ProCharger Super Charger for 2011 3.8l JKU Rubi

Wondering if anyone has installed a ProCharger system on a JK? I have used them on my Hemi truck and My neighbors 2010 Camaro SS and have found them to be quite impressive. I called ProCharger and they referred me to a company in Colorado who is designing a ProCharger kit that will be available soon. Is ProCharger too powerful for the 3.8l? Is this why there isn't much information on the Procharger for Jeep 3.8?? The only information I find are these pages.

Any information on the best kit for a 3.8l would be awesome!

Thanks
Allen

I personally know the guys building the ProCharger kit here in Colorado.

ProCharger is not too powerful for the 3.8 as long as boost is kept in check which it is with this kit. In fact, ProCharger is probably the best centrifugal blower out there (Do the research for the non believers)

There isn't any information out yet because the kit hasn't hit the market.

What is going on here? This is the second Procharger thread this week about a kit for a 3.8 and also the first post for the person starting the thread.

I am personally leery of the procharger kit as it only comes with the S/C and re-map. No, upgraded injectors or anything else that normally comes with upgrading to putting more air down the throat of a motor. The price sure is nice but that is it. Before even considering this S/C I will need boost numbers and dyno charts.

So if this is fishing journey by Procharger, get the numbers up on your website.

Very good points to consider.
No larger injectors?
Intercooler?
Programmer?
Sounds like it is missing a few necessary parts.
More information is definitely needed before I'd jump on a supercharger that is new to the JK market.

I seriously doubt it will be too powerful for the 3.8L. I am running only 8 lbs of boost and it is a serious power upgrade. I know guys running SC's that have 45 lbs of boost on their 4-cyl cars. 45 lbs of boost is territory I'd be cautious of putting into the 3.8.

What's the price?
Procharger's Headquarters is about 4 miles from my house.
I might have to stop by and ask some questions...
