    LS Procharger Motor

    Trying to build a "reliable" LS motor for the Texas Mile speed trials using a Procharger. Anyone have a formula that works well, is somewhat affordable, reliable, and can handle boost.

    if your wanting to run a procharger setup in general your looking at at least 6k depending on what kit and who installs it

    Yeah there not cheap cause thats what i want to do but i just dont have the coin at the moment. i asked one of the local performance shops around here and they quoted me almost 10k with parts and labor and all. (that includes dyno tuning until its perfect).

    Depends really on what power level you want. If you run 8-9psi you can just get the kit, front mount intercooler, fuel pump, and bigger injectors. All that new, like said, will be about 6k in coin.

    If you want to run more boost, you need to forge the motor; connecting rods and pistons minimal. With labor that can run you probably close to another 4-5K.

    Before you even think about that power level, you need some major upgrading to the suspension, rear end, new tires, clutch (if M6), transmission, etc.

    otherwise all that car is going to be good for is a burnout contest

    The guy's serious about trying to build a Texas Mile/Bonneville car... He likely has his ways of making money.

    One rule of FI... Take what you think it's gonna cost, and double that figure.
