    Look in the forced induction part of the menu and there is a right up above your post in a sticky, that is like your car, hope this helps. BTW I have a post in the GTO section and have had no replys so I called Bob.

    I will baseline and final build dyno week I think.... I can hardly wait. I took my Bird out for a ride today. Kinda before / after runs. I was like "What the heck do I need a S/C on this thing?" I can hardly keep the tires from spinnig on the street as she is. I'll have to run my DR's on the street I think.

    What's a good handling street slick guys? DR's don't handle for S#!t. Doesn't Bridgestone or Goodyear make some thing for the street that is super sticky.

    DR's are a must for these cars I'm learning....1st gear is basically a pedal fest with street tires.

    Yes, I was looking at those. I think that is what I'll go with Toyo R888. Good for track, drags and street as long as it is dry. ;-)

    If that's what I'm getting I'll be extremely happy. ;-)

    I was thinking about 11.4 and 118mph with 7psi in the 1/4mi.

    souns like you guys need some suspension work.

    procharger on the other hand i think sucks. not the supercharger its self, but the rest of the shit. i installed one last week and the fitment was garbage. the supercharger is capable of some serious power but i still dont like the way they feel. just as it starts to pull real hard you have to shift. i guess thats what you get when you build boost with rpm though.

    I will add to my suspension for improvement but, I do already have about $3000.00 into it with LCA, SFC, TB, Traclink, Bilstiens, PHR, 1LE sways, Hotchis springs, air bag for rear spring, upgraded poly, etc....

    Better brakes, roll bar, lighter wheels and dual adj Konis are next... Woohoo !!!

    dudeman, What was the cat # of your charger set up, did you buy the complete kit or the tuner kit and what kind of car did you put it on, and you said it did not fit worth a crap? Thanks', Jack

    it was on a 2009 mustang gt. dont know the cat #. it was on a customers car and is already out of the shop. it was a complete kit, the procharger and bracket fit nicely it was just the intercooler piping didnt fit worth a shit. when i was doing my research for the kit i noticed procharger used to include a thin fan set up for the mustang. i guess later they revised the kit so the didnt include the fan. anyway, the stock fan had to be hack to allow room for the piping as well as bending ac lines and power steering lines out of the way. the intercooler fit fine but it seemed to tall. it was pushing out the bottom of the bumper cover. another thing i was disappointed about were the couplers were just gates rubber hose cut to a specific length for the couplers

    this was my first experience with procharger, i hope they are not all like that. i thought procharger would have been better. i did install a vortech v1 s-trim on a foxbody and had absolutely no issues. it didnt make the power i wanted. what can you do right!

    I want to put one on the ls-2, do you guys have them on your ls-1 [ same thing] and if so do you like it, from what I understand it's a very good system. Please share your thoughts. Thanks

    Prochargers are worthless on stock engines unless you are willing to push it's limits. I run a forged set-up D1SC at 15psi/750+rwhp/700tq and it will pull hard at any rpm since boost start early and keeps ramping up. I can't imagine what my car would be like at only 5-7psi. = slow

    The quality on the other hand: Great head unit but the rest of it should be custom anyways.
