That set up is very competitve against the big turbo cars in NMCA drag racing. Procharger is the one and only supercharger that seems to have a chance against the turbos, and drivers have won championships with Pro Charger. They sound pretty bad *** too.

The compressor housings are enormous. Need a minature version for the BP.

I wish I could say more, but watch the catalogs. I've been to their facility many times for work and have seen some things that they are working on.
