Well since it was finally official last night, Andy knows what I'm talking about LOL, I thought I would post up.

Andy go ahold of me the end of Nov. first of Dec & made me an offer on a Procharger F1D installed along with the new motor that I just couldn't refuse. Lets just say I will most likely be referring to him as "The Godfather" from now, haha. So finally yesterday I was able to get the funds together to pay for this addition. I will only pay cash for toys like this & some of my accounts where being A-holes.

Still need to get together the money in the next month or so for a new tranny to go along with it. Already have a BB Stage 2 valve body & Andy says we can try & keep it about 600whp but that stock tranny will only last a couple weeks with me driving it & 600whp. :rolleyes: With a new tranny in from the start we are going to be looking for around 700whp on pump. :D I know theres a few of you who knew my plans as I have been asking some questions, wasn't making any annoucement until it was all paid for.

Originally my plan was to add a turbo next winter & enjoy a nice NA motor for about a year first, but as I said before this offer was to good to pass up. Plus I will get to enjoy some serious big power in just a couple months. Sorry HB, never rule out the possibility of a turbo in the future & I do still have another Jeep also.

HUGE THANKS to Andy he is one hell of a guy & has made a customer for life.

The plan is to get the Jeep down to him in the next couple weeks & let him start working on it. So I'm sure he will be posting up a nice start up vid & some numbers when the time comes.

Yeh it was hard to keep it to myself. You'll have to upgrade to the F1 after the new motor goes in.

Thanks Chad, looks like we wont be getting that NA dyno pull.

You get your exhaust fixed yet?

Jim
Not yet. Working on getting it in soon. Just made it to the first oil change. With the leak, the faster I go the better my mileage. It was going up cruising at 90mph. :silly:

Congratulations Jim, that thing is going to be a freaking beast. What are you going to do about a fuel system?

Heck just keep driving faster than. Loved that vid you sent a couple weeks ago.

Thanks John, we are upgrading to the dual pump setup. It will be fine unless I switch to race gas & crank the boost up. Than there is the possiblity of running out of fuel. I will need some time to adjust to all the new power anyways.

No worries Jim. You can learn with the Procharger what a Jeep is like with some power and when you're ready to really step up and graduate, give me a shout. Hahaha. Congrats on the new found power. You'll love it.

Thank you, been jelous of a lot guys on here myself. After seeing Bil, Brian & Eskle run last summer I knew I just had to do that.

Thanks HB. The ease of adjustability on the turbos can't be beat. That F1D should be good for at least 900whp I've been told. Need to do the TC & rearend before I go near that though.

Nice Jim, are you doing a built motor also? What's the specs?
Thanks Chris, The motor's somewhat in sig. Its just like Chads except I will be getting a bigger cam. 385 w/Apache's & a blower cam instead of the one in the sig.

Congrats Jim! I was gonna actually install this on my stock block ,but because of the internal step of ratio of this blower I could not slow it down as I would.see too much boost.... This is one bad mofo you have there and will make a boat load of HP Jim..... Mike aka 9SECSRT runs this blower on the Blue site and runs 9.7x's at 142 mph on blower only with a forged block and his supporting mods....
