Anyone Supercharged with the Cobra Jet intake?

I have a 2012 GT, Kooks headers, off road x pipe, deleted resonators, Flowmaster American Thunder exhaust, and I just recently installed the Cobra Jet intake. I am now thinking of trying a Procharger. Is there anyone out there that is supercharged or turbo charged with the CJ intake?

From what I understand it is. Procharger said I should be able to stretch the input onto the throttle body. I know a bunch have done it with the Boss intake but was curious to see if there is anyone that has tried it with the CJ.

Lots of people. It blows my mind how a different throttle body opening just makes everyone crazy.

Just wanted to see what the results were. I have heard mixed results with the Boss intake. I know the goal of the CJ intake was to illuminate some of the issues of the Boss intake a lower RPMs. Wondering if the CJ helps with a blower.

With the throttle body and Cai it cost around 1,500 and yes it's good for roughly 10-15 over the boss intake

The boss and the CJ only work if you use them for what they were designed for, high Rpms.

Not exactly true. They developed the CJ to overcome the issues of loosing torque on the low end like the Boss. Also, according to the guys from Power by the Hour, they saw gains of over 27 rwhp (over the Boss intake) after a tune by Lund Racing. I was originally going to upgrade to the Boss intake but after reading a few results like this, I went with the CJ. Not to mention it looks great under the hood. I was just hopeful there was someone out there that took this to the next level with a blower.

Here ya go. Give PBTH a call and laugh at them.

Heading to the dyno next week so I will have my own results.

Was just asking to see if there was anyone with a CJ and a blower. Just a simple question.

Dyno numbers are like belly buttons.........everyone has a different one. Don't get me wrong it's a great tuning aide.........a good calibrated set of Klondike's will give you more information...IMHO

Wait people are still referencing TV shows and the Car Rags for reliable unbiased results?

What was it P.T. Barnum said?

Umm...If I may ask...What's a Klondike? I'm thinking an ice-cream desert or that place in Alaska where some folks are finding lots of gold

rickw007, love your question. This entire thread makes me laugh. I originally asked a specific question and all I have got back are comments, opinions, and odd remarks. But no one has responded with a "yes". So I guess if I decide to get this Procharger with the Cobra Jet intake there won't be a lot out there with the same setup. If for nothing else, I may do this just to be a little different. Not to mention the 600+ ponies.

Guess you can't understand post # 4 where I said "lots of people" and watch out 600hp........

For some of you young whiper-snappers that haven't spent much time around old drag racers the Klondikes were what we called the electronic timing system. I think it was first introduced at one of the NHRA Nationals in 1963........as for Klondike Bars...when sleeping in our trucks at the strips....because we didn't have enough money for a motel....we ate corn dogs and Klondike bars........

Is a wiper-snapper from 1963 the same as today's whippersnapper?

Rapinator you say "lots of people". Hmmmm none have responded. Haven't seen a single post or a picture anywhere on the Internet. Spoke to a few of the guys at Procharger and there not sure they new of anyone that has that set up yet. So if you know "lots of people" with a Cobra Jet intake and a supercharger please point me to them as I would like to ask a them some questions and get their thoughts on how they like it.
Your help would be appreciated.
Thanks

Do your own research. I'm not going to hold your hand.
There is plenty of people with the CJ with vortech,procharger and turbo setups.

It's a different throttle body opening. A little fabrication and you have it. Not sure what is so confusing about that.

Don't really even need fabbing skills. Some pipe bends and a sawzall and some couplers if you wanted to just get it working or mock something up to take to a shop to get welded together.

Paxton and Vortech sit too close to the TB and would contact. TJ with the comp orange coyote swapped 04 GT had to swap over to the Boss from the CJ because he put on a Paxton.

I have seen one in person myself. And I could find it on instagram but don't know any contact info for you. It was a cobra jet manifold with a vortech/paxton supercharger on it. Don't remember exactly which...but there was a custom fabricated piece of piping on the last part of tubing up to the intake itself otherwise the kit was the same. As stated before just a small bit of fabricated piping will get the job done. Shouldn't be anything too complicated. Hope this helps

I was looking into it. I was looking at Vortech/Paxton but the man thing was that an adapter would have to be fabbed to work with the Cobra Jet. The Cobra jet is set up as the large oval TB and not the circular one that all the Cetri's are set up for. Can be done was told I just had to pay for custom fabricated adaptor

Thanks for the info guys. I did look at the Paxton/Votec but per their tech guys, I would have to make a spacer and actually lifted the intake because of how close the blower is mounted to the throttle body. At that point I would have to change the motor mounts to lower the engine so the hood would close. So that is when I decided to look into the Procharger. Contrary to Rapinator's thoughts, I wasn't asking how to do it (I have the shop, tools, CNC Machines, and knowledge to fabricate just about anything) I just wanted to see if there was anyone that had any direct experience with this setup to see what they liked or didn't like. I was being nice but starting to think Rapinator is just a "tool" himself. But that's all good, I guess you find them everywhere. I am new to this site and thought it would be nice to get other's opinions on things. Unfortunately for me he was the first knuckle head to comment with completely useless information.

I read this as "I've read it a few times but don't remember where, sorry" lol! Yeah op, don't ask an open ended question like "anyone supercharging with a cobra jet intake" on a forum where people come together to help each other (or maybe that's my bad assumption?) cuz you'll get a lot of ifs ands and butts! Lmao!
