procharger , bob from brutespeed is on here . Go with the d1 kti with a 8 rib setup . Or if you want something that will blow your motor if you want and then you have to build something up go with the f1 .

Bob at brutespeed is your best bet .

Hey, thanks for coming through, the procharger looks really good but the only problem i have is that i can't remove the front plates from my car as its illegal in this country.. and by the looks of how the procharger is installed both the front plates and the fog lights have to go, so i dont think the procharger is a good option for me unless there is a different type i can purchase that can simply be installed in the engine without removing the fog lights or the liscense plate??

do i have any other options for superchargers/prochargers?

The Procharger is fine. You not reading or looking. The fmic is an upgrade. It comes with twin ics that mount by the driving lights/turn signals. You can keep your front plate and fogs. It's only when you go big hp abd upgrade to the fmic where you have to lose the fogs

Your right i did not read it carefully,thanks for all the help,im a bit of a newbie incase you havent noticed, i'll be contacting bob about the procharger soon, would you recommend any other MODS besides the procharger? i heard theres no use of getting a K&N air intake if im going to be installing a procharger as it comes with its own intake, is that correct? im also thinking about getting the borla cat-back, i need some opinions on what to do, but mainly i want my car to reach over 700 HP

You really are a newb. You want 700hp and your asking about a catback. Your gonna need headers. Heads. Cam your sc. Big injectors prolly 80lb. Built rear end ford 9. Built up transmission. New clutch flywheel setup. Then wait till the engine blows. But your in way over your head. Get some good headers. Kooks. Either 1 7/8 or 2 inch primary and do the sc setup

Also I forgot. Fast intake. Fast tb and fast rails

Your better off buying a totally done car.

lol..that honestly made me laugh, i mentioned that cat-back because its the first thing im gona get, i dont want to do every single mod there possibly is to my car, how much HP can a procharger give? i dont want to blow my engine like you said, i just want to make my car a very strong car

if a stock WS6 is 325 HP and i only add a procharger, LT headers, full cat-back, cold air intake, how much HP would my car be? i only want the major mods that most people get.

It should get you into the 500 rwhp range. The cold air intake is not needed as it is part of the ProCharger system. I would add subframe connectors, as these cars really need them to keep the chassis structure solid when adding a lot of power. http://shop.brutespeed.com/BMR-SFC00...BMR-SFC001.htm Bob

Let me know if you have any questions. Bob
Does this kit still require the fan removal and replacement with a single unit? I've heard of overheating issues with the single fan and actually seen one personally.

Thanks for the info bob, i tried calling the number on your site but nobody answered the phone, i need to know the pricing for the procharger (with shipping)

please advise if theres any additional items i should get along with the procharger.. like the subframe connectors that you mentioned so i can avoid any problems i might face in the future, PM me with this info plz and tell me what is the best way to contact you for purchasing..etc etc

My car made 604 rwhp with a cam and a FAST 90 intake on 13 psi with a stock (130k) motor but I had to put Lonnies twin pump in the tank. But thats just the first step I went through 3 rearends and 7 trannies before going with a 9 inch and a lvl 7 RPM. If I were you I would keep the boost under 9lbs and it will live a lot longer. jeff

It was a D1 and a complete stock LS1 except for the cam. It ran great for a year and then I bumped the boost to 15lbs and it lasted a month and lifted a head. jeff
