Hello thanks for your comments. It depends if you get the kit new or used. The pro charger is near $6k and the turbo kit is $3k. now if you got the choice of getting either used i would go with the pro charger. For one you get a 60 +% in power increase with the turbo kit and the procharger is 50-100%. I would get the ATi because its much more cleaner it sounds way better and imo its a better power band. Its up to you but im just not a turbo guy. But it does look like a decent kit for the price! You just stand out more imo with the procharger. Imo everyones got a turbo kit its the procharger thats makes the engine unique. people wouldnt even see it if you diddnt tell them it was there. where as a turbo its just right in your face.Hi Wunfstgsr,
Nice build and post! I read both your posts (team integra & honda tech) about your supercharge builds. I like how you keep your car's exterior stock as possible, but the engine all modded. It keeps the cops second guessing if your car has non-CARB parts. LOL!
Anyways, I am planning to install a turbo/SC in my '99 Teg GS-R. I came across 2 kits, Edelbrock 1505 & Procharger C-1A. Like you I am from CA so I gotta use CARB approved parts. Can you give me some advise on the kits or what to look for? Also I know that both kits says they can be used on a stock engine, but I plan to modify the engine, like the pistons, camshaft, clutch and headers. Is it necessary to change the engine block and transmission or was that just your preference? My goal is to reach 250+ WHP. I know your build can easily achieve that but I don't think I can copy your build.
Again nice build and post. I can't wait to start on my build!
If you buy the turbo kit look for oil leaks and shaft play and with the procharger look for rust in the blower housing and damaged fan blades, make sure the fan blades are all in good condition, no chips or broken pieces.
Although this might deter you from the sc but i destroyed the fan blades. I hit a big dip in the freeway and my aftermarket intake arm came off the blower and it sucked a piece of plasic that i still dont know where it cam from cause i have the splash gaurd still there but it broke apprt the fan blades and its about $1,200 to get it repaired just for inspection shipping and the new fan blade and its about a 30 day turn around. but im not gonna give up on it and i will get it fixed when i can but its a bummer. and on top of that i slipped my timing belt and bent two valves and washed the rings on that cylinder.
I took off the head got it repaired and put it back on with a new h.g and timing belt. I put the stock injectors and ecu in and it runs ok but still has low comp/power. I poured a can of Engine restore and it helped out alot, it stopped some of the smoke that was coming out the vc nipple and also restored the compressikon a little, i still have to do another comp test to see how much but it feals allot better and has better drivability. sounds better too. It idles rich at 11 but once i get on it i have a good afr.
once i get some money ill get the block repaired and hopefully get the sc back on and retuned.
p.m me if you dont get the procharger and let me know where its for sale at.
