Personally drove the car around the facility today and man oh man does it feel different then the first time I took it out for the weekend. This is how the car should have came from the factory!!!

Comparing Apples to apples... A fully loaded 2SS with this supercharger still puts you around the base price of a Dodge Challenger and you are up 150 hp!!! Great buy!

We will have the units arriving within the next couple of days and are taking orders at this time. Call me directly and I can assist you with any of your questions.

Speak to you soon.

So which is it? I have seen on this forum in another thread (forgot which one) the stock RWHP of the LS3 listed as ~ 348. Here they say 376HP or so. That's a big difference. The other thread said 150 + HP increase resulted in about 480 RWHP @ 6 psi. Who am I to believe?

Someone posted the reason that different stock camaro's will show different HP and torque specs. Different dynos i'm sure is one. BUt even if u tested camaro's on the same dyno you would still see a difference in HP and torque ratings. But i can't remember why it was said you would see different ratings.

I don't know how they teach math where you come from, but an unpolished blower alone is going to cost you, according to their site, $6800. (If you want the polished one in the video, fork over $7500). On top of that, this car has:

Corsa Exhuast System: $1450
CAI System: $395
Tune: $75?

If you just add up the unpolished blower, CAI and exhaust, your looking at $8600, not counting any labor or install costs.

Still, that's not a bad price for the power it makes.
A good pro dyno Tune should be around $300-400

still doesnt even come close to the 2010 rustang gt500 price (32k base SS vs 46k base Gt500). And it makes 636HP (530rwhp+20% Drivetrain loss) vs gt500's 540hp, lol. Rustang = fail

EDIT: go with a procharger, since its pretty simple to bolt on u can save moneys on labor
EDIT #2: and u can bolt it off when its time for warranty work

Yeah, I would agree with the price on a good tune including dyno time.

Nice. I take it you are one of those guys who feels like the manufacturer should pay for any damages that occur as a result of modifications you made following delivery. Guess what, while you might be saving yourself a few bucks, you're costing us all in the long run. That repair is not free and the manufacturer just passes the cost on in the way of MSRP on new cars. Do us a favor, man up and take responsibility for the actions you take with your new car instead of perpetrating fraud on the dealer/manufacturer.

You do know that having modifications on your car does not void your entire warranty, right? Even if you had a ProCharger in place, unless you were taking the car in for warranty work that might have been caused by the additional load put on the drivetrain, then you have nothing to worry about anyway.

Really? I thought towards the end it sounded ok but wtf was with the high pitched whistling noise? Not to mention the fact that the engine was rocking so much it looked like it was gonna fall out...

And FYI the S/C is not polished. It is a new "Polished Look" powder coating.

I will guess that the 6-speed will put down more power to the rear wheels compared to the auto. So far we have only tested the 6-speed. However, I do know that on the 2009 Cadillac CTS-V, the 6-speed puts down about 20 rw hp more than the auto. Also, we do all of our dyno pulls on a cold motor. That way all of our pulls are compared under the same conditions. Other shops may post their numbers on heat-soaked motors for which heat-soak can account for a 20-30 rw hp difference.
