Cheap is bad word when used with Turbo/ Super Charger

Turbos are cheap as hell.

Installation and support parts are what jacks the price up.

I had a Procharger system. It was very good and they were very good to me when I had to deal with them.

I have had Vortech and Paxton for years. The design is first rate and they hold up very well.

I have a Harrop supercharger that is a little more radical and needs a strong bottem end.

There are going to be a lot of choices for the new Camaro.

I like Eaton... maybe i'm just biased. Harrop does really good too.
A nice Eaton TVS charger for me... already one available for the 6.2...

For the LS9, the supercharger cranks out 10.5 psi of boost.

you really want a cheap and reliable turbo. get a small garret turbo and run about 2psi.
