Procharger Supercharger Part II

I'm starting this thread so we can track real interest in a supercharger by using a poll. I have been talking to Procharger and they are willing to make a supercharger for the V6 if we can show interest. So it's as simple as voting in the poll. There's no reason that this thread should be hijacked. It's to show interest not to bash anyone for wanting more options.

Good idea but you forgot the poll.

Quick little snippet.... do you think they would start to design a supercharger for our engine seeing as there is going to be a new engine in the 2012's?

I have talked to them and they said our car is on the list just need to show interest to speed things up... On a side note... is the new V6 the same size and layout as our engine? I do that some internals are different, but I wouldn't see what this wouldn't work for both engines.... may just need to offer more than one tuning option when the time comes though.

One thing we do know is the Bosch ECM will be used in the 2012 models.

I've seen several posts stating the Bosch ECM will be used in the 2012 model as well, apparantly some GM techs must have info on this as thats where the info has came from. I also thought it was listed on the GM Powertrain website but I can't find it any longer.

wait, they grow superchargers on trees?

if they make about 1000 on each supercharger then they would make 75 grand and that is still not including all of the other people who would buy this!

What I dont understand is why "we" camaro v6's need to show interest to these bigger companies in order for them to so call show interest in us also
Did the new mustang v6 guys call up procharger and bombard them with interest every single day?
If anything, our camaros are outselling the other 2 competitor for 3 year straight which should let these bigger companies know that there probably will be a bigger market for camaros before the new mustangs.
Im no expert so I might be wrong, but I just wish tuners and bigger companies would start taking us a little more seriously.

Also, does anyone know if 2012 will be sameE69 or a different bosch platform? all the guy said was that it will be bosch right?

And these teasers got old a year ago. All the FI big companies get contacted by someone asking about it or they come in here and then, magically, nothing happens and they disappear. Maybe this time if we tell them we aren't interested they'll make something?
I like Tracy's twins he helped put on Gretchen. I like to go see what Adkins is doing. I like to read up on what Z's done with the STS kit. I like what IPS is doing with their twins. And I really love the fact PtKilla went from supercharger to twin turbos to single remote turbo.

That is one guy I think I would get wore out just sitting and watching.

we got 81 votes for yes now. so that is over what 81,000 dollars. smh , how the **** isnt 81,000 enough on an upgrade as small as a supercharger? not to mention the money they would make off labor for installing the kit, thats another 2,000 per kit..... wtf, and offering upgraded pullies intercoolers , chargers etc? over a 500,000 - 1,000,000 dollar market if u ask me.

Ok update... I made the thread because I have been in contact with Procharger and thought it would be the easiest way to show them we have interest. They never asked me to make a thread to show interest. Anyway I left a message for their development dept and their marketing dept so I can see if this thing can get rolling. I have already offered them my car as a test car. I'll call again tomorrow and hopefully talk to someone and have more info.

I'm not sending a hit against you or what you're doing. If you scroll through these pages for FI you'll see there's been a ton of threads like this. The interest is there, the manufacturers aren't. Maybe you could get a bunch of them rounded up and point it out to them. In the meantime, I'll play with what I got.
Lingenfelter actually had a package posted on their website. It disappeared.
