Didn't lysholm borrow technology from whipple...? I thought I read somewhere that lysholm is not using the eaton rotors. Can anyone expand on that?

Eaton is the company that manufactures the TVS rotors. Magnuson, Edelbrock, Gen Motors, Ford, you name it use the Eaton TVS rotor group. It's a "Roots" blower. The twinscrew blowers made by Lysolm, Whipple, Kenne Bell are a totally different animal. The TVS blowers compress air downstream of the blower. The twinscrews compress the air between the rotors. Different ways of doing the same thing.

No whipple actually borrowed from Lysholm from what I understand and they actually supplied the internals for a point in time.

I've had a Lysholm 2.3 blower on my 2010 SS since spring of 2012 and I've had absolutely no problems with it. It has made 500 dependable, daily driven rwhp since it was installed. I recently had a shop install a boost a pump and 850FID injectors for me and pushed me out to 553 rwhp on 9lbs of boost. It's an awesome blower and I like that it's different from what most people get. The only bummer about it is if you want to put a smaller pulley on it, I haven't been able to source any aftermarket ones. I've seen a few guys get smaller pulleys custom made from machine shops but that is it.

That would be Whipple up unitl 04.

Does anyone know a place that stocked up on parts for them? A buddy is looking for the tensioner bracket/plate. I contacted Vortech/Lysholm. They have a few in stock but aren't willing to sell. Thanks for any help.

You guys contacted Vortech and they said they weren't going to sell them?? Frank at Vortech has been great to me, I never heard of a part they weren't selling. That sucks, but that plate is pretty unique I guess, and aftermarket tensioners won't work with a lysholm Blower. I wonder how hard it would be to get one machined?

I spoke with Ernie yesterday he said they had the plate in stock and a few tensioner kits. Today I called to order and the sales person said negative on selling. They're not offering the kits either.

A buddy purchased the blower but was missing that tensioner plate. I guess the previous owner was using it on a Ctsv. That's where we're trying to track it down. If you or anyone can help I would appreciate it.

Here's what amused me. They said they needed a sample of the design if they ever decide to bring the kit back. But they have a few sets in stock and the plate so why can't they sell one and keep one or a few in stock lol.
