Sounds like it is bigger than the current Vortech or Paxton "small" range.

Vortech is sort of lacking a next stage over the YSi really, but fitting the same bracketry.

eLeSthree,

That combo is looking great. It will make some power no doubt.

Vortech did develop the V-15 and the V17 but I don't know if came to fruition. Both fit in the YSI bracketry.

There have been a couple of posts about the V15....but that was a long time ago, and they still don't seem to be out there. Vortech really are lagging behind, although even the old YSi is still a fantastic unit.

The did do the XB110 some years ago too, but it disappeared very fast. No idea why they seem to struggle when Procharger has so many good units out there.

I asked for years for an upgrade for the YSi, even just an impeller to no avail, got fed up in the end and switched to turbos. About 2 years later then came up with the YSi-B, but even that hasnt really shone much over the regular YSi

ESS for a much smaller company seem to be stepping up though and making good stuff.

ESS doe have some nice engineering - they orig cam from high end euro car kits. I am surprised that Vortech, or even Procharger, is not using the 11-blade tech from the turbo world. I am sure that would breath some new life into their units.

I doubt 11 blades would be of any advantage. The higher blade counts seem to be more for higher rpm impellers and due to physical limitations, blowers just do not operate at the same rpms turbos will see.
Over 100k would be common for turbos even 70k is very high for a blower.

Maybe it's still why the ysi performs so well despit an old cast unit.

I had even considered the V4XX, but it's massive.
