    why a procharger over sts? turbo controllers let you select different boost levels with turbo, but you have the faster spool with a supercharger. btw its gonna be a homemade kit and i know i can prob do each pretty cheap. like with the supercharger- just buying the head unit and fabbing up the brackets myself and the sts- getting a diesel holset turbo and get some piping and a dedicated oil system in the passenger rear wheel well.

    I never liked turbos, but it seems cheaper after doin research than a supercharger since the only expensive part i need is a turbo which is alot cheaper than a supercharger headunit and also i understand there is a higher capability with a turbo.

    Now I would be the very first to choose a turbo system over a supercharger.......BUT.........a rear mounted STS system is garbage and you will be very dissappointed. Now a front mount system is a whole nuther story!

    Well, if it's just procharger over STS then I will say Procharger. But, if you put a turbo up front I will say turbo all day long. Also, I would forget the dedicated oil system for the back thing. You would have to build a big system back there and then try to get it circulated thru your system. You will just end up burning the oil up in no time flat. Just don't see a system put over the wheel well doing it. A turbo is hard on oil.

    Sounds to me like your working with a small budget. You simply can't do turbos on a small budget. I think you will like a procharger and you can get by with not spending a lot of money. You will NEVER have the power of a good turbo system but blowers are a ton of fun!!!

    sts or procharger

    o and i forgot to mention xessive is an authorized procharger dealer

    and the only way to tell the difference from a d-1 to a p-1 is the impeller size , so if someone u know has either or and will let u measure and compare i say go for it

    I wouldn't call that the only way. There is a metal ID plate attached that SAYS what kind (size) of blower it is. That seems like it would be the easier way

    Prochager if its between that and the STS kit. But a good front mount turbo, I'd might lean more towards that
