I-1 Procharger would be perfect

The normal procharger kit is a great kit and at least someone is willing to pay as much attention to our cars as to the 5.0's. However, the new technology they have in the drive system of their I-1 series of blower would be more of a sweet spot for our low bottom end torque.

Apparently you can now have full boost by 2k rpm, and also have all of the benefits of the top end of the centri as well. It is like having a roots and centri blower at the same time. Now all they need to do is come up with the kit to bolt them up to our cars. I would be willing to bet that they might just do that.

They already have them for Camaro v8, challenger v8, and mustang 5.0. Would make these little v6s feel like pullied 03 cobras. Plus because the drive system of the blower backs down when you are not in the trottle, heat soak is minimal and goes away very quickly.

Interesting post I never thought of that blower for my car was set on going with the pro charger setup but I may be willing to postpone to see if this will come available.

I think I'd just be in Sport mode all the time, so going with the psc is probably less expensive and realistic for me.

The reason I think they might come out with a kit is that they still have yet to update the current kit for the 2013-14 model years. With the advent of rapid prototyping, they could put one together without a great deal of [email protected] As apposed to a few years ago when prototype kits had to be hand fabricated. I remember people complaining about supercharger kits back in the 80's and 90's because they would not bolt up.

Same goes for the intake manifold. I looked on edlebrock's website and they have got a huge shop that specializes in cnc and rapid prototyping. If they where motivated and had a 3.7 on hand for digital xyz measurements, a prototype 3d printed composite manifold for our cars could come to life in a matter or weeks.

I am also waiting in hopes of news regarding the I-1 setup. I am planning on getting the D-1SC charger installed in April so hopefully they'll say something before then.

I wonder if you could just buy the supercharger and electronics and have someone make a bracket for it and do a custom intercooler and piping.

Surely a highly competent shop could do that sort of thing, however with that amount of labor involved you are now into custom turbo terrritory.

If they made this for the V6 I would get it. Hopefully, by the time I get all my other mods done they will have decided to make it for us.
