Pro charging a 2010 camaro

I'm looking to procharge my new camaro when I get it. But I am unsure of what else I need to do to the car to make it work the best. I don't want to run very high boost at all. Under 10 psi. Do I have to upgrade the fuel system or the cam shaft or the heads. Can someone help me? I want to know if I can get away with just the procharger and the car still be reliable.

That looks really good. Does procharger sell a kit like that?

Add the injectors that come with whatever kit you get and maybe a boost a pump for security. Supercharger kits are made to throw on stock cars. BTW I think the 91 camaro has different mounting brackets for their supercharger than our fifth gens. Check the older model subforums for people with personal experience on your platform.

Ussually,a supercharger kit includes the injectors and sometimes a boost a pump so that you can still use the stock fuel system.This would only work if your car is bone stock and run 5-8psi of boost.Most gives you a decent tune.

If you install headers,perf. heads,and cam pkg, you would need to run even bigger injectors and a fuel pump ugrade aswell,also a custom tune would be required.

Procharger,ECS,Vortech has some nice kits.
Jannetty Racing also has a nice Vortech based kit available.

ECS is top notch. I like their kits more than procharger kits. Procharger is just a brand name like NOS. The ECS paxton kits are top notch and you can't go wrong with them, plus the service is the best around.

Probably going to want to upgrade axles too, and tranny. From what I've heard people have been able to snap the axles on bone stock cars when they go to the track, so when you're pushing 200+ hp more than stock it's a no brainer

I know the kit is for a 5th gen. I own a 91 rs 5.0 right now. But I will be purchasing a 2010 2ss within the next month. So I'm trying to learn as much about the fifth gens as possible.

Besides putting a S/C on the car, is there anything specific you want to know about the car?

Yeah Chris. When I do out this centrifugal supercharger on the car, what do I need to upgrade in the fuel system. I want to make minimal boost. I want the car to still be drivable. Also, it's not a huge problem that will affect me, but what will the impact on fuel economy be with the addition of the supercharger. With stock being 16city/24 highway. Which I'm sure you already know.

You can run 7-8 pounds with a boost a pump and upgraded injectors and be fine. I run a Procharger at 8psi and I love the kit plus I feel that Procharger has the better head units available. Nothing against ECS cause they are top notch but some people feel the need to always knock Procharger for some reason when they don't have one.

Your fuel system will be limited to how much power you want. Most, if not all, S/C systems come with fuel injectors and a BAP. Your fuel economy will be dependent on your right foot. When I got my blower put on, it dropped because I was just having too much fun, but I reset the screen and drove more conservatively, which brought me back up to where I was. If you decide to go for more power, that is when you'll see the fuel economy drop. One thing that will affect your wallet will be gas. It will be HIGHLY recommended that you use Premium gasoline to help prevent detonation. My car as it sits now I drive every day.

I'm not biased against one or the other. They both do the same job. I think it comes down to preference and those being partial to what they have or who they work with.

Wasn't directed at you. I wish I had the money cause i'd have a ECS car and a TT car to go along with my Procharged one.

ProCharger offers complete kits with upgraded fuel injectors and programmer or Tuner kits if you want to pick your own injectors and have a custom tune. In our experiences, the combinations are very docile as far as everyday street manners.

The ECS and Vortec kits are TOP notch IMHO.
if you lay out all the parts side by side to Procharger you will see why we sell these more than "others"

Give us a shout when your ready we wont be under sold on these kits or installs on them!
