When it comes to adding safe, reliable real power to many of today’s hottest performance cars and trucks, no one comes close to ProCharger’s power levels. Given the power output of our intercooled High Output (HO) and Stage II supercharger systems and tuner kits, it’s not uncommon for otherwise stock engines to produce more than 600 horsepower on high quality pump gas. On several of these applications, this is essentially bolting on 200+ horsepower, all thanks to ProCharger’s powerful and efficient supercharger and intercooler technology.
Additionally, no one comes close to ProCharger’s ability to further increase power levels if you choose to modify the engine, thanks to the broad operating range of centrifugal technology, as well as ProCharger’s unmatched supercharger, intercooler and drive system upgrade path.
The 600+ Horsepower Solution
The fact is, ProCharger has several applications that routinely produce 600+ horsepower on otherwise stock engines.
Powered by the latest LS-based engines, numerous fifth generation Camaro SS owners report horsepower gains of 170 to 200+ with just 7 psi of boost (L99 and LS3 respectively) when equipped with an intercooled ProChargrer supercharger system. Keep in mind, most of these engines are still completely stock, are still equipped with the factory exhaust manifolds and exhaust system and running on at least 91 octane gas. On the street, 2010 Camaro SS owners have their choice of a ProCharger High Output (HO) intercooled System or Tuner Kit, or an intercooled Stage II System or Tuner Kit. When compared to the HO offering, The Stage II offering includes a larger supercharger air inlet and filter and a larger front-mounted air-to-air intercooler and takes the horsepower up to 615 plus.
There’s absolutely no doubt the new 5.0L, 4V engine in the 2011 Mustang GT is a performance engine. Add a ProCharger High Output (HO) System or Tuner Kit to it and now you have an otherwise 100% stock Mustang (including the factory exhaust system) producing more than 600 HP with just 7 psi of intercooled boost. Not enough for you? Step up to the Stage II System or Tuner Kit, complete with a larger air-to-air intercooler and tubing, and now you’re talking 635+ HP with just 7.5 psi of boost from the P-1SC-1 supercharger. And yes, that’s still on the stock engine and exhaust system and running high quality pump gas.
Equipped with a standard D-1SC supercharger and large, front-mounted air-to-air intercooler, the 6.2L Raptor gets fed 8-9 psi of boost and responds with 600+ horsepower that is ready to shred sand, dirt, grass, gravel, pavement, or pretty much anything else that dares to get in it’s way. Again, this new 6.2L engine is still equipped all of it’s stock components and running on high quality pump gas.
And last but certainly not least, a ProCharger system on an otherwise stock Corvette allows you to not only achieve 600+ horsepower, but 700+ horsepower as well.
LS2 Corvettes were the first to break 600 horsepower (approximately 615 crankshaft hp) by simply bolting on an Intercooled ProCharger system, and the bar was raised further with the introduction of the LS3. However, king of the hill is the LS7 ZO6 Corvette. Equipped with an Intercooled ProCharger system, an otherwise stock LS7 Z06 produces 700+ crankshaft horsepower!
Keep in mind, each of these examples are on otherwise stock vehicles (engines and exhaust systems) with just the addition of an intercooled ProCharger supercharger solution. With more than 16 years of intercooled supercharger system design experience, ProCharger is the undisputed leader and produces the coolest charge air temperatures and largest reliable power gains, giving you the peace of mind you want in your performance investment.
From the dyno to the street and on the track, ProCharger’s engineering and R&D teams go to great lengths to ensure your supercharged and intercooled performance vehicle is everything you expect, and more. Now, just imagine what The Ultimate Power Adder can do for your car, truck or SUV.
Even before the 2010 Performance Racing Industry (PRI) Show opens, the new ProCharger F-4 supercharger is already revving up the racing industry.
In early December, word started trickling out within the racing community about the recently conducted F-4 engine dyno sessions. But now, with the official press release and video from ProCharger, the 3,384 HP dyno pull is literally taking the Internet and PRI attendees by storm. Within 48 hours of the video being posted on Youtube.com, it had already received more than 10,000 views and is being talked about numerous racing and high-horsepower forums and web sites.
Check out the video below:
ProCharger is using the 2010 PRI show to debut the production version of the updated F-4 supercharger. Designed specifically for ultra-high horsepower applications, the F-4 has spent nearly a year undergoing design verification and testing, including advanced aerodynamic and rotordynamic testing at ProCharger, and some jaw-dropping, on-engine dyno testing with some very knowledgeable racers and tuners.
