Finally got the Procharger i1 installed

This is my first supercharger so I don't have much basis for comparing..but..wow! I'm getting 8lbs of boost on full throttle. The power is just...crazy! I really like how I can switch off the power with a touch of a button and just cruise with no boost, but when you kick in competitive you are addicted to finding every opportunity to accelerate! Even the sound is awesome, it makes me feel like I'm in some scene in Furious.

If you have a daily driver and want a lot of fun and flexibility on deciding when you want to use the power - this is probably your best bet.

Sharing some photos here, hope the links work:

I tried an external URL last time, maybe that was the problem

avido: The procharger is traditionally belt driven by the engine but uses electric for the belt driven ratio changes, computer and display.

picushin3819: I didn't put it on the dyno yet, the power gains are estimated right now based on the driving data, but the kit promises to add at least 50% power, in all cases I have seen that is towards the pessimistic side. It should add close to 200hp to the RWHP.

I will get it dyno'd in a couple weeks when the shop gets their new dyno in so I'll be sure to share once I do. There are no other mods on the car, I ran it bone stock until the bumper to bumper warranty was over, I felt it was good to also flush out any problems before upgrading anything.

It's a typical belt driven blower, but instead of normal internal gear setup, there's also a CVT drive, ie a variable transmission to let you alter actual impeller speeds.
