Vortech Supercharger


Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm not familiar with that particular kit, but I am with Turbo and supercharger kits in general. Both types of kits increase torque and horsepower by pressureizing the intake tract forcing more air/fuel mixture into the cylinder than can be drawn in under normal unaided conditions. This essentially dramatically increases the compression ratio and stress loads on most all internal parts. The cylinder head, liners or walls, connecting rods, crankshaft, all related bearings, valves and other parts are loaded well beyond their original designed parameters.

Factory boosted motors are usually lower compression initially and built to deal with these extreme conditions and are built much more robust than a simular naturally aspirated one. In my opinion you may enjoy the excess power but you would be much better off buying the factory Turbo model, or if cost is no object, buy a turbo motor and fit the surpercharger as the lower end and related parts will handle the additional loads.

Hi,

Was wondering if anyone has installed and used the Vortech Supercharger by VF Engineering on their cars? Any reviews would be appreciated.....is it worth spending $10,000?

Thanks,

Samvit

Haven't heard nothing about VF and maybe they are good but, I would go with someone who's been S/C Porsche for a long time and is trusted in the Porsche community. For about the same price you can have these guys install a kit in your car. I plan on have my car S/C by these guys when warranty runs out.
