To turbo or procharge, that is the question.

Hey guys so on my 3.7 I wanted to get in the 400's horsepower, enough to smoke a GT. I know AM sells a procharge kit for 5.5k but is there anywhere selling a turbo a different setup? I already have a cervini hood and Roush exhaust on it so clearance and exhaust are no issue.

I knew MPT was working on a turbo kit for our 3.7's but I do not know when it will be offered for sale.

Don't get your hopes up of smoking a GT...415hp with NO mods!! You know they are as crazy as we are about modding!

Smoke a gt...... it can be done. But you are going to have more disappointments then victories. Go with a turbo, procharger you will be smoked by basic bolton 5.0's.

So anyways, i did a little research and i think its between the AM procharger kit and the LPF turbo kit. The only thing is, the turbo kit from LPF doesnt have much info on it

LPF turbo is the way to go.
or turbo in general.

More efficient and supposed to work better with the auto transmissions.
One day I plan to turbo my 3.7, just need to finish school first and make some real $$$ haha

You can get the LPF kit/diablo tuner/ and have it installed for right around 6k.
Not too bad, especially since the kit on low boost will roast stock GTs

Or you can get a plate nitrous system pretty cheap compared to the procharger and turbo kits

It will put a lot of pep in your step too! But kinda cool cause its not all the time, "on demand" just when you want to use it

Do you need a good dyno tune for nitrous though?

It could be argued you need a good dyno tune for all 3. The turbo is honestly the only one i would trust to remote tune after having done a couple myself. Full disclosure however, i have not remote tuned a SC or nitrous, so i may be wrong in thinking that.

Remote tune on nitrous cam be done. It usually takes longer though. As they are going to pull a lot of timing your first few runs. That being said, Dyno tune is the only way I would go for nitrous. Thay way it can be seen right there. Vs having to wait till tuner gets the logs

Methanol has nothing to do with a DD and should never be tuned to where it's needed for power. . This is something else alot of people need to learn.

The turbo.

Even at 450 hp with the procharger you will be looking at the taillights of a 5.0 with less power.

Anyone can make a 5.0 fast, how many people do you know with a turbo'd six banger holding its own against other cars?

To me it would be about the uniqueness of it.

Why do you want to smoke a Gt?

Honestly, I would forget about a turbo or supercharger kit. I would go with a good antenna delete and rear view mirror delete. That should get you to smoke the GT.

Moot question, someone will always be faster. If you do just the basic "on paper" math, a 100 shot will take an otherwise stock 3.7 to ~ stock GT levels. A 150 shot will take it to around bolt on GT levels, so ... depends on how frisky you're feeling.

For the money spent, some people want to do more than just "keep up." If someone wants a turbo because they want a turbo thats fine, but dont go in with the intention of being the top dog, or you'll be nothing but disappointed.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying a turbo'd sixxer is top line, there's always going to be someone faster, especially when compared to the same year 5.0s.

But its also something worth looking twice at.

Nelly the reason turbo is because of how much more torque you get with it and starting at a lower rpms then a procharger.


Unless you get lucky and find a deal like I did (turbo kit 95% complete) and know how to finish it or if you can fab your own turbo kit. If not, then your looking at spending around $5k-$6k for a quality kit.

I'll have around $3.5K-$4K in mine when said and done using quality parts like Tial, Borg Warner S256 extended tip, etc., etc., but again I got a great deal on an unfinished kit.


(Alrefire) Hasan's turbo kit he's selling (post above) is a steal as he doesn't really have any time on the kit before a bad tune blew his engine (2-4 months maybe), it has all the bells/whistles and it would cost you over $5k for what he's selling if you bought it from LPF right now.

Another vote for turbo!! As rapinator said, you're going to have more disappointment than victories if you're planning on smoking a 5.0 just with a procharger. About 80% of 5.0s that I know about are tuned, and/or have bolt ons.. Aka bad mofos on road. Voltwings has raced pro charged 3.7 vs his 5.0, ask him who won.

3.7 is a super cheap platform to make good power.. If you're doing it right. At the same time you also need to think how long you're going to keep your car. Dumping in $6k for a decent kit + another $4k in supporting parts and labor is quite a hefty amount.. Which wouldn't add to your car's re-sale value.

Nitrous will all/most of the supporting mods (for safety n such) will run you close to $2000-2500. Another cheap power adder.

Just my $0.2

Do they even make nitrous kits for the 3.7? AM does not have them on their website.

all about what you want my procharged 3.7 made 406rwhp on 6psi thats around what bolt on 5.0's make around here, i have a smaller pulley sitting around that should be going in soon which i'm thinking will put me in the 420-430 range.. turbo's are cool, if your gonna go with lpf i would not recommend getting the diablo tuner, there's not a lot of tuners out there who use it, nitrous is cool too i've been there done that with this car, it's by far the cheapest way to go fast short term, long term it's very expensive.. i was filling my bottle up once a week. 4.00 a pound for nitrous comes to around 40$ a bottle once a week.. you get the idea

I was looking at a rear mounted turbo to help alleviate the heat issue. If you want to run with the GT's , get a GT. I don't want to spend that much. I want to keep it pretty stock looking and sneak up on a few people. I want that....what's under that hood look!!!! They know how your not a GT...but there's no way you should be going that fast!!!

Rear mounted turbo will spool slowly, and you'll want to shoot yourself every time you change the scavenger pump
