Default New Procharger variable pully supercharger

Procharger i-1

Looks to be an interesting concept, I like the optional touchscreen programmer with lockout pin for valet mode, talk about sweet!

Gotta be hella expensive though...

I wonder how tuners will tune for that bad boy... with the constant psi change.

I have no idea why, but I want one.

I'd setup my 4 modes as:
Road Race: ~600 rwhp
Drag: ~700 rwhp
DD: ~500 rwhp

They estimate 35% over the cost of a standard procharger!

Looks good in concept, i wonder how they'll deal with engine timing on the fly, less timing with more boost, and more timing with less boost. Maybe this is a not a on the fly thing, I could see 3-4 different tunes, available on demand, but not on the fly in our case. In any case, out of my reach for now, I'll go back to my future wet nitrous kit with a TB plate, and all the safety nannies, even a cam is out of reach for me now, it's tough to keep up with the hobby with 3 kids, a wife and 2 houses to maintain, but i'll add more power to this biatch shortly, one way or another
