Hey everyone,

My name is Erik, I am only of the "OG" techs here at ProCharger superchargers. (literally been here since like 2002 or something)... But I just wanted to introduce myself and also show off our stuff a little bit.

I am a fellow "jeep" guy, and own two of them myself. Although I don't have the funds for a JL personally at this time, I do enjoy my 4 door JK and my "crawler" ZJ as much as I possibly can. However now that we have the supercharger kits for these JLs, it has me really thinking about selling both my jeeps for a nice down payment on the JL.

Cause these things are flat out awesome, and with the 50% power gain from the supercharger... Well its basically PERFECT for everything I would want to do... street drive, tow the waverunner, and overland a bit.


Anyways, if you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask. Here are some shots of the kit installed on one of our company JL's (and now I don't get to beat on this one, since its a company truck, lol)

Thanks for reading!

The power has increased, its still wicked easy to install, and the driving expereince amazing.
(literally feels like how you wished it was from the factory)

This is awesome, but I do have a couple of questions.

Is this a sealed supercharger or do you have to run an oil supply/return line? How often do you need to change the oil? Any dyno graphs of power band? One last one, why does it look like the volute is eating that hose clamp??

I run a D1SC in my 800+ whp mustang. Looks like the JL is getting blown too :)

The P1 D1 F1 are all self lubricated. You change the oil every 5k and the kits usually come with 3 oils. I'll let them answer the graphs but they are very linear. My mustang looks more like a big block that builds whp with rpm vs the huge peak you see with turbos. The PC's just look like that in regards to the hose clamp. They are a tight fit but there is plenty of room for the intake pipe.

I am assuming this is a P1SC1 with a 5" pulley? Fueling is what interests me the most along with the belt routing. I assume it runs off the stock belt routing vs an extended crank pulley like my stage two setup.

For fun here is my Procharged Stang, hope the IC on the JL looks just as sick :) @Texas_Yote on insta.

Why didn't you guys incorporate the stock airbox? Nobody wants those exposed filters.

Is the Install Guide available for review? I watched the video of the install on Motorz and it appears relatively straightforward but always appreciate being able to actually read the official installation doc.

Very cool mustang!! The tuning does have me a little curious, if injectors or fuel pump don't need to be replaced.

How does this work?
The cliff notes version...

Relocate the alternator to a different position, attached the supercharger into its place....
Mount the intercooler behind the grill... connection some clamps and tubing..

And enjoy 50% more power :)

Erik, curious to know if you have one of these units installed on your JK. Thanks for your posting.
Sadly my JK is the early motor. We only make them for the 3.6 :(
But at I stated, I think its days in my fleet are numbered...

This is awesome, but I do have a couple of questions.

Is this a sealed supercharger or do you have to run an oil supply/return line?
How often do you need to change the oil?
Any dyno graphs of power band?

Sealed. Just change the oil every 6,000 miles or so.
We give you enough oil for (4) changes at time of purchase.
I will get graphs up here in the next couple days. We use a "mustang" dyno that is actually set up for emissions testing, so the numbers are always low. However the "percentage of power gain" would remain the same.

Why didn't you guys incorporate the stock airbox? Nobody wants those exposed filters.
Our customers that use them in extreme conditions (the guys really putting them through the paces in the dunes and rivers) have just been running a KN prefilter cover with no issues reported. (I have a couple guys that I tune their 1,200hp sand cars, and they use the same method)

Is the Install Guide available for review? I watched the video of the install on Motorz and it appears relatively straightforward but always appreciate being able to actually read the official installation doc.
Just send us an email to [email protected] and the guys can get you one out. :)
Trust me, its flipping eassssssy. Its a afternoon in the garage with a buddy drinking a cold beverage (or 3) with the TV on in the background... kinda install.


Hope that helps a bit,
Erik Radzins

Dude, congrats on the STANG! My business partner is lucky enough to drive a 800hp stang daily with a P1X on it.
I am in the "dad carpool lane" with my beater lol.

As for the blower, yes the P1SC1 is the standard blower since its a great match for the powerband of this motor.
The routing is basically the same as stock that ran the alternator before. (crazy belt wrap, like 75% of the pulley)
Out of all the JK systems we have sold (and soon JLs) I have never had a customer need another belt.
Its just such a low power level, there's hardly any stress on the belt system.

Will you guys not be offering tuning for these kits? I live in St. Louis i would be happy to drive to KC for a tune!!

Also what is going to be the cost?

Can we get the intercoolers in black?

Thanks, will do! I'm guessing when/if Jeep switches to the BSG system on the V6 that's going to initially throw you guys a curve; will be interested to see what comes.
(BTW, my brother's name is Erik - with a "K" like it should be! :) )

We do offer tuning with the systems now. :)
You send us your ECU and we flash it. :)

Yes sir!

We will get through it, always do. I remember when GM went to DI and people said it was the end of the aftermarket. :)
We not only got through it, but set every record out there :)
