RX Roots Supercharger...



Anyone know if this is a myth and legend like the twin turbo kit that mounted in the engine compartment?

Is it still in development or does it cease to exist?

Thread on the top mount. Nothing of recent for updates. Pretty sure its not a myth. Seems lime everything on the LLT takes forever.

It's real (as far as I know) Tracy said it was at least a couple months out. However one thing that seems strange is how incredibly dusty that engine bay is

I like the easy install and fairly consistant tuning of the ipf side mount but........this top mount would be wicked cool in my book. I would love something like this someday but with more tuning options.

Also more low end torque and its easier to install and not to mention promised gains of 400+ whp, where is ipf is somewhere between 380-405 whp with full bolt ons...

The dust was from body work at the body shop where this was test fit for the picture. No myths here ever.....no other shop has done mopre with the GM 3.6l DI engines than RX to date. We are set back at least 60 more days on a casting/fitment issue, but still in the works for sure.

Doing single and twin turbos all over the world with excelletn results, but engine bay version no one has offered their car up to finish that, but we will do them as soon as someone wants. Just hate the heat in the engine compartment form them, but for those that want the look, can do a great look though for the one that wants it!

Most may not know but RX isn't as big as most shops. All projects and R&D are out of pocket. And without a large budget or backers like most of the big guys have . Things move slower!! I have been a backer for projects before and it's still a slow process getting things to the public. And trust me I've had projects take years before I seen a full workable product.

If I understood correctly,know one has a single or twin turbo mounted in eng. bay by RX? Also anxious to see top mount sc and no doubt RX can do it.

We hope app 60 days, but delays have put it back where I assumed we would have it already.....but like anything else new...


No on the engine bay mount, but someone steps up we will do it as well.

The LFX single turbo were finishing now we are going to try and build a jig for the piping so we can offer it as a kit.

Tracy and I had talked a bit about mounting the turbo under the hood. But with the amount of heat its producing and no ventilation on a stock hood, it would have been stupid.

That's why there are aftermarket hoods? Having turbos on the bottom of the car can be a terrible idea unless its strictly a track car. Snow, rock, water and debris can really mess up an under mount turbos.

I have a set of hex vents if you need some they work excellent to get the heat out also some aftermarket hoods will do the trick too.
