I had a procharger for a very short period of time, did not care for it for a number of reasons. If you plan on only racing once in a while but drive on the street a lot get a twin screw IMO, others will telling you to get a procharger but that is their opinion. I ran a saleen SC on my car for years before upgrading to the turbo, but I only race my car now, otherwise I would have kept the twin screw.

I own a 2011 5.0 with a UPR-spec ProCharger Stg II. I daily drive it at 10lbs of boost and the car is just as happy running 10s in the quarter on 19" tires as it is on the roadrace track. I love the smooth power delivery of the ProCharger on our cars. (of course, tires & suspension are necessary upgrades to get the full benefit of the extra power)

Look into a Roush or Edelbrock. Way better choice IMO. My buddy just installed a pro charger on his car. He was so unimpressed at the fitment. Roush installs easy with very good instructions.

Who will be installing and tuning the unit?

If you are using a local speedshop/tuner, get what they are most familiar with and recommend. This will give you the best drivability and reliable horsepower.

If you will be doing the install yourself and running a canned or email tune, I'm with the others that recommend a PD blower.
