prodigy turbo

Anyone running a prodigy turbo kit and do a lot of wheelin around wet and muddy conditions? If so how much psi are you running and how many miles do you have on it? Im thinkin about the 12 psi kit but there's not a lot of reviews on these kits.

Turbo vs Superchargers

I am seriously considering a turbo myself. I have ran a Kenne Bell blower on my 03' TJ. Five pounds of boost did help haul 5000 lbs of iron around and operated much better. But it would really be nice to feel what 12 lbs of boost would do in a JK! 91 octane fuel just barely kept my ol' TJ happy in the heat. I thought the power was linear and built it down low in the RPM range. But the 4.0 I-6 didn't like rpm even with a Snow methyl-alcohol injection set-up as the V-6 3.8/3.6 does. That Snow injection did keep things cool and no pinging when I tried an 8 lb pulley (the I-6 has no knock sensor). But adding supplements to the fuel w/o methyl-alcohol got expensive (Octane boost).
A V6 loves rpm and the Prodigy Turbo kit appears to make power well in the rpm range I usually operate, 2500-4500 rpm and the large air to air cooler that the Prodigy kit has would provide a great cooled air-mass for induction. That old KB used an air to water cooler. Great if the air ever got cool in Az!

I don't rock crawl nearly as much in my JK vs that old TJ. I would appreciate more help (read horsepower) at highway speed. Crawling never needed much positive induction except maybe at altitude in Colorado Rocky Mountains.

Like you all, I look forward to reading more about turbos in JKs. Both SC and Turbo kits are running $5-6. It appears the turbos make more power for the buck. Wrenching issue not the issue. Both require a day of labor. Swimming in water mid radiator deep is not my usual off-road activity. Both systems have +/-.

After the holidays and taxes maybe we will get more info. Otherwise, I'll be writing the reports.
