Accessible Technologies, Inc., manufacturer of ProCharger supercharger systems, is proud to introduce the industry’s first programmable ratio supercharger, the i-1® ProCharger. Featuring an intelligent control system and optional touch screen display, drivers can switch between 3 factory supplied performance modes, as well as a custom mode. The patented programmable i-1® design produces immediate response, even at low engine rpm, without any turbo lag or power falloff at higher engine rpm. Check out this new product in action and see the innovative internal design via 3D animation at http://youtu.be/pPrL6ebUrDU.

This latest addition to the product line delivers the many benefits of the current ProCharger offering, while adding programmable boost and ****pit control as additional features. Designed and manufactured in the USA, i-1® ProChargers feature exclusive billet impellers and rugged gear cases. Programmable boost is delivered by a highly durable variable ratio transmission design, with a rugged dry hybrid drive. ProCharger i-1® supercharger systems will begin shipping in early 2013 for a variety of late model vehicles, including 2010-13 Camaro SS, 2011-13 5.0L Mustang GT, 2008-13 LS3 C6 Corvette, HEMI 6.1L and 5.7L Challenger/Charger/300, Ford 6.2/5.4 F-150 and GM 6.2/6.0/5.3 Truck/SUV applications.

ProCharger, the world’s leading forced induction brand for nearly 20 years, is known for an unmatched record of street/strip innovation and racing championships, as well as a worldwide network of installing dealers.

cool

wonder how much more room that tranny on there is going to take up in the engine compartment and how much for stuff will have to be moved around.. none the less will be interesting to see how it works out

That thing has a snowmobile clutch on it! I like it. This is like variable geometry for turbos. Low rpm, high boost.

Very cool idea, but I dont see how it could fit our cars without some serious mods, like cutting some material out of the way.

An improved high tech version of the old McCulloch variable ratio supercharger as used on Kaisers, Fords, Studebakers and others. The McCulloch became the Paxton of today.

I've been wondering if they could make something like this. This looks really good! You get the benefit of high boost levels at low RPM levels, which is something that the positive displacement units provide, but with the efficiency and heat characteristics of a centrifugal unit. Looking forward to hearing from those who install these on their cars! I better start saving!

Moving forward with technology is awsome. I feel however this is more moving parts that are not necessary.
