from Superchargers 4 Less
Year / Model Reviewed:
Plenty of power. Procharger advertised 540 hp, and 10 lbs of boost, but I made 629 with 13 lbs. of boost. So this was an unexpected surprise.
The Diablo tune that comes with the charger is only good enough to get you to a shop for a custom tune. He was only able to take it to 3,800 rpm on the initial pull, for fear of damaging the engine. Also, the Diablo was not compatable with the dyno... so I had to spring for an SCT on top of the dyno fees. Also you will need plugs and a fuel pump upgrade (Shelby is recommended) as well as Shelby injectors. The 39's are at thier limit with an optimum tune. Had I had the pump and injectors, JDM could have given me 30 more hp. Very noisy. Sounds like a bad pulley might sound at idle. But, all agreed... this is normal when not under load.
Makes great power high end. Procharger guarantees 540 hp. I just dynoed at 593 with X-pipe, high-flow cats and SLP Loudmouth as the only mods. Could have made 629... IF I had upgraded to the Shelby fuel pump and injectors. But JDM kept it "safe" for fear of burning out the strap-on fuel pump that's in the system. After spending all the extras, I think I'd continue to save my pennies and go for the Saleen or Whipple. They have a more even power band, are much quieter, and I have a feeling would probabley last a lot longer. But, only time will tell.
