Carb exempt and 50 state legal really makes this look like an option for us California cars.

Its the same on a stang. I have seen people use a shorty filter, that fits right behind the S/C..but there is really not a whole lot of room to go anywhere else.

How is that intake sucking anything other than extremely hot engine heat?

That is what the intercooler is for. It doesn't matter where the air is coming from, it gets cooled before it goes into the intake.

Granted, it would be nice if it pulled colder air, but really doesn't make a difference with an intercooler.

Go to there site and look at the different sizes & shapes they have.

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.
Yeah, thats the 1st thing I saw too. It just doesnt look like it belong right there.

thats alot for that kit. years ago these kits were only $ 4000 whats the big difference probably not too much, I cant believe how these prices just keep going up and up. I hope nobody buys this kit so that procharger realizes that they are over the market.

I know. I thought prices were DEflating not inflating.

Uh, where have you been, our gov't is printing money like crazy. Some analysts are warning that there may be hyper inflation.

I don't think $6k is bad for the kit at all. If you are waiting for a $3k supercharger kit you may be waiting a looong time.

I agree $6k is not too bad, but the price is closer to $7k.

2010 Camaro: ProCharger Systems and Tuner Kits Now Available
Posted on June 26th, 2009 by ProCharger

Building on our industry-leading experience with supercharging GM LS engines, ProCharger is once again first-to-market with an air-to-air intercooled supercharger system and tuner kit for the highly anticipated 2010 Camaro SS. Complete systems and tuner kits are available for order now and will begin shipping by July 10th. -- http://www.procharger.com/supercharger/blog/?p=130




Utilizing the patented and proven, self-contained ProCharger P-1SC-1 supercharger, a highly effective air-to-air intercooler and dedicated 8-rib drive, a ProCharger system or tuner kit can add 45% or more horsepower to an otherwise stock Camaro SS running high quality pump gas.



The HO Intercooled System comes 100% complete, including the industry-standard ProCharger supercharger, air-to-air intercooler, intercooler tubing, brackets, fuel injectors, ProFlow bypass valve, tuning and simple installation. Thanks to the industry’s coolest charge air temperatures, the unmatched power gains are delivered with maximum reliability and everyday driveability.

Tuner Kits are identical to complete systems but omit fuel injectors and computer programming.



Yes, we know these long awaited cars are going to be raced, so ProCharger Race Kits will be coming very soon. Look for the legendary ProCharger F-Series superchargers, dedicated 12-rib and cog drive sytems and larger intercooler options for 2010 Camaros with modified LS engines.
Procharger was the first on the block with the C-5 Z06 kit & I had the misfortune of buying one. These were the issues, poor quality intercooler boots,misaligned pulleys causing premature belt failure,Blower should of had its own belt, Too many items driven off one 5 rib belt. intercooler pipes hung too low & had to be redone. Programming & tune provided way off, even after 4 attempts to have corrected. No support & arrogant attitude from staff.Product was rushed to market to beat out competitors & left to the installer to figure it all out. I have been in the automotive industry way longer than Procharger in business & have welding,fabrication & general repair skills & was accused of not knowing what I was doing. My advise is not be the first to buy this kit & look into what other options are available. One of their most respected vendors A&A corvette no longer will do business with them also. Sorry that my first post here has to be so negative but I have no ulterior motives for posting this other than it is what it is.

Hmm... I know my tuner's been using them for several years, but I'm going to check with him regarding this too. It's too bad what happened to your 'Vette though and the response it sounds like you had.

That head unit looks similar to what I've seen in the past. That being said, what I don't like is having to pull the head in order to change the oil within. I thought I remembered the interval was something like every 6,000 miles, but I don't have to pull my rear end to change the fluid so I just have a little bit of a hard time with that. Don't get me wrong though - I don't much like the idea of having to tap into the oil pan either that I remember some other centrifugals either. I know these babies perform; I don't think that's too arguable. I'm just curious to still see the numbers.

2 comments...these type S/C produce power in a turbo(esc) way...ie in a linear fashion, they don't produce the raw low end torque of a roots type blower, but they will make very strong power 3-4K up and make more peak power than a PD blower. Since this is a heavy car, the question I have is which one will "run" better, product better power under the curve (more average power).
2nd...the price is or should be very attractive...you boys looked at the TVS pricing? This is extremely comparable if not cheaper than TVS's...so I'd say its a pretty good deal. There is a local vette on stock short block that is running mid 10-s at 130+ with one of these things....lots a miles on the stock short block..

You're gonna get a ton of different responses.

The way I see it, and this is just my opinion... Roots and twin screws are going to give you that instant burst of low end torque while still maintaining a decent gain higher up. Depending on how you drive this may be what you're looking for. I can see that setup having major traction issues on the Camaro.. Refer to the SS vs GT500 video. Traction issues made that bastard run slower than it should on paper. Another good read is the edmunds test of the HPE 550.

Now, the centrifugals, like you said, gain power more in a linear fashion like a turbo. You will still gain some low end torque over stock so it will have worse traction than stock... but not nearly as bad as the PD blowers.. The large gains come mid to high range. I can see that setup being quicker in the fact that you will be able to control traction easier, which will get you into that higher rpm range quicker where you're gonna pull like a mofo.

But after all thats just my opinion and it's probably