In a recently conducted engine dyno session, the updated F-4 produced a staggering 3,384 crankshaft horsepower at 7,8oo rpm when fitted to a 521 cid BAE HEMI engine running methanol fuel. During this instrumented test session, the F-4 supercharger produced 53 psi of boost while supplying airflow of 4,400 cfm. For comparison, that is a 600 hp gain when compared to an F-3R-139 ProCharger installed on the same engine.
“The new F-4 takes centrifugal supercharging to an entirely new level - 3,200 plus horsepower, or in the case of this most recent engine dyno testing, just under 3,400 horsepower,” notes Dave Werremeyer, Motorsports Operations Coordinator at ProCharger. “We are looking forward to working with some of the top engine builders and racers in the industry to see the F-4’s true performance potential realized on the track and in other motorsports applications.”
Werremeyer notes that the current ProCharger F-3 superchargers have proven capable of 2,000 horsepower on pump gas and nearly 3,000 horsepower on engines specifically designed for use with a supercharger and running alcohol fuels. However, as an industry innovator, the engineering staff and R&D team at ProCharger recognized the desire of racers and engine builders for an even larger centrifugal supercharger design.
“This updated F-4 is the next step in providing today’s racers with the centrifugal supercharger solution they need to produce 3,200 to 3,500 horsepower,” says Ken Jones, CEO at ProCharger. “Building on the proven power and durability of the legendary F-3 family of superchargers, the F-4 provides some distinct and quantifiable aerodynamic and compressor performance advantages.”
The F-4 ProCharger supercharger will be available late in the first quarter of 2011. Watch this blog and ProCharger.com for even more information.
For the 12th year in a row, ProCharger will be displaying at the world’s largest racing products and technologies tradeshow: the Performance Racing Industry Show. This year’s show dates are December 9-11 and will once again occupy the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL. ProCharger’s display will be in the same location as last year, #3506, which is located just inside the two main entrance doors to the tradeshow floor.
Because the focus of this show is racing, ProCharger will be using it to debut several exciting new products designed specifically for high-horsepower applications.
2011 5.0 Mustang Cog Race Kit
Designed around an industry-exclusive, dedicated 50 mm wide cog drive belt, the new Cog Race Kit can mount a wide range of ProCharger supercharger models, including the F-1D, F-1, F-1A, F-1C and F-1R. These models carry HP ratings from 1,000 up to 1,300+ HP. The Cog Race Kit also features a large, front-mounted air-to-air intercooler and legendary ProCharger race bypass valve. One of the first 2011 5.0 Cog Race Kits will be in the ProCharger display at PRI…stop by to see it for yourself.
Be sure to check out the video below.
This Cog Race Kit is the latest in the already extensive lineup of ProCharger supercharger systems and tuner kits for the incredibly popular 2011 5.0 Mustangs. The High Output (HO) System and Tuner Kit were first-to-market back in July, while the intercooled Stage II System and Tuner Kit debuted at November’s SEMA Show in Las Vegas.
ProCharger F-4 Supercharger
At the FAR end of the horsepower range is the new ProCharger F-4, the world’s largest, self-contained, gear driven centrifugal supercharger. At PRI 2010, ProCharger will be showing the production version of this impressive blower.
This supercharger masterpiece features a 16-inch diameter volute (compressor housing) and is capable of producing more than 50 pounds of boost and 5,000 cfm. During testing, the F-4 has already produced nearly 3,400 horsepower when fitted to a 521 cid BAE HEMI race engine on methanol fuel…and that was just on some of the first dyno runs!
Just WAIT until you see…and HEAR the video…
2010 ProCharger Racing ChampionsOnce again, ProCharger-powered racers and their teams had an outstanding season with seven international championships earned across five different sanction bodies. Many of these racers will be recognized at award ceremonies held during PRI and will be stopping by the ProCharger display during the event. Watch the ProCharger Race Update for a full run-down of our 2010 Champions and other record-setting racers.
There will also be an official “unveiling” of a radical, customer-built street/strip car at 9 AM on the first day of the show…let’s just say this is one “sick” car.
Be sure to stop by if you are attending this show and to learn first-hand how ProCharger superchargers can help you meet your performance and racing goals. See you in Orlando!
First Forced Induction 2011 5.0 Mustang in the 9s!
ProCharger has been working with one of the top late-model Mustang performance dealers in the country, Evolution Performance. One of their 2011 Mustang GT “shop cars” has received a “built” 5.0 Coyote engine and was then fitted with a legendary ProCharger F-1C supercharger. To date, after initially running high 9’s in testing, the best pass has been an amazing 9.11-second 1/4-mile blast.
