I have been running a procharger HU on my Corvette for 4 years now.. It was making 657 rwhp with 8psi. I have since built a 383 stroker and am going with a D1 procharger and will have around 12-14psi and should make north of 800 RWHP. Granted, it is on an LSx engine and not a hemi, but the concepts of supercharging are all the same.

You also need to think about other things.
Injectors
Fuel supply
Boost-a Pump, or larger fuel pump
Intercooling
Tuning..<-- this is KEY

You can run 3psi and if your tune is not spot on, you can blow an engine. Your timing, A/F, spark tables, knock sensors, O2's have to all be tuned and spot on. The procharger kits are proven and have been out for years.

Check this kit out and call these guys to discuss.

exactly what getbit said...do not try to find a "budget" tuner. Not saying that you were, but after all the time and money invested in your motor/truck take it to a good reputable tuner for the peace of mind that when you are screaming at 6000 rpm she's runnin good.

email diablosport....tell them you already own a predator....see if they have a file for you for a supercharged vehicle with your mods.......and see if they can send it to you. mikel@diablosport.com this will get you going until you can get a custom tune.

FYI diablosport used to do the programs for procharger and a few other companies with global kits.
