INTRODUCTION
Congratulations on purchasing your
ProCharger® Dodge Charger 2006-2007 Stage
II Intercooled System. Read this entire manual
before you attempt to install your ProCharger
kit. It is imperative that you follow all of the
instructions in the order they appear in this
installation guide. If you have any questions
regarding any aspect of this installation, call us
at (913) 338-3086.
For best results, we recommend reviewing
the installation instructions beforehand, and
following the installation instructions closely
and in sequence. A detailed packing list has
been provided (stapled to your invoice) to
assist you in identifying the components of
your ProCharger system.
Warning: Read and understand all
safety precautions in this manual
before installation. Failure to comply
with instructions in this manual could
result in personal injury, property
damage, and/or voiding your warranty.
Required Tools and Supplies
• 3/8” Socket Set (standard & metric)
• 1/2” Socket Set (standard & metric)
• 1/2” Breaker Bar
• Open End Wrench Set (standard & metric)
• 3/8” Hex Bit Set (allen head)
• Flat Screwdrivers
• Phillips Screwdrivers
• Plier Set
• 3-Jaw Gear Puller

Introduction
Thank you and congratulations on the purchase of your ProCharger centrifugal supercharger system, and
welcome to the world of intercooled supercharging. You are now the owner of the most powerful, reliable,
and technologically advanced supercharger system available! With your new intercooled supercharger
system installed, you will experience horsepower gains in excess of 50% over stock!
If you are performing the installation of this system and this is your first supercharger installation, you
will likely benefit from reading the entire installation instructions prior to proceeding, and then reviewing
each section as you go. If you are familiar with supercharging, remember that intercooled supercharging is
different from non-intercooled supercharging, and the same rules do not necessarily apply. This is primarily
due to the unparalleled airflow and boost generated by the ProCharger, and the substantially cooler intake
temperatures that result from intercooling this boost.
Once your system is installed and dialed in, you will experience a performance gain that is much greater
than that delivered by non-intercooled supercharger systems. The utilization of intercooling technology
allows power gains for multiple reasons, primarily the following three:
1) Increased charge air density (lb/cubic ft) over non-intercooled applications. Cooler air is more dense, and
as such may be more easily delivered to the cylinders.
2) Decreased charge air temperature allows total spark advance closer to that which is ideal for peak power
production when compared to non-intercooled installations at similar boost levels.
3) The use of an intercooler allows higher peak boost levels for a given fuel (e.g.: pump gas). This means
charge air densities double that of atmospheric may be utilized on some pump gas applications,
resulting in power output nearly double that obtained when operating naturally aspirated.

fan, rotate the passenger side fan motor
so the plug is on the opposite side, this
provides additional belt clearance. Also,
some clearancing of the drivers side
fan shroud might be required for belt
clearance. This can be accomplished by
sanding or grinding the fan shroud as
needed.

Operation and Maintenance
OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE
Cold Starting
Belt Replacement
Never race your engine and ProCharger
supercharger when your engine is cold. Allow
the water temperature to climb into operating
range for several minutes before driving above
2,500 rpm, to ensure adequate oil lubrication.
The serpentine belt, which turns your ProCharger
supercharger, will stretch after initial run-in, and
should be retightened after the first hundred
miles. Tighten the belt sufficiently to avoid
slippage, but do not overtighten. Overtightening
the belt could cause damage to the ProCharger
supercharger’s precision bearings. When
reinstalling the belt, use the belt routing diagram
in this manual. If you reuse a thrown belt and
find that it needs frequent re-tightening, the
belt is damaged and should be replaced. Gates
Micro-V belts can be bought from ATI or from
your local parts store.
Fuel Quality
With a properly installed intercooled ProCharger
supercharger system, detonation should not
occur. For the best performance and reliability,
use premium grade fuel (91 octane or higher).
Listen for signs of detonation after refueling,
and after replacement or modification of any
fuel system component(s). If detonation occurs,
reduce the throttle and locate the source.
Ignition System Maintenance
If your spark plugs are more than a year old or
have more than 10,000 miles logged, you should
consider changing them before driving your
vehicle under load. Spark plug wires should be
changed if visibly damaged or when resistance
exceeds factory specifications.
ProCharger Oil Change Intervals
The first oil change should be performed at 500
miles and at 6,000 mile intervals thereafter. Clean
drain plug after every oil change. Drain oil by
removing the drain plug. Clean off drain plug
before reinstalling.
Air Filter Maintenance
Your air filters should be cleaned periodically,
potentially as often as every 10,000 miles
or 6 months, even though a service interval
of 50,000 - 100,000 miles is quoted by the
manufacturer under normal driving conditions.
A clogged air filter will result in decreased boost
levels and vehicle performance. Be sure to reoil the cleaned filter before re-installing. Always
operate your vehicle with an air filter, failure to
do so may result in damage to your ProCharger
supercharger and personal injury!
Dodge Charger 2006-2008 System Installation Guide
41
Operation and Maintenance
ProCharger Oil Level
General
The ProCharger supercharger’s oil level must
be checked periodically to ensure the proper
lubrication. The dipstick can be loosened
using a flat blade screwdriver or a coin. When
installed, the oil level should remain between the
minimum (MIN) and maximum (MAX) indicators
at all times.
When removing the warning tag from the
dipstick, be sure to retain the nylon washer. A
spare nylon washer and o-ring is included. Use
only the ATI supplied nylon washer and o-ring
when servicing the oil dipstick and drain plug. A
discoloration of the oil and residue on the drain
plug may occur during the initial oil changes.
This is normal and will gradually decrease.
For the proper positioning of the ProCharger
supercharger, the serial tag should be pointing
upwards. Installing the ProCharger supercharger
in another position will cause inadequate
oiling and supercharger failure. If you have
any questions about the maintenance of your
supercharger, contact ATI.
Warning: Filling the ProCharger higher
than the maximum level on the dipstick
can lead to bearing and seal damage.
The supercharger is a sealed unit and
should not normally require the addition
of oil between service intervals. If
excessive usage is noted, the unit should
be sent to ATI for inspection and repair.
The dipstick fitting should be firmly
tightened after changing or checking the
oil level.
