Be sure to post a nice big pic of the before/after dyno run. I want to see not just peak numbers but how the shape of the torque curve changes.

anybody have problems with super charging such a high compression ratio engine???????? 10.5 to 1 with 7 lbs of boost, that has to be getting that head psi way up there for a non o ringed block?????? :cheers

i dont doubt it makes power i am just concerened about reliability, i am looking for about 500 hp[crank] and realize the pro charger is the ez way to go,and is probaly the best s/c out there, but pushing out a head gasket seems very possible with that kind of head pressure on a stock engine?? :cheers

I understand your concerns, however, I spoke with Procharger many times before deciding to go with them and they assured me that there are no problems with this kit, if you want you can PM me and I'll give you there tech line so you can talk to their people. I am very impressed with the numbers it put up, the driveablity, and the calm demeanor until you push the loud pedal and stomp the guys ass next to you!!! :cheers

One of the long term thoughts I've had is to design a combo specifcally for supercharging. Starting with an iron 6.0 block from a truck, going with AFR(?) heads, 4" forged crank, forged rods and pistons with a lower compression ratio (say 8-9:1). Of course, all the other bits would be upgraded (cam, injectors, pump, full exhaust, etc... Then I would want to put on a supercharger with much higher boost and get some serious power that way. (of course, I'd upgrade the rest of the drivetrain to handle the extra power...)

How easy is it to get a Procharger to put out more boost for an application like that? Just a pulley swap? How much boost can they put out safely? So long as it's more than I want to run, I'd be happy.

The goal would be in the 600+ HP range with enough strength to be reliable for the most part.

i spoke with them as well and they said no problems have been reported. i also spoke to them a couple years ago about a s/c for a stang,and the told me the same... and i blew a head gasket 5000 miles later????replaced it and 400 miles later blew the other side!!!

I already have a complete 6.0 out of a truck and that is my next project, I'm going to try all motor with a compression ratio of around 10.5 : 1 and if that isnt enough then I'll put the bottle on it. Do you know of anyone who makes a 427 stroker for the 6.0? To answer you question, I would recommend the D1sc Procharger to push that much air, your pretty much maxing the p1sc at 600 + hp. :cheers

I completely understand your concern, (who wants to blow up a motor on a $30k car!!), technology has changed a lot in the last couple of years. Procharger has a 3yr/36k mile warranty available that covers anything their s/c screws up!!! :cheers
