Paradox by Design is nearing completion on our supercharger kits for HMMWVs. We are developing this in conjunction with the supercharger manufacturer in order to balance the performance needs and maintain absolute reliability all the while. These are modern positive displacement superchargers with internal Air/Coolant intercooling. We are testing with several boost levels from 9PSI to 15PSI and several pump tunes. To date we have made as high as 300HP with room to grow.

The advantage of these kits is that they are true bolt-on kits that reduce the under hood clutter needed to fit a turbocharger. No custom exhaust systems and the added under hood temperatures associated with them and the turbo. No modification of the oil system, pans, etc.. We are looking at one day installation times as our goal.

Pricing is not yet fixed but this will be both an economical and efficient way to gain significant HP and TQ for your rig. Like our cooling upgrade kits we of course use advanced 3D modeling, Heavy HAAS 5 axis CNC machining, and strong Billet aluminum materials. Here are a couple of sneak peak pics and models...

Really like the supercharger better than the turbo and I’m not saying one is better than the other it’s just better for me. I would imagine that you can piece this together with off the shelf parts as it’s been used in marine applications forever. I believe there is value in a kit that saves time and solves problems. That being said it has to be expensive because supercharger is not cheap by itself. I’m excited to see what your price points looks like. I really want your head cooling kit and do you offer any forum discounts? I’m glad that someone is still working to develop stuff for this platform.

From time to time we do offer Steel Soldiers only discounts. Right now we are working to keep prices from going up despite raw materials being 30%-50% higher and harder to come by. I don't see any discounts anytime soon with the current climate.

Can we chat about one fitting on your cooling kit that drives me nuts? My ocd is keeping me from pulling the trigger.

You are not wrong. We make many of the parts in our kits but not all of them. Since the 'T' is only used in the the HMMWV kit and none of the others it was decided not to invest in a one off piece and use existing military grade fittings. This of course means there are some limitations on the configuration.

I understand cost issues for sure. It would really help clean up the angles. I have been looking for that fitting to replace the T but I can’t find one and I thought they made a fitting for everything. I appreciate your time and I’m still getting one.

Trust me, we looked long and hard. The only better option than what we use was a custom fitting which just tooling up for was cost prohibitive in the volume we sell.

How is this coming? Do you have a target date for availability?
