It is pretty much a setup like a 3V Mustang the inlet seems to work good in street trim.

The air intake location looks bad but the supercharger is going to heat the air way past under hood temps anyway... hence the intercooler. It's the temp coming out of the intercooler that matters.

Let me be the first to say, you guys will not be disappointed with the Procharger.

Jason and the guys literally down the street in Lenexa did my C6 a few years ago as a factory beta tester and it rocked.

This kit will probably run you $6k for the kit and $8k or so total installed cost (that is par for the course on the Vette, so I'd expect this LS kit to be similar). Involves removing the nose to fit the intercooler on the C6.

http://forums.corvetteforum.com/c6-c...tallation.html

I suspect 150hp bump with the Procharger tune which tends to be a bit conservative for drivability and emissions.

Helluva kick in the pants boys.

It will be interesting to see what they do for the V6 (that's a hint Jason).

Dang, I was hoping for much less. I didn't see it as large and invasive as a normal SC, but i suppose you don't see everything.

$6k seems to be right in line with what most supercharger kits go for that I have seen advertised. At least in the Vette world.

A centrifugal supercharged car will drive more or less like stock until you get on it. Once you hit 3500-4000 rpm's it will be a screamer and take off like a bat out of hell.

Too bad about the air filter location, that is the first thing I saw when I looked at the pics and it is an eye sore.

Thus the reason why I said I am unsure HOW MUCH a stock Ls3 can take. The poster was referring to his nephew's MUSTANG.

For a stock 4.6(289) 500RWHP is the limit of safety on that stock block. The ATI system on a MUSTANG can put out well over the threshold for that car. Thus that can be the reason why his nephew car went boom...

If the camaro LS3 can take 600+ RWHP or more on stock internals, than thats a wonderful thing. I guess we will start to find out just exactly what the breaking points will be soon enough.
A stock 4.6L is 281 cubic inches since 1996 and a stock sohc/dohc mustang 4.6L engine can only handle 450rwhp. You can do whatever you want to but i had a 2003 Dohc 4-valve Mach1 4.6L (281) and i was on the limit with 444rwhp off a procharger system with 10#'s, so i know for a fact a 3-valve 2005+ GT mustang can only handle 450 safe. The 3-valve heads are one step away from 4-valve heads. These new camaro SS's can handle 525-550rwhp just doing basic math and going off what LS3 Vettes can handle but don't push your luck after that.

Very true but it actually helped with the 2005+ Mustang Gt's with that odd filter location. The temps went down 10-15 degrees. $6k seems high to me I got my Procharger P-1SC kit for my '03 Mach1 for $5k and I got the 10# upgrade, polished head unit, hand held tuner with 2 tunes 91 octane and 100 race gas. You could get a custom Turbo kit for $6k and dominate !!!

6K isn't bad for 150+rwhp. Very clean looking unit. I would probably go with this after about a year.

OK, now somebody figure out a cowl induction hood/airbox setup that's functional so the filter's not sitting on top of all that heat. (It'd certainly look better.)

ProCharger makes a good pitch as always, but I really want to see a dyno chart accompanied with a quarter mile video. I think that would make the best case.

ProCharger has traditionally represented a great product. I'm sure that will continue.

On a more critical note, I hope that someone can make that intake functional. I can't imagine the placement being worse.

It'd be nice to see dyno' numbers from an SS but the numbers from the 'Vette look pretty promising. These numbers (from the crank from what it looked like) look like they'd be pretty close to what some roots/screw-type lungs offer.

Pretty cool
