Supercharger

How hard is it and what is required to add on a supercharger like a paxton onto a newer truck, such as a 95 Chevy 350 or something. Will major components need changing, and where would be a good place to buy a supercharger kit?

Re: Supercharger


Hmmm...I think Chevy made a 95, with a 350, but not a "or something". 95 was the last year of TBI motors. Vortech, Paxton, Whipple, Procharger all make blowers for the motor. All the requires changing is the chip, and the plumbing for the blower, and the bracket that bolts on with the alternator. Whipple is my personal favorite, but Vortech now makes a intercooler kit for their blowers, which will greatly reduce any detonation you might have. They're pricey though, about 4k for any of the above. Summit Racing sells them all day, along with Jegs.

Re: Supercharger

I would def. go with the Procharger http://www.procharger.com since it comes with an intercooler and everything needed and great instructions. Also, you can get alot higher power gains because of the intercooler and you don't have to rely on a timing retarder or anything.

Re: Supercharger

My dad has a whipple on his 98 sierra w/350, those rock!! don't worry about whats required because the kit comes with everything you need including secondary fuel pump, all plumbing, and electronic add-ons. The thing hauls balls. Before my SS I had an IROC, when that IROC was basically stock with flowmaster, that truck would seriously beat me in acceleration hands down. The whipple is definitely the lowest maintainence most reliable of all for these trucks. A very high quality product, high adiabatic efficiency. Its an easy answer for power, but expensive. [censored] for 4k you can do heads and cam and a whole crap load of other stuff.
