I spent about $3k total on my procharger used. That includes the head unit, piping, 12-rib pulleys, renegade bracket, votech mini race bypass, power pipe, silicone hoses, 12 rib belt, and hardware ($2500), having the head unit rebuilt (paid for by the guy I bought it from after some debate), FMU used with calibration disks ($80), walbro external pump -6AN line ($200), electric fan and thermostat ($100), few other odds and ends ($120).

Another $400 will be spent on dyno time at anderson ford motorsports next tuesday.

Vortech V-1 kits are pretty cheap.

Nitrous is if anything less dangerous when used properly. You can get a reasonable kit, up to 150 hp for under $400. Bottle fills are usually about $40 around here, at 100 hp you can make about 10 passes before you need to refill.

So did your kit come with all of that or did ya have to buy some stuff seperate? I clicked on your Vortech link there and saw its about $2,100.00 For it. What all would i need to buy extra? ( b/c i was looking at that one)

for that kit to run 6PSI, I don't think you need anything else other than a decent high pressure intank pump

As I stated I spent about $3K on everything, most of the parts were used besides the fuel pumps.
