RMCR in Colorado Springs started the install yesterday of a Vortech

ARH Long Tubes and 3" exhaust through high flow cats and Magnaflow

My Camaro before.
The Front Bumper off.
Stripping down the engine.
Washer fluid reservoir removed.
Coolant reservoir removed.
Factory Damper off.
New ATI Damper.
Drilled damper and crank for dowel pin to keep from slipping.
ATI Damper and drive pulley installed.
Charge air cooler installed and painted black for that stealth look.
congrats, any idea on when it will hit the rollers
Power steering pump moved and first bracket going on.
Power steering bolted back on.
Next bracket installed.
Charger bolted up and last bracket plate.
Bolts and idlers installed.
Relocated outside air temp sensor.
Washer fluid bottle and bracket.
More duct work.
Duct work, blow off valve, and washer fluid bottle installed.
Charge cooler plumbed, installed hardware cloth (screen) to protect from bugs and debris. Also note the factory intake air duct(upper right of cooler)
has been cut out to improve air flow to filter.
It's going on the dyno as we speak.:popcorn:
i am digging the black intercooler for the sleeper/stealth look :w00t:
Nice work Mike!
540 rwhp on first pull but would only make 4.5 lbs. of boost (6000 ft. altitude sucks).
Putting a smaller pulley on to get the boost where it should be, and try again!!!
Hey, I grew up in Colorado Springs! What part of town is RMCR in?
This install only took about 12 hrs. not counting the tune. Should take less on the next Camaro.
Excellent kit, I'm glad Vortech took their time getting it to market. They got every detail perfect!!
Thanks Brian and the guys at Vortech!!
Intake air duct cut away for more air.
You really have to look to see the charge air cooler behind grille.
A look from wheel well.
Beautiful install, thanks Vortech and RMCR!!
Mike put on the smaller blower pulley, but the belt is now too long, he ordered one. Should be here around
8:30 AM tomorrow, then we'll see what kind of boost it makes. I'll let you all know.
looks good sir
We have been installing Vortechs for over 15 years and this by far is one of there best kits. Cant wait till we get the belt for the smaller pulley and break 600 RWHP on the roller tomorrow.
