05-11 procharged v6s are producing an insane amount of horsepower on the blacktop..I don't have one on my V6, but I did buy a Procharger for my '68 stroker. It cost me over $2,000. In my opinion, it's not worth the money to get a reputable brand for a V6.

Wow! First off, I Always think it's worth it to go with a quality brand. Quality brand doesn't only mean more HP, it also means it won't blow your F'ing car up:shigrin
I don't understand that logic one bit:nono:. You can get nice power out of the six and with a bit of work damn nice power. Look at what some 4cyl cars are doing with turbos.
I would say it would NOT be worth it for the six or the gt unless you planned on keeping the car for at least another 5 years, or however long it takes to drive the 5-8 thousand dollars (that you won't see in resale value) worth of added acceleration out of the car
agreed...ive invested 9 grand in a car which i could have paid 3 times over but at the same time i also have a gt..the gt just has natural power..if a person should have the cash..gt would be the way to go..however having said that..im still happy with a v6 thrashing v8s on local highways...my mileage has gone down from 26 to 23 mpg which i dont mind at all...I could have worded my post better. I would never suggest getting anything other than a quality brand. What I meant to say is that I don't think it's worth the money to spend what you need to for a quality blower and and carb on a V6. I spent $2300 for my Procharger and another $800 for my Holley blow-thru on my '68 347.
I know there are plenty of you out there that have gained significant HP with a blower on a V6 and I'm not questioning your judgement. All I'm saying is that for me to invest that kind of cash, I'd be starting with a V8.
Just my opinion. My 4.0L is a daily driver (130 round-trip commute). I'm fine with the 31 MPG I'm getting.
