ProCharger makes it easy to add big power to several cars, trucks, and other vehicles with its bolt-on supercharger kits. One of the most impressive applications of the product is the supercharger system for the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, which can boost the standard truck’s power by up to 50 percent.
The Chevy you see here has been upgraded with the very first Stage II kit that ProCharger made for the 2020 Silverado with 5.3-liter V8. The truck’s owner, Jose Fabian, says he gained over 140 horsepower at the wheels, which is a big boost over the 5.3-liter’s stock 355 horsepower. The Stage II system features a larger race intercooler and a high-flow supercharger inlet and filter over the standard kit.
ProCharger says that its supercharger kits add as much as 45 to 50 percent more power. It’s a claim backed up by the Silverado you see here. The company says those gains are due in part to an effective air-to-air intercooler and its P-1SC-1 ProCharger unit.
The systems are designed with mounting locations that help avoid heat soak and can provide a reliable 7-8 psi of boost without worry of engine damage. Superchargers typically drain a small amount of engine power to produce boost, but the company says that its belt drive setup is efficient and durable to avoid soaking up too much from the engine.
Perhaps the biggest benefit of ProCharger’s systems is their ease of installation. The company says that its kits can be installed in just a few hours with common hand tools that most people already have in their garage. There’s no permanent modifications and the grille doesn’t have to be removed. Essentially, the kit can be removed with no damage to the engine.
Pricing for the kits starts at $8,698 and tuner kits start at $6,798. Pricing varies depending on the truck’s specific configuration, but you can check here to find pricing for your model.
