    after all is said and done you can plan on around $6,000 or more. and you can very easily get alot more than 400rwhp for that money

    I would do a procharger over a turbo. a lot less work.


    but remeber, in order to make full use of the blower, you need all the supporting mods.

    TB, intake manifold, maybe a cam, long tube headers, ORY, and a good flowing catback. forced induction motors move A LOT of air.

    if you dont have those mods already, go ahead and tack them on the price. so, on top of the $5,000 blower, you need atleast $1,500- $2,000 in supporting mods.

    yah i have hooker coated LTs, ORY, and Borla already . i was leaning more toward procharger myslelf just so i can save the money on labor. there is a guy here that will do a turbo under the hood for around 7k.

    can a stock LS1 motor handle a D-1SC procharger with 8psi? i know i would need 60lb injectors but would everything stay together? That would be right near 500RWHP. i really like the design of it.
