-ProCharger P-1SC Supercharger System
It’s always a good day when I see an LX/LC-Chassis vehicle (i.e. Dodge Charger, Dodge Magnum, Dodge Challenger, Chrysler 300C) pull into the parking lot of National Speed, Inc., especially when it’s accompanied by that distinct HEMI V8 rumble. There’s just something about these cars that I absolutely love.
As with most owners of these vehicles in factory form, they all have about the same thing to say after a few months or ownership, “I’m used to the car now, I wish it were just a bit quicker.” That’s the only thing about these cars, the power:weight ratio is a little off. So, do you make your comfortable street car less than by reducing weight? Of course not. You simply add a little boost pressure.
So, that’s what Timothy decided on with his 2009 Dodge Challenger R/T; a ProCharger P-1SC supercharger system. Since this car is more of a sleeper street performer than anything, we opted to go with ProCharger’s helical gear set option, to keep the supercharger gears quiet during operation
