So, I just got her back after the Procharger was installed and she feels great going forward, but when I put her into reverse she seems rough not smooth like she used to be. So, could this just be the added weight as the whole kit probably added about a 100lbs to the front of the car. or maybe i can feel the procharger vibrating. So, anyone else have this issue? I'm a bit concerned as I race this car and don't wanna shred or break something while going down the track.

Not necessarily. This is not normal. Something is wrong. Have you talked to the installer?

So just talked with the installer. We were trying to figure out what is going on and we think that one of the tubes is close to the brake line. So when I put it in to reverse the motor leans to the left and makes contact. I'll he bringing it up to them on Saturday and hope we can fix the issue before igo racing that night.

Does it feel like it's about to stall like the RPMs drop really low when switching from drive to reverse?

I believe after my install my car does the same thing while in reverse it vibrates more than it did w/o the procharger but I have had my procharger since Feb. And all is well and now that I have the one piece motor mounts I feel everything so I've gotten use to it.

We figured it out. The breaklines come from the master break cylinder and run up through the frot of the car. What happens is that the charge tubes run really close to the fender well under the hood. so when the car is put into reverse the motor leans to the left and makes contact with the fender well. Which in turn sends the vibrations down through the break lines.
