With our baseline established, we enlisted the help of Lance Johansen, Mike Carlson, and Jeff Lacina from Procharger to perform the installation. While these professionals easily had the kit installed in about a day's work, a weekend is probably a more realistic timeframe for someone installing this kit at home for the first time. Follow along as we show you how it's done, and the impressive dyno results that followed the installation.
You might be wondering why you're just seeing a Procharger system for the new Hemi Charger that's been in production for more than a year now. Rather than throwing a system together that was merely adequate, the engineering team at Procharger did what they do best. By spending extra time in the development phase, Procharger put together a kit that is complete, easy to install and maintain, and shows impressive power gains while not sacrificing engine durability or drivability.
Before the Procharger kit was ever installed in a vehicle, it was installed on a dyno engine to be tested and refined. The Procharger engineers made some 227 total engine dyno pulls on their test Hemi before deeming the system ready to install in a vehicle. Once installed in their test vehicles, the Hemi system was again tested and refined through some 192 pulls on the chassis dyno, then street and track tested extensively before being released for retail sale. While this research and development is expensive and time consuming, the end result is a supercharger system with spot-on air/fuel ratios at all engine rpms, and an all-inclusive kit that is easy to install and maintain. Additionally, drivability and power are superb, without sacrificing engine durability. It would be nice if all products we tested were as well engineered as the Procharger system for the new Dodge Charger.
