wonder what that does to your mpg lol. awesome to finally see aftermarket coming in when my vette is nearly here! does the 4 cylinder mode have to be deactivated entirely with a supercharger?

Not a huge fan of the blow through vortech designs, never have been. The Edelbrock kit being worked on has much more appeal to me.

Wonder what this equates to in 0-60, 1/4 mile, and top speed time/MPH increases.

Dynos higher then the average ZR1..
0-60 probably won't change much cause traction isn't increased but 10.8 @ 133mph possible stock tire

I made 629wHP with same size vortech & just headers on LS3..
LT1 starts with 30 more HP :-D

Just Vortech makes alot more HP per PSI
There are reasons no manufacturer has gone with a blow through design or a centrifugal SC. While you can't deny the immediate results the long term reliability, noise and other issues make the intake integral units like what the factory uses more desirable to me and the manufacturers. Not intended to slam anyone who has or wants a Vortech, just my opinion, YMMV :)

Well I had one for 80k miles of hard abuse. But reason they use roots is ease of installation & no outside intercooler no oil to worry Bout. They don't last longer.
But roots has alot of flaws. Belts use factory pulleys which are skinny. They slip & break & u lose all ur factory accessories stuff on that belt like power steering & maybe alternator. Vortech has its own separate belt.
Roots sit on top of hot engine with their intercooler. they get heat soaked & u lose alot of power after running for A lil bit.
There are always pros & con..
I have a vortech on one car & a Whipple on another.. I would do vortech or whipple.. but prob not the roots. All the one available are small & limited on power

The warranty is also more appealing :D

This thread has a lot of points to hit on and I've owned the edelbrock blower(positive displacement) and a procharger(centri) on my mustangs and I like the centri for many reasons over a PD and it's not due to quality. I loved the edelbrock but it gets heat soaked too easily and you can't upgrade to a bigger blower. Plus, the torque is too much on the low end on the PD and it's better managed on a centri.

As for the pfadt supercharger, I'm not happy with the way they market or represent their blower. FYI, 650 flywheel hp isn't very good considering it's long tubes and blower.
