Paulo nailed it, we are so fricken spoiled it is crazy. 10 years ago nobody was bolting a blower on a truck and running 10s. Honestly, good luck running 11s 10 years ago. I know I was shooting for 12s back then, and it wasn't in a 5000lb truck.

Go for it brother, and don't look back.

Coming up on two trouble free years of daily service from my Maggie. She sees multiple road trips each summer and temperatures as low as -30* in winter.

We'll see how procharger stacks up. I think an advantage of the Maggie is in cold weather,
as it should warm up to operating temp faster than Procharger being on top of motor.

Maggie does heat intake temps though
I had one bad idler pulley assembly that had to be replaced
But it s a great unit. It uses the same tvs2300 rotors as seen on zr1 and in gt500 blower upgrade

I put my Vortech on at about 9k. I've got about 19k on the Jeep now. So 10k with the Vortech. I bought the Vortech used off of Ernie Miller who bought it off of Colt who got it off of YM23 after a rebuild, so the blower has more miles than that. It's a great daily driver, gets better gas mileage and has much better drive ability than stock. I've only had two issues. One was fuel hat hoses that failed and left me stranded, (which I have since taken care of) and I just replaced my transmission that was starting to slip bc of the power that I'm making. I drive 200+ miles per week alternating between the Jeep and another SUV. I've taken it on 500 mile trips without issue. I turned 11.69 at 117 in the 1/4 mile and last time out ran a slower 11.77 bc of traction issues, but trapped 119. This is on pump gas. Back in 2007 Hennessey's fastest Jeep was turning 12.1's at 114 and you paid 35k for the privilege and didn't get a tranny upgrade IIRC. I don't have anywhere near that in my Jeep but have an 11 sec vehicle that drives better and gets better mileage than stock. All courtesy of this forum and all the great guys on it. So IMHO "go for it."
