    Ready to pull the trigger on either the ProCharger Stage 2 or a Whipple Stage 2 and interested where people got the best prices? I don't have the time to call 50 vendors, so I look here to those who have done the hard work.........

    I know the centris are cheaper and are fast, but get a PD blower if you can afford it. I get boost/SC whine from 2k RPMs and up. The centris make power more in the upper RPM levels.

    Oddly enough when I price the Procharger and the Whipple in the kits I want, the Whipple cost less.

    One thing that is important to remember regardless who you are having install the product, is the difficulty of install.

    If you're DIY what is your competence level? Procharger is probably the easiest kit to install. I have no idea how bad the 2018 whipple install is, but it may or may not be in your wheelhouse.

    Or if you're paying a shop, how much do they charge. Quicker, simpler installs always means less time in a shop. Whipple might be cheaper for the kit, but if it takes 5 more billed hours it might cost more (cheaper still, or the same).

    Not knocking whipple, between the two I would go whipple personally. Just there's more to a kit than its dyno graph, and what the internet talks about

    I think for most people you can't go really wrong with any kit out there. They can all make plenty of power with a custom tune, pulley, and bigger fuel. So just try to iron out all the details of costs best you can (you'll never spend exactly what you think, but it's very easy to miss a few thousand if you're not planning correctly).

    Do that and figure out what kind of car you want to drive (street/drag etc whatever), and you should have your answer pretty clear cut

    If Procharger is what you want then to go for it. Whipple stage 2 is more than stage 2 Procharger, no races are won at 2000rpms. Let’s not turn this into another PD vs centri thread.

    Not interested in comparison. Not my first rodeo and it is all about lower cost when on a budget.

    Team Beefcake.

    I've bought 2 kits from him the past 12 months. Procharger and Paxton Stage 2.

    He has the best pricing, I shopped around all the big vendors and he was the lowest.

    When I was looking I actually found MAK performance's P1X custom kit to be the cheapest (bang for the buck) for the Procharger. And it came with bigger injectors, P1X head unit, and custom tuning.

    Ultimately I went with a Whipple because Hypermotive offered a free install though. And I am not disappointed.

    Oh boy, here we go........ Livernois sells (or has sold if they are not currently sold out of them), the Magnuson brand of SC. They are a high quality supercharger. Lots of Chevy guys run them I think. Not as popular with Ford guys. Not so much because of design or reliability, but Whipple, KB, ProCharger has the lions share of the market at this point. I think Jay Leno has basically them same type blower on a car he owns that makes like 1000hp or some ridiculous number.
