maybe 5K plus install

tough to say. I got a used powerworks for 1500. but then again alot of it needed to be replaced and i have no idea how long it will last. A lot of research and uncertainty comes with used kits. But most of the time, they work and are less than half the cost.

but either way
Injectors are 150$
Tune is around 550$

the thing I like about this kit is that its all self contained. Just change oil every 6k miles apparently. But really to get the car the way I like it's going to cost 10k for alot of things. I just got clutch done/timing so when its time for those again thats when I plan on making a decision. Hard putting that much into an old car when that's like 1/3rd of an st give or take.

Wanted some opinions if anyone is running this kit please share.

Think of it this way.......

Whether your modding your old 1999 ZX3 or modding your 2015 ST

you will never ever get your money back from the "Modding" your doing

So if you are buiding your SVT, go for a budget build or go BIG!, either way plan to be faster than the ST or you should have just bought that or a mustang (which you can get right now for 20 G's)

Sorry i have never driven the pro charger. I have heard great things about it. but if I were to spend that much money, I would go for a 500HP turbo build. if your planing on spending 10K for a baddass car. rebuilding the engine is only about 2 grand. Then you can boost the shit out of it.

I spent about 8, but that included a suspension, svt header, orp, cat back, cams, supercharger, crank pulleys, 2.4 charger pulley, custom air intakes, 17inch, rims, fat tires, suprcharger add ons, suspension arms, tir rods, Front brakes, paint, gaskets, tools, new transmission, torsen diff, svt gauges, profesional tunes, throttle bodys, 60lb fuel injectors, diablo sports maf, water pump and belt accesories, wide band fuel air gauge and countless other maintencance and fun stuff. The build is almost done and im hoping for 275-290hp at the wheels. I had to buy and upgrade alot of parts on my car because 8 months go it was litreally fallng apart.

If you spend 10 grand just for 250-300 hp, i am afraid you might be feeling the hurt when you add up all the other things.

Keep in mind I bought used, talked many people down on prices, shopped amazon, bargain shopped for insane price deals and it still cost me dollars.

If only money wasnt an object. The 2015 stang n st are looking good. But im not much of a pony guy. But I know for sure if I get a gt so much aftermarket I think 10k invested there will be huge horses n alot of burnt rubber

I bought a used PC a while back. In order to make sure everything was damn near perfect, I also had to buy:

Clamps
Couplers
Injectors
Tune (already had XCal 2)
Clutch
LSD
All 3 mounts
OD pulley
Built short block
Various tools, gasket set, cherry picker, etc.

I still have to get the block from Tom and get back down there for the dyno tuning, then next year will be putting in the fuel return/fuel cell. You can add it up to see what'll be invested toward the end. The little odds and ends you may have to get is what will eat up the budget. Definitely recommend adding $1,000-$2000 to your overall budget for the unexpected things. It all depends on how big you want to go.

For the ProC ? You have to request the larger SC unit when you buy it , call and talk to ProC tech , you want the next larger unit
