The Vortech V3 unit is a self contained unit with its own oil supply. Very easily maintained. I have had this unit before and the reliability is fantastic.

No, the Vortech V3 unit is self contained, you change its oil on a schedule like your motor. Just Do It !!!!

As everyone has said it is the V3 Vortech unit so that is self-contained oiling..

Oh and if anyone has any fears of self-contained oiling do not. I've run multiple cars into the 9's with self-contained oiling at 14-15psi on the V8's. Once you start tackling more than that, going with the oil-fed units are the way to go because of the HD bearings.

So no need for these to be oiled and it is a lot simpler install for the DIY'r without having to run oil lines or tap the pan for the return.

As soon as anybody installs this unit, you might want to go and buy some the oil that is recommended. I bought four bottles, recommended synthetic oil as well as "amount" that goes in.

Powersteering resovoir gets reloacted, no biggie, MAF wiring gets extended, a littl solder and heatshrink, good to go and the tuning is plug and play via IPF module. Those are all easy.

The MAF is an easy change, just patching in a section of wire. No magic, just make sure you connect the same colors. It's amazing how many people rush this and mess up.
The tune is all plug and play with a computer. If you can attach a USB stick to your computer you are good to go.
The power steering is a little time consuming but it's only because you need to drain (just the tank) fluid. Replace the hose, put back in the fluid, turn the wheel a few times to get the air out, and your done.

The wires do get extended up to 14 inches, because the air filter gets located to another zipcode.

Ive decided I'm going to catch up on credit card bills instead, as much as I want this supercharger I don't need it ans I don't think I feel like taking8 to 10 hours to install a mod

The install is half the fun, you really get to know your car and how it works. It is so much more fun to drive with the SC , and faster than a SS too....
