ProCharger Challenger Tuning Kit Brings 150 More Horsepower

Even if the 2008 edition of the SEMA show is history now, reports concerning high-end tuning kits keep to come up, unveiling all kinds of next generation components capable of boosting a certain engine power. ProCharger is probably the best example we have, as the aftermarket company brought out two brand new Dodge Challenger kits which, according to the manufacturer, can boost the engine power by 150 hp and even more!

And more importantly, although the car is now outputting considerably more HP than the standard model, Procharger says the fuel economy was only slightly altered. “ProCharger-equipped Challenger owners will enjoy outstanding, day-to-day driveability, and consistent, reliable power gains while still running high-quality pump gas.”

Basically, both kits are based on intercooled superchargers with upgraded fuel systems, redesigned air intakes and 3-core air-to-air intercoolers.

“Both the ProCharger HO and Stage II Systems utilize the proven and patented self-contained
P-1SC-1 ProCharger supercharger, a 3-core air-to-air intercooler, OEM-quality mounting brackets and all necessary supercharger and intercooler tubes for installation onto the new Challengers,” ProCharger said in a press statement.

“ProCharger Systems for the 2008 and newer HEMI Challengers feature easy installation, minimal relocation of components, no need to punch a hole in the oil pan, and avoids having to deal with the complexity and installation time and maintenance required for an air-to-water-to-air intercooler arrangement.”

The standard 2008 Challenger is powered by a 6.1-liter SRT HEMI V8 engine which can develop a maximum power of 425 hp combined with 420 lb-ft of torque at 4800 rpm. Connected to a five-speed automatic transmission with AutoStick, the car provides an average fuel consumption of 13 and 18 mpg in city and highway mode, respectively.
