Procharger or blower

What's gonna be the better option for a daily driver and weekend drag fun/street car..


I have an 04 GT supporting mods cams/headers those goodies..

It's my daily maybe see's the drag strip 2-3 times a year and do some racing in Mexico sometimes (rarely)

What's gonna be the best option for both daily drivability and power procharger or tork tech kit?

If procharger what kit? D1? f1?

Well for 1 they are both blowers.
And 2 if your a stock motor car all you need is a p1.
If your cams are NA it's going to have to go bye bye

Procharger is a centrifugal super charger, as opposed to say a roots style blower. OP are you trying to figure out what style supercharger to go with, or just between other forms of forced induction, turbo for instance? I've seen some people confuse a centrifugal supercharger with a turbo charger before is why I ask.

Only real 2 kits out there for a positive displacement blower for the 2v. Tork Tech kit to run a Cobra heaton, and then a Kenne Bell kit. My vote goes to a turbocharger.

I say nitrous honestly. Will work with your long tubes and cams. And will be the fastest choice for your racing style you listed

My 2 cents would go Roots style.. Had one on my last car and installing one one new car next Friday.. For a stock lower end keeping it under 700RWHP they will out perform centri's all day (maybe not top end) and you will feel it too due to instant torque.. Only real problem is traction and that can be fixed too.

Vortech S trim for "budget" performance that works and is proven. Toss on an intercooler kit for lower charge temps. And not the Vortech water/air aftercooler thinger... that is like heat soak you pay for...


If one was to do a positive displacement roots style... Tork Tech and then a TVS or a Whipple. Tork Tech is the only way to get a non KB roots/twin screw blower on a 2V and avoid the intake port issues you run into on the bigger KB blowers.

Well the procharger is essentially a belt driven turbo but i was just wondering which of the 2 is the better option for drivability and both power making

The answer is yes.

Or buy a Novi 2000 or a T trim so you don't ever have to buy a blower again unless you want to make near 4 figure HP.

I thought you were saying that was your deciding factor on what to go with.

You won't really hear a centri blower at wot. You will if you go with the kenne bell though.
The pro charger is going to sound like a jet at idle, then quiet down at wot.

All you need is a p1 on your stock motor. Anything bigger will hurt more than it helps. As you won't be able to utilize it to its advantage.

There is a coyote down the road from me with a f1-a on his stock motor. And it's slow as all hell. If he stuck with the d1 at the same boost level his car would be faster.

If your serious about spending 5k on sc'ing your car find a reputable local speed shop, go down and ask if they know any newbie friendly car clubs or heck if they would be willing to explain and demo the basics with their cars, maybe go to the track to watch their shop car. Nearly impossible to appreciate the complexities of different blower/turbo setups just by reading and watching video. Its a huge investment, go get some real world feedback. Imho

Yep and most set up and are gone in 6 months to a year as well. We just had one by the base called "Xclusive Performance" and just that name alone let you know they'd be done right away.

For a builder that knows their ****, I suggest one goes to some local drive ins and talk too ppl with legit built rides and see who they used. There are a few shops around me that do not suck and are well known and also some very bad ones but the best way to find out is to actually get out IRL and be social.

Or just learn to DIY.
