Fresh off the presses and packing more power than ever, comes the news that America’s favorite supercharger manufacturer, ProCharger, has begun shipping GM Supercharger Kits for 2021 model year trucks with the 10-speed 10LXX automatic transmission.
These straightforward boost bolt-ons boast gains of up to 50% more power on pump gas, regardless as to whether you opt to affix your blower to GM’s 6.2L or 5.3L truck motor. Power and perfect fitment meets appeal on all ProCharger systems too, as every setup is engineered with OEM fit and finish in mind, and can be obtained in a variety of pigmented finishes to match the theme of your engine bay.
Just imagine having 50% more power to pull, 50% power to pass, 50% more power to play!
Packing industry-leading power gains courtesy of an air-to-air intercooling setup and the ultra efficient P-1SC-1 ProCharger model, and mounting locations to prevent heat soak headaches, these GM Truck ProCharger Systems sport 7-8 psi of boost in High Output (HO) Intercooled System form. A dedicated belt drive makes power transfer from the engine to the supercharger an extremely efficient matter, and provides peace of mind due to the long-term durability ProCharger has become known for over the years.
One of the primary reasons why durability is such a forte for this particular type of blower, is because it doesn’t have to sporadically and/or dramatically change speeds during gear changes. By coupling the 10LXX transmission’s ten forward gears with the instantaneous performance perks only centrifugal superchargers can provide, you give your 2019-2021 GM truck the ability to overcome discernible RPM drops during gear changes, which translates to having maximum power output on tap at all times.
GM Supercharger Kits From ProCharger Allow For Gains Of Up To 50% More Power!
The 10-speed transmission found in both 5.3L and 6.2L 2021 GM trucks is a collaboration creation between Ford and GM, and it sports some extremely tight gear spacing. This not only keeps the motor in an ideal RPM range at all times, regardless of speed or throttle input, but it also makes the drivetrain combo ripe for centrifugal supercharger shenanigans. To quote ProCharger directly, “It’s almost like this transmission was engineered with centrifugal supercharger power curves in mind.”
One thing to keep in mind, is that due to this transmission’s tight gearing, “down-low torque” is very difficult to determine on a chassis dyno. Holding the transmission in a low gear under full-throttle is not possible without advanced tuning solutions, as the 10-speed transmission will always try to adjust the RPM range, especially at full throttle. The transmission’s computer will automatically force it to downshift, which means that dyno runs cannot begin to be registered until 4,000 rpm is achieved in seventh gear, where the gearbox is inclined to automatically shift around 6,500.
Like all ProCharger setups, 2019-2021 Chevy/GMC truck supercharger systems retain the record for obtaining the industry’s coolest charge air temperatures, largest power gains, and the easiest and fastest installation times. ProCharger supercharger setups truly are like LEGO kits for adult gearheads, with the average unit requiring just a few hours of wrench time in the garage with basic hand tools.
What Does A ProCharger Supercharger Kits Run?
One of the biggest perks of these GM units, is that you don’t even have to remove the grill to install them, and since they are fully reversible, returning to a stock configuration is ultra easy, as there is no need for permanent modifications. Complete systems start at $8,799, with tuner kits starting at $6,899 if you do not require tuning or fuel components.
So be sure to check out the ProCharger website for more details on these all-new centrifugal supercharger systems for 5.3L and 6.2L powered 2021 GM trucks. Also, note that ProCharger superchargers continue to be offered with industry leading availability in mind, which means that kits are almost always in stock, and therefore the average order ships out within just a few days.