This isn’t just sneaking into the 9s, no, this is combination is pounding on the 8-second door!
Congratulations to Evolution Performance on this outstanding performance benchmark. Have no fear: when you combine the horsepower-happy Evolution crew with the history-making performance of a ProCharger supercharger, we have a feeling this combination will be setting the standard for a whole new generation of 5.0 Mustang owners across North America for a long time to come.
Stay tuned… much more to come. Check out Evolutions video of the F-1C ProCharged 2011 5.0 Mustang on their chassis dyno below.
Whether it’s on four or two wheels, ProCharger-equipped racers continue to rack up record-setting passes on the world famous Bonneville Salt Flats.
Bonneville Speed Week is the premier land-speed event in the world. Featuring both cars and motorcycles, ProCharger-equipped racers have been setting their sights on a wide assortment of class records for the past several years, including using ProCharger-power to claim “World’s Fastest Production Mustang” and “World’s Fastest Camaro” records.
In 2010, there was a new team taking to the salt with ProCharger power. Goldman+Shore Racing out of Payson, AZ used a ProCharger F-1R with a custom cog drive on their fully-built GM straight-six engine in their 1930’s style Ford roadster. When the salt had settled, drivers Clay Goldman and Gordon Foster had both made 200+ mph passes; 207.686 on the short course, and 220.953 mph on the long course, setting two class records in XXO/BFR.
Goldman+Shores Racing: Record-Setting Chevy
Another classic high boy-styled roadster, also equipped with a ProCharged Chevy straight-six and raced by Vince Norton, made a 202+ mph pass before being sidelined with mechanical issues.
BUB Motorcycle Speed Trials
Now in it’s 7th year, the BUB Motorcycle Speed Trials continue to be solely dedicated to motorcycles. This event offers world and national record breaking opportunities to top contenders in many classes. Since land speed records are an average of two passes a rider must first make a down run that has to qualify, or be higher than the current record in the class, and then run a return pass in the opposite direction. The average speed of the two passes determines a new record or not.
With numerous ProCharger-equipped motorcycles at the event, it was just a matter of time before the records started falling.
Running essentially the same combination as they did at Maxton (98-cid, ProCharger C-1 and custom-intercooler), TR and his crew made their Bonneville adjustments and proceeded to shatter the previous bagger record. Making the required two passes, TR now officially holds the record for the World’s Fastest Bagger with a staggering 183.77 mph! Congratulations to TR and the T-Man Performance Racing team for their outstanding record-setting performance.

Klock Werks Racing Records
The Klock Werks Team showed up in force, with multiple motorcycles and multiple riders, including the mother-daughter-daughter team of Laura, Erika and Karlee Klock. Riding a ProCharger B-1 supercharged and intercooled 2006 Harley Dyna named “Dyna-MITE”, both Karlee and Erika entered the 150 mile-per-hour club with passes of 151.754 and 150.239 respectfully. Thus, each sister received their 150 mph medallion, and each got a record in different classes on the same bike!
The ProCharger event crew is gearing up for back-to-back HEMI events by displaying at the 3rd annual LX & Beyond Nationals, July 17 & 18 at Quaker City Raceway near Salem, OH.
After the previous weekend’s very successful and well-attended Chrysler Nationals at Carlisle, PA, ProCharger will be displaying at LX & Beyond with Pickups Plus Cars, a ProCharger dealer located in Columbus, OH.
ProCharger HEMI Supercharger Giveaway

ProCharger superchargers have long been recognized for the industry-leading power and reliability they provide on both street cars and cars set up for drag racing. Today, more and more ProCharger intercooled supercharger systems are finding their way onto cars built for all-out, high-performance driving on winding road courses and race tracks around North America.
When compared with street driving and drag racing, the demands being placed on a supercharger system operated on a road course are significantly higher. Whereas a street or drag car may only see a few seconds of full-throttle acceleration, a road course car goes through multiple full-throttle applications during a single lap.
With most lapping sessions lasting 20 to 30 minutes, road course drivers spend at least 3/4 of their driving time on the throttle. To put this in perspective, a street car making 12-second 1/4 mile passes would have to make approximately 75 passes to equal the amount of time spent on throttle (and in boost) that a road course driver experiences in just one 20-minute lapping session! That is a LOT of time spent in boost…and that was just one session. A driver at a typical road course lapping day can log as much as two hours of on-track driving time.
C5 ZO6 Corvette
As if a stock ZO6 Corvette wasn’t already the ultimate track car, Tom Snitzer enlisted long-time ProCharger dealer Bob Beam to build an even more wicked track animal. Snitzer’s C5 ZO6 now takes to the track with a built 402-cid LS2 equipped with an intercooled ProCharger F-1C supercharger set up.
