thanks for the info LCSteve,I recently put a Whipple on my 2017 and was right where you are mid December. I was leaning harder towards the ProCharger and had almost given up the idea of a PD unit because of that torque curve. The following 2 two weeks of research started showing a number of people having long term issues with ProCharger. To make it worse those who were inside warranty periods could not get anything approved under the warranty. Call some shops who sell and install or have both. When I was speaking with Livernois they said they would do it if I was dead set on it but really preferred to go with a different setup like a PD. Steve at RDP also had some good stories to tell about ProCharger as well. It was his experiences selling them that kinda tipped me over the edge to the Whipple.
Another consideration which always loomed in the back of my mind was the intake setup of the ProCharger. Due to the location of the unit there was really no good option for the filter and it sucks a lot of hot air in. If I was going to end up with the ProCharger I planned on getting the Maverickman cowl hood to allow for better air. I'm still considering it though but in letting my wife absorb the cost shock of the Whipple.

I have heard similar stories of procharger and that is really the reason I haven't already ordered one. I started this thread to be persuaded to go Procharger, but I think I have been further convinced to go with the Whipple. Procharger has the ability to be a better driving experience imo, but it just has too many red flag stories. The latest one is that their intercooler setup is almost completely blocked by the bumper on our SS which leads to very high iat's. This is a new one on me and have no experience with that statement, but the shop who said it is a very reputable place with much experience on our cars. This is something to look at for those going centrifugal style to try to avoid higher iat's and heat soak. Might be in for a negative surprise. Not trying to bash Procharger at all. There are many happy people on this forum and elsewhere making great whp and fast passes all over the country. For me though, I am now fairly certain the polished Whipple will be sitting atop my motor. Thanks to all those who replied and helped me make a decision. LCSteve- have you had enough time with your new setup for an accurate impression? Are you loving it?
