In these uncertain times, standing still may not be the best option. I remember in the summer of 2019 before all hell broke loose, The biggest Corvette dealer in the country was selling brand-new C7s for $49,995.00. Yup, a base Corvette with a 455hp, LT1 motor and all the goodness of a modern C7 minus the fluffy options. With the sky-high price hikes of used cars these days, I wish I would have bought two.
Over at ProCharger, the world-famous centrifugal supercharger manufacturer, they’ve been adapting to our brave new world as well. With supply chain issues and fluctuating material costs, the company has weathered rough waters but is as strong as ever. Still, the goalposts continue to move.
According to ProCharger, “We are happy to announce that most products are shipping within 1-2 weeks of order. Supplier issues have wreaked havoc since the start of the pandemic, but we’ve focused our efforts on expanding our facilities, manufacturing, inventory, and staffing to keep up with demand. For the few vehicle applications with persistent long backlogs, we are working hard to close the gap and get those orders shipped. But in most cases, ProCharger orders are shipping within 1-2 weeks.”
Great news, but at the end of June, ProCharger will release new products and updated pricing. Prices continue to be impacted by inflation, increased freight costs, supplier surcharges, and many other increases in costs. Hopefully, with this advance notice, you are able to finalize and lock in your ProCharger orders before the increase on June 30th.
The company goes on to say, “If you’ve been contemplating a ProCharger purchase for your car or truck, now is the time to act!
