The first thing you will notice about this under hood shot of the ProCharger Stage 2 supercharger system is the 8 rib belt connected to the P-1SC-1 head unit. This belt is now driven off a dedicated crankshaft pulley, compared to the shared 6 rib drive of the HO system. This dedicated belt system is designed to support up to the 1,225HP+ F-1R headunit! With F-1A/F-1C/F-1R blowers already powering cars into the 7 second range in the 1/4 mile, its going to be wild to see what 2015 Mustang owners are going to accomplish this season.
Now just because the word “racing” is being used, do NOT think this Stage 2 system is something that will have you trimming/drilling/cutting into your car. This system is not only very easily installed, is is also 100% reversible, same as the HO system. That’s right, even a kit that supports up to 1,225+ HP doesn’t require any permanent vehicle modifications.,/p>
ProCharger knows that these systems will be used for high HP racing applications that dictate a rock-solid crank pulley design. Using a patented design, we are able to adapt a 8″ supercharger drive pulley onto the factory harmonic balancer, without having to drill or modify any factory parts. (balancers are already pinned from the factory). The ProCharger crank pulley works by using a system of “cam-locks” to securely grip the factory balancer, taking the load off the crank bolt, and ensuring years of service without worry.
Combining this 8″ crank pulley with a HD tensioner near the supercharger pulley, the system was designed for maximum belt wrap. Having a dedicated belt for the supercharger means less belt stretch. (AKA MORE tension and traction) Having a dedicated belt also gives the added bonus of being able to quickly remove the supercharger belt. After removing the supercharger belt all other functions of the car will remain the same, and still drivable.
Even with the best belt wrap possible the tensioner system still needs to be up to the task of holding drive power without slippage. ProCharger’s tensioner is unique in design in that its not only spring loaded, but also allows the customer to add as much pre-load adjustment as they want into the belt. This tensioner has already been proven to support high HP racing applications with dedicated 8 rib belts, ensuring a solid grip for those with elevated boost and power levels.
You can also change the pulley and 8-rib belt without removing the bracket or the supercharger. Making for quick and easy boost changes at the track or in your garage.
ProCharger’s massive 2015 Mustang Air-to-Air intercoolers make a huge visual statement, and have the performance to back it up.
The 2015 Mustang HO intercooler has already been tested to support over 800HP due to its highly effective 630 cubic inch core. While the Stage 2 intercooler increases its cooling core size by a mind blowing 75%, while still fitting behind the factory bumper without cutting/drilling/trimming any factory parts. (Yes, HO Systems can be upgraded to Stage 2 Intercoolers at time of purchase)
OK, so we know that we threw a lot of information out there about this new system, now let’s take a moment and break down the differences from the HO and Stage 2 systems for these 2015 Mustangs.
HO SYS: 8 psi Boost, HO Intercooler, Shared Drive, 45-50%+ power gain
STG 2 SYS: 9 psi Boost, Stg 2 Intercooler, Dedicated Drive, 55%+ power gain
The HO system can be upgraded to Stage 2 intercooler. Both systems can be upgraded to the “Red” ProCharger racing bypass valve.
