in, and are not complicated with no water reservoirs to fill/bleed and no pumps to fail.
- MPG Increases
Thanks to the efficient design of our supercharger and quality ECU tuning, many of our customers report great gains in fuel economy. Not many people purchase a supercharger to save a few $$ at the gas pump. Though its a good peace of mind to know your install is not going to hurt you at the gas station either.
So if you are a truck owner and are ready for the Ultimate Power Adder, drop us a line at 913-338-2886 or email@example.com. We will be happy to answer any questions you may have, and refer you to a ProCharger dealer nearest you!
With these big power cars becoming the norm nowadays, ProCharger has added a Stage II C6 Corvette system to the product lineup. Read on to find out the differences between the Stage II system and the HO system.
With big power comes the need for big airflow to the blower. The Stage II Corvette system will come with a 4.00″ inlet tube combined with a high-flowing, reusable air filter.
DIRECT DRIVE SYSTEM:
A challenge with high HP C6 supercharger systems is combating serpentine belt slip. The longer the belt, the more it will stretch as power is applied to it. To keep the ProCharger drive belt short, we have incorporated a dedicated belt drive into the new Stage II system. The dedicated belt drive works by separating the supercharger and accessories from the single drive belt and runs them on belts of their own. The supercharger runs a dedicated belt directly to the factory balancer, and the accessories are driven by a new power transfer drive system that allows them to run on a different belt. By adding a dedicated drive belt system for the ProCharger, we are able to decrease the overall belt length by over 40%, creating an ultra-strong grip, which in turn leads to more consistent boost levels and less belt slip.
ProCharger also made sure that the accessories were given a strong OEM spring loaded tensioner. Using a spring loaded tensioner ensures that the accessories will have the proper belt pressure applied to them as the belt wears and grows over time.
To make installation of the accessory belt easy, we have also included an extra “boss” built into the bracket to allow for better leverage to release the tensioner. Once tension is off the belt, the belt can be easily slipped over the alternator pulley.
The Stage II system will come standard with a 6 rib blower drive belt running off the factory balancer. Upgrades to wider belts will be available soon with the addition of an aftermarket balancer.
If you already have an existing HO ProCharger system, and are looking for an upgrade. Each item can be purchased separately as well.
However, even with those impressive power numbers from otherwise stock cars running the HO systems, we knew that wouldn’t be enough to satisfy the true power/boost junkies out there. So to make sure everyone is covered from 600 to 1,225+ HP we are proud to announce the release of the 2015 Mustang ProCharger Stage 2 system, which allows you to bolt on an additional 230+ HP to otherwise stock motors running 91 octane pump gas.
The first thing you will notice about this under hood shot of the ProCharger Stage 2 supercharger system is the 8 rib belt connected to the P-1SC-1 head unit. This belt is now driven off a dedicated crankshaft pulley, compared to the shared 6 rib drive of the HO system. This dedicated belt system is designed to support up to the 1,225HP+ F-1R headunit! With F-1A/F-1C/F-1R blowers already powering cars into the 7 second range in the 1/4 mile, its going to be wild to see what 2015 Mustang owners are going to accomplish this season.
(Shown in Satin Finish)
Now just because the word “racing” is being used, do NOT think this Stage 2 system is something that will have you trimming/drilling/cutting into your car. This system is not only very easily installed, is is also 100% reversible, same as the HO system. That’s right, even a kit that supports up to 1,225+ HP doesn’t require any permanent vehicle modifications.
ProCharger knows that these systems will be used for high HP racing applications that dictate a rock-solid crank pulley design. Using a patented design, we are able to adapt a 8″ supercharger drive pulley onto the factory harmonic balancer, without having to drill or modify any factory parts. (balancers are already pinned from the factory). The ProCharger crank pulley works by using a system of “cam-locks” to securely grip the factory balancer, taking the load off the crank bolt, and ensuring years of service without worry.
Combining this 8″ crank pulley with a HD tensioner near the supercharger pulley, the system was designed for maximum belt wrap. Having a dedicated belt for the supercharger means less belt stretch. (AKA MORE tension and traction) Having a dedicated belt also gives the added bonus of being able to quickly remove the supercharger belt. After removing the supercharger belt all other functions of the car will remain the same, and still drivable.
