My Car is getting SCREWED by Techco!

Hey guys,
The title is not like what it sounds lol. My car is back at Techco Superchargers for the R&D. The process is underway and soon it will be available. They just finished the corvette LS3 and now going to my Camaro. They are great systems and very cool guys. Now just cant wait now till its done!

What the supercharger is all about:

The Revolutionary design allows air to move through the supercharger quickly and efficiently, without significant heat buildup, and at the highest resulting airflow volume at low boost output. The performance result is maximized horsepower and torque output.

Key Features of The TECHCO Reverse-Revolution Twin Screw Supercharger™.

* Reverse-Revolution Twin Screw Compressor with Asymmetric Multi-Lobe Screws
* 3.0L / 180 cu. in. Displacement
* Font Induction with Integrated Bypass
* 10 Inch Long Intake Runners
* Dual Stage Intercooler System with Single-Pass Coolant Flow through the A-Frame (2) Intercoolers, Large Capacity Heat Exchanger, High Volume Intercooler Pump and Recovery Tank
* Open Element Cold Air Kit with High-Flow Air Filter, CNC Venturi and High Flow Inlet Tube
* Extruded Aluminum fuel Rails with upgraded fuel injectors where applicable
* Separate 8-Rib FEAD (Front End Accessory Drive) with Dampener
* Ultra-Light Weight Aluminum Construction
* Flash Programmer



-My car had some computer problems before, but finally worked it out. (GM replaced the ECM because it was faulty.) -

-Here is a link to there site: http://www.techcointl.com/default.asp

Here is some pics of me dropping it off and doing some Baseline Dynos. (Dyno power was 380rwhp and 385 torque on a Dynojet) Pretty impressive numbers!

What the system looks like on a challenger

Looks a lot like the edelbrock e-force that's made for the mustang.

Great design, should put down some great numbers at low psi. Long runners help power output...

Nice!

My only complaint is the name Techco to me it sounds like a name for an R/C car or something.

Its an inside thing because their shirts say, "i got screwed by techco." Because there system is a reverse twin SCREW system. So hence the screwed part lol

I'm glad someone stepped up and chose the BEST forced induction option available for the Camaro.

The instant torque and COLD INTAKE TEMPS from a true TWIN SCREW supercharger blows the all the other Camaro forced induction systems away.

If you check their site, Edelbrock is using a TVS 2300 roots blower at it's core.

The Techco is a 3.0Liter TWIN SCREW.

It looks like they're seeking CARB-compliance for at least a kit or two; is there any word on doing the same for Camaro? If so, this could be another cool SC kit to add to the list.

Yea, they are going to get the 50 state carb legal certification for the Camaro.

Good to know. You can't have too many choices.
