Do you really think they are going to bolt a supercharger on your car, put 750 miles on it and not hammer it? How can they dial in the performance of a supercharger without putting load on your car?

Basically, the pitch is that I'm supposed to sign a waiver for my non-street legal brand new supercharged Camaro after having to pay for someone else's R&D while a company beats on my car. That's a terrible sales pitch. Try again.

besides paying for the whole system they put on it you will have to probably replace the tires and probably the brake pads. You know they wont just keep it on the dyno they will be burning around the streets in it.

LOL I just reread this post.... REALLY?


All i can picture in my head as your handing them the keys to your new camaro is the scene from Ferris Bueller's day off when they "valet" park his friend's dad's Ferrari.



Watch between 6 minutes and around 7 minutes 30 seconds and replace that ferrari with your Camaro. No Thanks!

If your this desperate to get that couple grand towards a supercharger why not just sell the camaro above msrp because you know somebody will buy it so they can have it now then wait for another one and use your markup towards a supercharger

Vortech Superchargers

I found this while searching for a possible supercharger add on.

Sorry if it's a repost.

Hello everyone,

My name is Frank and I work for Vortech Engineering. I don't know why so many of you think that we're going to "beat on" or "thrash" on your Camaro. I assure you that's not the case with any of the cars we use for R&D. We've been around since 1990 and have an outstanding reputation in the industry. Your car will be in good hands. We believe the proper way to tune a car is to do it through the entire power band. The car will see redline. We have developed a tune for the Pontiac G8 GT and we believe the Camaro V8 computers are pretty much the same. Like all our tunes it’s very safe. The only person authorized to drive the car is the Engineer that is working on it. Joy rides are strictly prohibited.

Unfortunately we do not have an emissions legal kit for a 2010 Camaro yet. We will be working on getting approval as soon as possible. It is a process that takes some time so please be patient. For those of you worried about your factory warranty we do offer an optional 3 year/36,000 mile powertrain warranty.

So after reading through this thread we’ve decided to sweeten the deal. The first two (2) 2010 Camaro V8s to show up at our door will get a FREE system and FREE install. You will be responsible for getting the car to and from us. We will not be providing a rental car while your car is here.

Who wants to be the first two lucky 500+HP 2010 Camaro owners??

Give me a call for more info 805-247-0226 EXT. 225.

-Frank

What's 1-4 months of $30-a-day rental fees? Cause that's how much it would cost to get this "free" system installed on your car. It's still cheaper then a brand new system and a good deal, but definitely not free.

I'm going to guess this deal is aimed towards the people who aren't buying the Camaro as their only car. If I had one already, even though I'm not a fan of FI, especially superchargers, I'm pretty sure I'd be on my way to their shop right now.

You have to respect them for coming on here, seeing the criticism, and stepping up to say "Hey, we see your point, so now it's free." Says quite a bit about them I think. Kudos, Vortech!

How about adding in the warranty?

Hi,

That's why I didn't say this deal will cost you nothing out of pocket. I said the kit is FREE and the install is FREE. If your Camaro is your only car then you will have to spend some money to rent a car. If you're fortunate enough to have a spare car...lets say a 2004 Accord V6, then it would cost you almost nothing.
Lets say the kit retails for $6,400 (price is TBD), the install is going to cost you at least another $1,000.00. The savings is worth paying for a rental car to most people. Plus, it is not guaranteed that we will need the car for 4 months. That's worst case scenario. Even with a free kit and free install we know this deal isn't for everyone.

-Frank
