I have heard from a few people on the forum with shops and will look them up and go for vistis during the winter, I really want to make the right choice on the shop for the installation.

I don't care how good the system is if someone puts it in wrong or doesn't tune/set-up properly it won't do me any good and well probably just cost me more money in the end.

Thanks for the input.
check out my photo album top pic is my 99 Tahoe and the other is my 90 IROCZ. I also buit a 502 which Iam supercharging also for the 69 SS Camaro.

I live in DC and only see one Vortech Top Tier Installer, JPC Racing in MD. Are you familiar with their work? Are there other shops in the DMV area that Vortech has a relationship with and can vouch for?

What about Race Proven Motorsports in DE. I have heard good things about this shop but don't know if they are affiliated with Vortech and could offer and back the 3/36 warranty available.

What is the cost for the 3/36 warranty? What is the warranty that comes with the S/C system as is?

JPC is a fantastic shop. Justin Burchham, the owner, is very meticulous and pays great attention to detail. This is reflected in not only his numerous personal NMRA event wins, but in the enormous amount of customer's wins and championships as well. His knowledge of what works and what doesn't has been sharpened by him pretty much trying everything and TESTING everything. Also, Vortech's screening process is pretty thorough. Not everyone can become an Authorized Top Tier Installer. A positive long standing sales history, a track record of customer satisfaction, an in-depth knowledge of the product line, and strict review of the shop by Vortech are just some of the requirements to becoming a "Vortech Top Tier Installer". You can rest assured, if a shop has this designation, your Vortech installation is in good hands.

Check out his site.

We're shipping kits now Steve...how many do you want? You'll want to get in line soon though, we're building them as fast as we can, but we've already got DOZENS of these systems on order! People are really liking what they see so far.

There is a Dealer Locator on our website - just click HERE and punch in your zip code.



By law, we are required to make this statement on every system we manufacture until the California Air Resources Board attaches an E.O. number to it. We submit every single street supercharger system we manufacture for C.A.R.B. certification, and the Gen. 5 Camaro is no exception to that.
I'm torn between the Vortech and the Magnacharger for just this reason. Now if you are saying that the boost actually occurs much earlier than that would change the picture and I wouldg o with the Vortech as I can get that much cheaper.

Is there anyone else on the forum that can attest to the fact that the Vortech boost actually happens before 400rpm's regularly as mentioned above? If so than I think this may make for a better city ride. WHat do you guys think?

Thanks JP

JP, did you mean 4000 RPMs? If so, yes, I can attest to that.

Thanks for the info and I did mean 4000rpm's. I'm still leaning towards the Maggie through Livernois at the moment. I think they have the best bang for the buck.

Thanks

Check out Rick Bottom's V-7 YSi-Trim powered SEMA-bound Camaro in these videos! Rick and Modern Muscle put some of their custom touches on this kit (orange blower, bracket, tensioner, and ducting), so I don't want anyone asking if the kit comes with an orange supercharger, OK?

I guess I deserve that. We currently offer Satin and Polished finishes only guys. Any custom colors, you'll have to make friends with a powdercoater, or do it yourself.

We can do custom powder coating too kits before they ship. Here are a few that we have done. We can add any graphic, logos, flames, ect. Prices range from a additional 350.00 to 600.00 to any kit. Here are a few Vettes we have done.

Camaro SS LS3--631 RWHP

This kit is awesome, and it makes super power.
On my LS3 it made 631 RWHP @ 7.5 psi with ARH headers,
high flow cats, 3" exhaust and Magnaflow mufflers.
It made a 235 increase in peak hp, that's a 60% increase.
It made a 245 hp increase at 6200 rpm, that's 64%.
