Question Procharger S/C?

Hey all, as I'm exploring options about how I want to make my car go faster I contacted ProCharger about their new s/c kit for the svtf. They sent me their brochure, but also a letter saying their isn't an 'application for my car at this time'. Of course, they also included a picture of their project focus and an svtf on a dyno with a graph showing power #'s ranting and raving about their new 10psi pulley. What gives? Anyhoo...before I contact them directly, has anyone heard about when they PC will officially release their c-1 s/c app. for the svtf? I'd also be interested in hearing from folks who have it (if it's already out) what their thoughts are about it's daily drivability and street performance (like, for when stomping on the pedal to crush Honda's is a must) is.

Holla...

Yea, I know that if I'm wanting to dust evos and sti's and srt4's Tom's Turbo is the way to go. I'm not entirely sure about what my budget will be come May when I start executing my well conveived plan (mwaaa-haa-haa!) of making my svtf quicker. I'll probably be able to afford Tom's Turbo. But, emissions in Cali are a real bee-otch, so that IS a concern. I also need to find a mechanic and garage that is reputable and whom I trust. Plus, my svtf is my only car at the moment, so it has to retain it's daily driver-friendlyness. I've looked at the jrsc and at vortech. Between those two, the vortech is more appealing bc of it's better power output. The jrsc is more appealing bc it's on Fords Racing Catalog, so I think it's more supported (guessing at this) by Ford.
I'm hoping to compare those s/c's to one another and narrow the field. Obviously, when it comes to Turbos, from what I've read on these boards, there's no need to compare -- Tom's is the ONLY way to go. And, based on folks testimonies here, I believe that to be true...

Still, just checkin' around to see what my options are...

BTW, do you know which thread Blox was on perhaps talking about the the Procharger?

How much HP is that Procharger putting down on their SVTF project car?

I know the Procharger is not even out yet, but from what you guys have heard is it going to be as reliable as the JRSC?

Reliability should be pretty good. I could see a probability of belt slippage happening and also the Supercharger itself has to be maintained since you don't have to drill a hole into the block for oiling like you do with the Vortech. As far as the HP rating meister should give you that since he has the official brochure.

Im looking at the procharger myself infact before i saw this thred i was on the phone with them.I have a zetec and live like 2 hrs away from where they make them so the way i look at it is they are close and i can get all kinds of support from them i also was given a # to reach a whole saler of it and they said they have installed about 5 of them and so far so good no problems at all the price i was given was $3559.60 for the full kit.Here are the hp tq #s i got from them 210 wheel hp @ 6200 and 184 tq @5200 and at 4600 175 this unit puts a pretty flat tq curve down. Heres the contact info i was given from pro charger MCracing 1-913-789-9888 i think his name was adam

I will be looking at the procharger option soon myself. For such a small amount of boost and the great racing background that Procharger has it will be interesting how this kit turns out.

210 whp and 184 tq...is that for the standard zetech or the svt tuned 2.0? Those aren't bad numbers at all if it's on the standard zetech block. I'd be super curious to see what the #'s would be for an svtf...

Also, thanks to svt tour for the #...completely far away from my 408 area code, but hey! If I like what I see, I'll give'em a holla...

=)

Hey Yel', Would LOVE to know how that kit drives on your car. I'm looking not only for performance #'s, but also straight drivability comments. i.e. tranny upgrades? lsd installation? gas mileage..etc.etc...Also, which engine are you testing with a 15lbs. pulley? I know the svt engine is highly compressed, so if you're testing on a svt zetec how is it holding up under that much boost?

I know that's kinda tall order, but I'm really curious to see how this s/c holds its own against jrsc and vortech...

Holla...
