Pro charger D1SC

Need some help in deciding on a supercharger. Decided to go with a centrifugal, but need some honest opinions on the Procharger D1SC. The P1SC is the standard for the kit but for $200 more can get the D1. I plan on in the future building a larger stroker motor so I know the P1 may be a little small and really don't want to have to upgrade later. My 2010 SS M6 already had 1-7/8" kooks headers, hi flo cats, 3" Flowmaster cat back exhaust, with a tune. I only have 6500 mi on it so the stroker motor will be a few years away. Just want a reliable 550+ HP. Will the D1 be fine with a stock engine, not drag racing or anything just play on the streets a little. What fuel and injector mods will be needed to support the D1. Thanks ahead of time for all replies

Why Procharger and not Vortech? Just asking.

Procharger is the way to go. Upgrade to the D1 and have a blast with it until you're ready to build it.

Love my D1. Gives you plenty of room to grow into. You'll be fine on a stock motor until you're ready to go big. With the P1, your potential is maxed out from the get-go.

If u are going to get the P1.... Go vortech instead. If you are going procharger for sure go d1sc.

If he's for sure going stroker or looking for over 800 I agree 100%

The stroker is far off in the future, got 1 more kid to get through college. So that'll be some time down the road. I won't be using a shop except for the tune. I've been a master tech for the last 20 yrs. This is my hobby and I will be doing all the install myself. I maintain cars during the day and modifiy in the evening stress reliever.... Don't need 800 hp it's a street toy so 550-600 is plenty for me. I do like road racing did it for years on my R6 would like to outfit the SS for mega power down the straights and a tight suspension for burning up the curves at VIR.
I would like to talk to a shop to make sure I order all of the right parts the first time. I'm in Virginia Beach VA. So really no one local to go to with a lot of lsx experience.
What fuel upgrades would I need to push 600+ to the tires and what boost level would be safe? Thx again for all replies

On my Paxton Im 9lbs with LPE dual pump and 60lb injectors and 580-600 depending on weather and dyno. Stock internals but will do head and cam swap soon with some 85lb injectors.

Give us a call. I can get you a procharger kit and do the install and tuning for free If you buy the kit from us. I can also arrange shipping if its needed for you.

A forged stroker is in my future as well. With my D1, I started with the upgraded intercooler. To move up to an F-series with a stroker, I *think* that I can use an F head unit with the same outlet diameter. That way, I can keep the rest of the plumbing.

Sounds like for your goals, the D1 is the way to go, with upgraded IC. I was at a solid 620 (automatic) for a good while when I still streeted it.

As for fuel, you have many options. I have Aeromotive and don't like it. I would go now with a Squash returnless when it comes out.

Yeah I'm kinda on the pay once and done scenario. I know the limits I'm willing to go and the D1 and the upgraded inter cooler are what I am intending to get. Trying to keep it streetable at all costs, no overheating, jerking or bogging or blubbering. 15 yrs ago I would've gone hog wild, and dealt with those inconveniences. Now comfort and convenience with some HP thrown in are my priorities.

Padre what injectors did you go with? Don't want a loud obnoxious fuel pump. Which one is adequate for my HP goal but quiet like stock? Besides SC whine I don't want to hear much else. Thx again

I have 80lb injectors, forget which brand. At 620rwhp, they were at 70%. I'm probably pushing them now at 720rwhp. They are on my upgrade list if/when I go forged stroker and F-series.

If you don't like loud obnoxious pumps, don't go Aeromotive. It's one of the most unpleasant things about the car now.

The D1 is a great blower and will be perfect for your stock motor. Once you stroke it you will be limited to about 800rwhp. If more than that is your ultimate goal, go with an F1 series now. Or just sell your D1 when you're ready. Thats what i did. Going twin turbo in a couple weeks

ETA: Just read post #9 where you spell out your goals......the D1 will be perfect for you

Bo White, with the LPE dual pumps do you have to add a boost a pump or anything? 800 rwhp sounds nice but not trying to scatter my motor wife would kill me!!! She bought me the car for our 20 th anniv... I had to promise to not blow it up!! Had a 550hp 406 S10 I used to race. She reminded me of all the money I put into it and once I got it running where I wanted to it was very unpleasant on the street. Got dis interested and sold it. I hate having a strip only car. Besides I'm turboing my 08 ZX14, so if I want crazy sick acceleration and speed I'll pull that out of the garage! So I'm guessing 80lb injectors are what I need to accomplish my 600+ rwhp goal with the D1. Meth injection required at that level? Also will my hi-flo cats disintegrate? Seen a post awhile back discussing that may have to go Catless mid pipes. On vacation next few days guess I'll start calling and shopping around. I hope all our vendors are open the rest of the week! Willing to travel for a great deal! Thx for all the replies if I'm missing anything please feel free to let me know

The LPE is a nice fuel system and complete.Don't need a boost a pump.Good for a good 700+Rwhp and quiet.If you go on the LPE website,you can see the instructions.

Really haven't heard much about them positive or negative about their work from the local camaro club. What I have heard is that they're expensive. I did call them about tuning my camaro once I got my CAI, LT headers, hi- flo cats, and catback. They wanted my camaro for 2 days, could not give me a definite price. Also they were talking about splicing in C6 O2 sensors because long tubes cause the stock O2's to read slow. Never heard of that and generally did not give me the confidence that I needed to leave my car with them for 2 days. All I could think of was them beating the heck out of my camaro with only 2k miles on it for 2 days, and selling me un needed parts. They were talking about close to 1k for a tune I don't think so. Not bashing but telling my side, and why I don't deal with them. I'm a professional mechanic myself and they raised more questions than provided answers. My buddy who has a ZL1 told me of another tuner who did his car. Awesome results, tuned in 1 day and were a great bunch of guys to work with, made me feel very welcome and genuinely went out of their way to make sure I was completely satisfied. I told them I was thinking of a cam they told me they would only charge me 1/2 price to re-tune my car. I like performance shops that build relationships with their customers, didn't get that feeling from VA Speed.

Ohh I completely understand. I have never dealt with them, I just know that they are the premier Chevy shop in the 757 area. The only other shop that I know of that does LSx work is Dyno Tuned Performance in Virginia Beach. But the reason why I didn't go to them, is because I'd rather go to a shop that ONLY specializes in LS motors, and they do Ford, Dodge, and Chevy. Good luck and I hope you get squared away.

That's the plan D1, just wondering if I should get a decent blower cam first. I need a cam that will work N/A for a while till I can get the D1. Really just want to do it one time. I know I said the 600 rwhp would be all I need but... We all know too much is never enough... Want a nice lope but streetable.. Any suggestions?
