Gotcha, I only drive to work today which is less than 3 miles away. I idle at around 20 in hg and I only saw about 3psi of boost lol. Hopefully I'll be able to get some highway time later today or tomorrow.

I know the thread is old, just wanting some updates of peoples setups. I am considering doing this to my 09 over the winter and into the spring. Just getting some ideas of things.

I'm still hanging around :-)

And I still have the car and logged over 40,000 miles on the ProCharger. Overall I'm happy with it. No noteworthy complaints.

It was a snail to start with and now it's a faster snail. :-)

If you're going to get a blower just make sure you upgrade the rear end to and 8.8 or put a t-lok in the stock one, which is what I did.

But in all reality at the end of the day were you happy with the purchase? I am trying to decide if it's going to be worth my while or if i'm wasting my time on the 4.0?

Looks like you have a really nice car, but in all honesty I wouldn't do it again. I did it because I already had some money into the car with the dual exhaust and 3.73 gears. If you want power go with a V8 and build on that. But please don't base your decision on my input. From the looks of your car you already have a lot invested and I'm sure it will be hard to part with it.

Yeah it's tough to let it go, I have a pic of it with the wife and I at our wedding. Kind of becoming a member of the family. I feel at this point if I have already went this far whats the difference going that much further? lol We will see how it goes, I have a feeling it's going to be a long winter.

I hear ya buddy. With a stock pulley you're looking at an additional ~100whp which certainly increases the fun factor. And with the headers I'm guessing another 10-15. All that with the 4.10 gears will really add some pop! Enjoy the build!

Thanks, I might see about getting a 12psi pulley. Kooks claims 25-30Hp with their long tube headers. We will see how it goes..

Thanks again!
