    Default super/procharging?

    well im about as far as i can go with my truck performance wise. got my intake, exhuast and programmer.... now i want more power. i was trying to look for prochargers, but i cant find any? google search for three hours. maybe i just suck, what ever the case may be, i need one. and i dont want anything thats going to blow a stock motor. i cant build my motor because of warrenty, but they did ok the procharger as long as i have a good friend of mine from xenocron tuning install it. and maybe down the road sneak some cams. but thats later....

    can anyone help? if theres any useful info you have, pleaase share. im more into turbos cause of my rx7, ive NEVER dealt with a super/pro charger before.

    It's not just you motor that will let go unfortunately. If you found a Procharger P1SC and got it tuned properly, that is you best bet to keeping costs and repairs down.

    We have quite a few customers running Prochargers that like them and see good results. We personally are running Magnachargers on all our vehicles (DDs included), great systems.

    We are really happy with the Magnachargers, and have them on our TBSS, Silverado SS, and Tahoe. Great quality and they get the beasts off the line, which is where I feel they need the most help. Couple it with a good cam and headers, and they are even better.

    I like that they are complete kits, and include intercoolers (which is very important on these engines)/

    We also have customers running Whipples, Turbos, Prochargers, it is all personal preference.

    yea, im just wondering if turbos are gonna effect my towing performance... only thing killing me about magna chargers is that it is pretty expensive. is there anything around the 5000 dollar mark?

    We have an agreement with Magnacharger, stating that I won't post prices publicly on the systems. If you are interested in prices on the systems, shoot me an email with the system number you are interested in, and I will see what I can do for you (jenna@blackbearperformance.com).
