    Your procharger looks really cool. At first I thought it was some sort of turbo.

    Thanks man, Its a D1 unit with some added things that Procharger doesn't add to the kit, But I am loving the way it looks.

    Well I was going to just make a new thread but this seems like a good place...

    I'm about to pull the trigger on F.I. instead of trading in for a gt but I can't decide what's the better option. Keep in mind I DD this car and will be installing myself.

    The single or twin turbo setup that Auto Mafia sells claims you can turn up the boost up to where your making 600rwhp on a stock sealed motor, don't know if I believe it but what do you guys think?

    I know a couple of you guys have prochargers what's the highest boost you've ran, are you happy with the power level, and where did you purchase it from?

    I have been happy with my Procharger as of lately.. It was not what was advertised for the install when I got it, They sent wrong parts, some parts missing most parts needed modified.. it was a mess. Took me awhile to get it right but a lot of it was due to Procharger not doing their job right. I ordered through MPT tuning so I got the discounted tunes. I am in the middle of tuning/data logging on E85 and I am very happy with the power I am getting from it. Also its been very reliable being that its belt driven. I am not sure on power since I am not done with the tune. I will get those once I am finished. I push 10-11 but I am on a D1 unit with 4.50 pulley so if you want that much boost to start you will want to opt for the P1 3.70 pulley. You will want to opt for 90Lb injectors and VMP fuel pump booster as well so you don't run into fuel pump issues. A lot of guys losing fuel pumps using the 65lbs that come with the kit. I have had no issues with fuel.

    @MustangWarrior

    Thanks man very helpful I'm starting to lean towards the procharger. You said you have the D1, what's the benefit to upgrading to that over P1? Also did you have to install a flexfuel senor for the e85 or is the tune all you need?

    Yea I personally really fell in love with the Procharger, The benefit of the D1 unit is it flows way better with better internals, with this I will be able to move forward if I ever want to make the 600-1000hp range which you are not able to do on the P1, Also if you do go with the D1 like myself order a 4.50 pulley which is the equivalent to the 3.70 on the P1 due to flow.

    No Sensors needed, Just DW 90lb injectors or DW400 fuel pump either or ...and the VMP fuel pump booster.

    Nice have been following this. I have the stuff to go e85 but a month ago a family emergency happened and just do not think it’s the appropriate time to move forward with adding that. Btw the car looks awesome. Hope to see what you do to it next.

    Another update on the Nautilus Performance kit, they posted up two graphs on Tuesday for the single turbo kit running 93. On 7lbs they got 443/400 and bumping up to 12lbs got 515/468.

    I just went in on the revised twin turbo kit from super six that a guy is selling for 2k. It has the ported turbo exhaust manifolds, ported turbo flange, and custom 2 1/2 inch down pipe. Just need the injectors.

    Excited to see how it works out, he said he was getting 500whp but based on Kody's results I find it a bit questionable. I almost did it but wanted to give a buddy first dibs and I'm low on funds already because I got new wheels last week.

    Make sure to come back and let us all know how it goes! He did mention something about trimming the passenger side head I think, that was the only part that stuck out to me.

    I went through the build with him. Its legit. He is getting 440ish with e85, pump gas numbers I'm sure aren't that high. His build like Kody is based off the super six kit but you have to remember Kody was the first...the alpha build per say. This build is highly revised, not even using the same turbos. I'm good if we hit 400whp. The price couldn't be beat and it meets my needs. Coincidentally, I was able to snag Steeda adjustable shocks, struts, and seat bars for a crazy low price the same day. Many folks are now starting to part out their builds and move onto newer Mustangs or different cars. Deals are abound.

    How can we sticky this thread? We wanted a boost thread like the other engines a sticky so this thread stays up as a knowledge base for those looking to go FI.

    Wow! I missed out on that deal. You got a great deal. Hope it all works out for you. I am still a little skeptical on the twin SSMS turbos kit as this might be the only one out there. Good luck to you. My goal will be for the 400 hp numbers too! What ever route I choose in the future.

    JMP / JPM ? has a TWIN kit and new revised single kit (it is now in the engine bay not under mounted) for a good entry price as well. Nothing to be skeptical about, this kit is developed by SSMS and tuned in conjunction with MPT. Both reliable and reputable companies. What is scary to most people is they are unsure of the "plug and play" nature of TURBO kits available to us in the 3.7L crowd. Pro Charger is such a well known name, been doing it forever, promises true plug and play (which its not), and so its easy to swallow, but I tell you its lot more expensive than the turbo route (from what I have seen with others build costs). Honestly, I was saving for the Pro Charger, I was going to replicate the D1SC build here in this thread, but for 2k it was too hard to pass up. I am not even able to install this on the Stang for another year or longer. I am going to be overseas still, BUT I am preparing.

    JMP's complete kit (with injectors, fuel pump and tuner/tune) is still $5k though and people have concern on the wear and maintenance of the turbos themselves. Their single turbo kit has done great numbers but I don't really see too much in the way of feedback on the twin kit unfortunately.

    For the one you picked up, wasn't aware that the turbos were different from Kody's build so that makes more sense on how he was able to get so much more out of it. Sad that you won't be doing anything with it for so long though!

    Honestly, its not worth more than 2k. But 2k will get me 100 more horses so I'm good with it and I want to build this myself and really learn on this project. The supporting parts intercooler, oil cooler, downpipes, fuel pump etc. are all pretty much cheap knockoffs or inexpensive items. They are used too, BUT since this is a running kit and the R&D has been done I was willing to go in on it. I will get the tune with the kit too as a good baseline. What I am really paying for is the conversion kit, the ported turbo manifolds, custom 2 1/2 downpipes, the turbos, the electronic boost controller, all the piping cut and pre-fitted. I will be dropping more money at a later date to upgrade the intercooler (if I think this one is not good), new piping (want red or black not the blue), turbo blankets, and turbo screens.

    So my warranty will expire at the end of February. I've previously said that I do want to go FI but I am on the fence. I've pretty much settled on procharger. I don't plan on making stupid amounts of power. I'm just concerned about long term reliability. I don't plan on buying or changing cars anytime soon. I'd like to own the car another 3 or more years and maybe eventually do a coyote swap. I DD my car and do plan to do HPDE/road course. I don't beat on my car but I do like to push every now and then. But really I'm just not sure.
