$8K seems very high if you ask me. The kit is what, $5.5K? That's $2.5K for install and a tune? Seems very high if you ask me but I have no first hand experience. We have quite a few reputable shops in the area, where exactly are you located?

Way to High. I had a Procharger put on my 04 Mach 1. $1300 with the tune...
1300 is a lot of money, but it seems that it is an acceptable price for an installation. I whope i find something like that for when i get my twin turbo kit.

The price could be very fair. I depends what other (necessary?) upgrades that you are getting.

If you are also adding a boost controller, Walbro fuel pump, dual valve springs, and 60# injectors then $8000 including labor sounds reasonable. Without these goodies you should be able to do considerably better than $8k.

I couldn't stop there and went for the methanol injection and the blower cam, with fuel pressure/boost gauges, & muffler delete for about $10k.

In VA though

Comparring a Mustange to a GTO is apple to ornges with labor times but I still think thats hi.
I am under that price wise and thats with the shop getting a boost a pump, injectors and spark plugs. with 4 hours factored in for a tune on the dyno. I would think you could do better.

Even if they charge 2k for labor and at $60hr that something like 33 hours to install? Thats way too high to me! Me and my brother installed a procharger on my camaro in a day, a complete intsall.

Best place I know off in that arrea is www.eastcoastsupercharging.com in Cream Ridge, NJ. Check out their web site. That's where I would go especially with a Procharger D-1SC for which you will need a qualified tune. While you are it get a cam as well.

Thank you very much for the plug lancey!:)

I am going to send an E-mail to the mods here and discuss becoming a supporting tuner on this site. We are mainly a Corvette shop, however it seams that we are doing more and more GTO's with what we feel are outstanding results. We have several stock engine maggies that over 500rwhp & Tq., custom blower cams, alky kits, overdrive balancers etc etc.

We have produced the fastest Procharged corvette that is only second to our new Paxton supercharger kit that has ran 9.33 @ 147mph. Along with nitrous assisted Maggies running 10.02 @ 140's and so on. We hope to continue this venue in the GTO world.

Thanks, Doug :gears:

You could see if 'Vette Doctors will do it, they're on LI, otherwise you're going to have to head to CT or NJ. Try Mongillo Motors, they're a sponsor on the left, they're in New Haven, great guys, they installed my headers and if I ever get a Procharger will most likely be installing that too.

I've been eye-balling your website (ECS) ever since Frank Beck (Rossi Pontiac) took me for a ride in his car... Super-clean Maggie install; looks factory. Doug, you should get involved here; since riding it Frank's car, I keep thinking about getting a supercharger.

Oh, okay scrap 'Vette Doctors then. ECS is huge with the Corvette crowd, I would not hesitate going with them. Mongillo has alot of experience with F/I, Edgz06's GTO (he's a co-owner) is one of the fastest in the country, it runs an STS turbo. I know for a fact he's tuned one 600RWHP Procharged GTO and at least another Maggie GTO. Just call them up to see what they'll charge.
