Parker Performance ProCharger Buyer's Guide for Supercharging your 2015+ Ford Mustang GT!

Parker Performance ProCharger Buyer's Guide for Supercharging your 2015+ Ford Mustang GT!

Thankfully, in today's marketplace - you'll have great success with almost any modern blower setup. Today, I'd like to focus on the Procharger option, a Centrifugal Supercharger for your 2015+ Ford Mustang GT! 

In our experience, the consumer has so many great options, that once they finally decide a brand of supercharger, then they're left wondering what OPTIONS they should choose. 

So let's dive into what we like to call the PP Spec'd Procharger Kit for your S50 Mustang:

Which Kit? Stage II or bust! Look, with the Stage II, one of the best benefits, in my opinion, is that you get the dedicated 8-rib supercharger pulley belt drive setup. You can throw your supercharger belt at the races and still make it home (albeit N/A) without overheating your motor, as the water pump pulley is not associated with the blower belt. In addition to choosing the Stage II, most of our customers will opt for the "Tuner Kit" in a Stage II configuration, as this is a more affordable option, and is suited for guys that want to have a brand name tune and a matched set of high quality aftermarket injectors. Now, this doesn't mean that you should ONLY be considering a Tuner Kit. In fact, if you don't already have an aftermarket tune and injectors, you may start out with their full system, which includes a set of injectors & a Procharger base tune file. 

Which Head Unit? Go ahead and spend the money upfront for either a P1X or D1X head unit, skip the P1SC. I've only ever had one customer be completely satisfied with the P1SC power levels. Every time someone opts for the upgrade, after the initial purchase, you're spending thousands of dollars and several weeks downtime. Whereas it's only a couple hundred bucks to make that upgrade at the initial purchase.

Which Intercooler? Get the upgraded Race Intercooler (this recommendation transcends blower brands and is a universal suggestion). You'll never* have a problem with too cool of a charge air temp. But you will certainly have issues with too hot of one. Spend the money on this upgrade in the front end, no matter which blower setup you go with. The bigger, the better.

Which BOV? Get the Race Valve BOV. It's just the quintessential Procharger sounds that really make the car

Which finish? We suggest the all black setup for the cleanest underhood look. We've done the polished, and unless you're going to be polishing your head unit before ever car show, I don't feel like that's the best option for most of our customers. The satin is fine, of course, especially if you're not one to be wanting to pop your hood and show off, but to me, it's just a little on the ugly side. 

We hope that these tips will help you in the determining of which kit and options are going to be the best for you and your car / goals.

    P-1X / D-1X Upgrade

     

    The ProCharger P-1X and D-1X head units feature the robust, self-contained gearcase that is standard on most ProCharger models, but with a new aerodynamic compressor design that creates cooler charge air temperatures and more horsepower at the same boost level than our industry-standard P-1SC-1 and D-1SC. This higher efficiency design was engineered to be a bolt-in replacement for P-1SC-1 and D-1SC equipped systems and has even greater max-power potential.