Even with the best belt wrap possible the tensioner system still needs to be up to the task of holding drive power without slippage. ProCharger’s tensioner is unique in design in that its not only spring loaded, but also allows the customer to add as much pre-load adjustment as they want into the belt. This tensioner has already been proven to support high HP racing applications with dedicated 8 rib belts, ensuring a solid grip for those with elevated boost and power levels.
You can also change the pulley and 8-rib belt without removing the bracket or the supercharger. Making for quick and easy boost changes at the track or in your garage.
ProCharger’s massive 2015 Mustang Air-to-Air intercoolers make a huge visual statement, and have the performance to back it up.
The 2015 Mustang HO intercooler has already been tested to support over 800HP due to its highly effective 630 cubic inch core. While the Stage 2 intercooler increases its cooling core size by a mind blowing 75%, while still fitting behind the factory bumper without cutting/drilling/trimming any factory parts. (Yes, HO Systems can be upgraded to Stage 2 Intercoolers at time of purchase)
For those of you that are the “DIY type” doing installations in your home garage. The ProCharger Stage 2 system comes with a handheld programmer from Diablosport with a supplied ECU tune for the supercharger. ProCharger has spent countless hours on the Dyno/Street to not only deliver you a high horsepower tune, but also making sure to retain reliability. With long-term reliability in mind, these tunes are set up from ProCharger to account for fuel variations across the country. Custom tuning may result in more power, however is not required.
OK, so we know that we threw a lot of information out there about this new system, now let’s take a moment and break down the differences from the HO and Stage 2 systems for these 2015 Mustangs.
HO SYS: 8 psi Boost, HO Intercooler, Shared Drive, 45-50%+ power gain STG 2 SYS: 9 psi Boost, Stg 2 Intercooler, Dedicated Drive, 55%+ power gain
The HO system can be upgraded to Stage 2 intercooler.
Both systems can be upgraded to the “Red” ProCharger racing bypass valve.
ProCharger is located in Kansas City, where all systems are 100% imagined, designed, and produced right here in the U.S.A. We look forward to earning your business, and adding you to the ever-growing ProCharger Family!
Even though this ProCharger-powered Jeep Grand Cherokee WK2 SRT is a heavy SUV (tipping the scales at a whopping 5,150 lbs), that weight disadvantage is NOT stopping this supercharged SUV from ripping off 0-60 in sub 4 seconds (3.6 traction-limited seconds to be exact)!
At first glance, a 3.6 second 0 to 60 may not seem very fast, that is until you compare it to the competition. The only “fair” comparison would be its brother from another mother, the Mercedes ML63 AMG. Take a moment to let the sticker shock wear off ($98,400 AMG vs. $64,380 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT) and let’s take a look at the performance numbers:
*HP rating based on 23.82% drivetrain loss (rated 470 flywheel HP to 358 rear wheel HP)
So with nothing more than a bolt-on ProCharger supercharger system that installed in a matter of hours, you can shed at least 1 full second off your 0-60 time, and absolutely destroy this Jeep’s closest competitor. Trust us when we say, you’ll never look at the Jeep’s Launch Control button the same way again.
Use it sparingly though, because ripping off supercharged launches under full power can become addicting … and you may have to contact a doctor to remove the permanent grin from your face. Now lets dive into some other features that make this ProCharger system so awesome.
Upon opening the hood, the first thing you’ll notice is the ultra clean OEM fit and finish of the ProCharger supercharger system. No cutting or trimming is required during installation, which makes returning the truck to stock a breeze (If needed). The supercharger and bracket can be purchased in satin, black or polished finish.
Once the ProCharger Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT supercharger system is installed, people with a keen eye will notice the large air-to-air intercooler lurking behind the grill, demanding respect from “car people” in the know. Large and highly effective, the ProCharger intercooler is HUGE–good news for people looking to turn up these SUV’s above and beyond the HO intercooled system to produce even more boost and larger power gains.
This ProCharger supercharger system was designed with long lasting performance in mind. Thanks to the amazingly efficient P-1SC-1 supercharger and highly effective intercooler, massive power gains are possible with only 7psi of boost! Such a low boost number means you can be safe to run quality pump fuel from any gas station in the country (91+ octane).
If you are ready to turn your Jeep SRT Grand Cherokee into power-producing, street-screeching monster, drop us a line and we’ll show you the way. We’re happy to answer any questions you have about this system or any other ProCharger supercharger system in our vast product lineup.
This new ProCharger system begins shipping in late February, from the leaders in HEMI supercharging.