On the dyno, this car has laid down 804 rwhp and 728 ft.-lbs. of torque. On the track, it simply lays down rear tire tracks from the exit of every turn.
3V Mustang GT
Since their introduction in 2005, Mustangs equipped with the 4.6L 3V engines have established a loyal and dedicated following among the Ford road course faithful. Doug Hammond and his NQS Performance team set out to build a corner-carving Mustang that can run with most any high-dollar track toy that shows up, while still be completely comfortable and driveable on the street. Running a ProCharger HO Intercooled System on the otherwise stock 4.6L 3V, Hammond’s Mustang is set up for multi-driver, all-weather, all-weekend road course fun.
2010 Camaro SS
To showcase the Pedders Suspension components he markets, Peter Basica equipped his 2010 Camaro SS with a ProCharger HO Intercooled System to enhance the performance of the stock LS3 engine. This car now produces 558 rwhp and 499 ft.-lbs. of torque and like the the NQS Mustang, is set up to be driven in multiple, back-to-back on-track sessions giving demonstration rides and generally laying waste to tires and brake pads. This car also participated in the 2009 Optima Ultimate Street Car Challenge and was driven by Indy car great, Paul Tracy.
Wanna go for a ride in the Pedders Camaro? Sure you do… just remember to please keep your head, hands, arms and legs inside the ride at all times…
Since introducing the industry’s first self-contained, gear driven supercharger back in 2000, ProCharger’s design has proven itself over millions of miles and countless passes down the drag strip. With it’s billet aluminum transmission case, industry leading step-up ratio, high-efficiency compressor and aerospace billet impeller designs, ProCharger’s lineup of high-efficiency superchargers have become the standard by which others are measured.
Now, ProCharger is extending our lead even further with the introduction of a helical gearset for a significant reduction in supercharger sound levels. This new helical gearset, along with a few other internal design modifications, results in a supercharger with all the same power potential as the standard blower, but at reduced sound levels, especially at engine idle speeds. With this new offering ProCharger becomes the first and only supercharger manufacturer to offer customers a choice of gearset design and noise level, as the standard design continues to be available.
We know that many ProCharger owners want the world to know, and hear, their new-found ProCharger horsepower. However, for those owners who want a more stealthy horsepower profile, the new helical gearset option provides that choice. Additionally, not only is ProCharger the only supercharger manufacturer to offer customers their choice of sound levels, ProCharger is the only centrifugal manufacturer to offer noise reduction on it’s “upgraded”, highest flowing street/strip model.
The new helical gearset is available on ProCharger P-1SC, P-1SC-1 and D-1SC supercharger models and must be specified at the original time of order. For more information, see your ProCharger dealer or give the ProCharger Sales Team a call at 913/338-2886.
ProCharger was featured in a recent edition of Chevy High Performance Magazine’s“Insider” series of articles. ProCharger’s own Cary Pangrac (left) and Jim Summers (right) went into great detail as to what goes into building today’s high-horsepower street and race engines, while also giving readers an in-depth look into ProCharger’s “ultimate power adder” philosophy that goes into every supercharger system and kit that leaves the facility.
By now you have all surely either seen or heard about the new LS9 ZR1 Corvette from Chevy. Recently a new ZR1 customer put his on a chassis dyno in stock form and saw 535 RWHP. A big number indeed, but that’s what an Intercooled ProCharger system already does for an LS3-powered C6. Our own Corvette LS3 R&D car was driven off the showroom floor and into our shop. We bolted on a ProCharger Intercooled Supercharger system and instantly made 530 RWHP, and this car doesn’t even have an aftermarket exhaust! Bolt a ProCharger on a Z06, which has an extra 75 horsepower from the factory, and forget about a ZR1 keeping up with you on the strip.
Yes… We are proud that our product will bring a base model Corvette to ZR1 power for less than half the cost but what if you throw a few more modifications at that potent LS3 engine? A recent ProCharger customer posted a dyno sheet, from some recent work he had done, on CorvetteForum.com. The car went into the shop stock and came out with a ProCharger intercooled supercharger system, an aftermarket camshaft, ported throttle body and intake, and custom dyno tuning and made 684 RWHP! Not only is that rear-wheel number 46 ponies above the ZR1’s crank horsepower number but all of this was done in only four days by the crew at Cartek, which is a respected Corvette tuner and ProCharger dealer.
We understand the ZR1 comes with many benefits other than a big power number, but if it’s horsepower your after then a ProCharger supercharger is your choice.
