    Bob at Exotic built high mileage ATI

    Bob at Exotic Perfomance put an ATI Procharger on an LS! Camaro with over 100k and had great results. He we probably reply with more info.

    50k should be fine. Keep the boost under 8# and make sure the tune is good.

    how much does a good tune up cost when you add a supercharger. Are you able to tune it up with a power programer or something like that or does it need to be sent out.

    '02 WS6 Procharged 9psi

    i installed my procharger for 10psi and EPP (Bob) in Indiana tuned it for me. I am on 55,000 miles on the stock engine now (20,000 alone on the blower). Everything is still running perfect for me. But keep in mind, i dont redline 10psi it everywhere on the streets.

    Mine has 40K on it and no problems whatsoever. As long as the tune is good, you're fine.
