Thank you for the very fast and detailed reply. It helps a guy like me who is thinking hard on getting a truck with one of your superchargers installed.
Warranty is good to have and it is also good to know that both warranties would cover anything, for whatever period of time they would be good for, just in case.
It is quite surprising to me that the actual Chevy or GMC dealers would install something like this but, on the flip side, what it says to me is that they trust the unit. $1,300 is not a bad price and one that I would consider paying as I'm not sure I'd want to do it myself although, when I think about it, a brand new motor along with a brand new supercharger along with tried and true instructions, I'm sure I could do it and am thinking about it now over the Duramax.
4.3 mpg is 4.3 mpg and if CARB has certified it, I would take that as an increase in 4.3 mpg over both city and highway using the methods that they use to determine the mpg.
Just thinking out loud here: If the Duramax is a $4,000+ upgrade, and with the supercharger kit $6,900, that would be $2,000 more, plus install if I wanted it done by someone other than myself, hmmmmmm, more HP and TQ? Hmmmmmmmmm . . .
Sure thing, here to help... I actually feel a little bad that I'm underselling the kit. I can only say so much on a public forum. If anyone is even considering the kit, you owe it to yourself to call us and talk about it. I want you to have all the information you can have.
We have a number of dealers doing installs for their inventory and for customers. Feedback has been really positive there. We've also picked up trucks from dealers, had guys trailer their trucks in, drive their trucks in... We've even had mechanics bring their personal trucks in. It's just a nice touch to have it installed by the designers (for $1200, I typed that wrong earlier). That said, the kit was designed for DIY installation. The instructions are very thorough and we're here to help if there's any confusion. No crazy tools required, no hacking up your truck... It just takes a little longer.
For someone considering diesel, another blower, another truck... I just wish you could drive one. I honestly can't imagine driving our Colo without it. I don't care if it's diesel, a vortech unit, whatever. The throttle response makes
the truck and you can't get it with anything less.
By the way, for you adventurous guys, we do offer more... Let's call it "stage 2" 400rwhp, "stage 3" 600rwhp...
