For those who had a procharger and then went to turbos, what made you change things up? What were the differences in power and drivability between the two setups?

I had the F1, got rid of it because of the following things.

- No control over the boost like a turbo ( although we were going to go with a custom wastegate to give it some control )
- The cog Drive is a pain in the ass
- If you peddle the truck under power the cog belt would blow to pieces, so if you lose traction peddle it , your out a belt and now you have damage under the hood from that belt tearing up.

i would not have listed it if it was not... That is with the COG drive, not the vdrive on the smaller blowers

I had belt issues on 8 rib and 12 rib serpentine belts... the procharger kit simply needs more idler pulleys on the bottom side of the belt, like Charlie added to his kit... Turbo is alot less obnoxious at idle and cruising speeds, with simple boost control as well as better fuel mileage for me.. down side is that you have to build a custom kit or have one made, which is the reason you dont see many turbo vipers
