I don't actually know any numbers to substantiate my opinion, so if i'm wrong here, let me know

These supercharegers do not have any issues with heat. We are using the 2300 because the market demanded it, and it leaves more room for the folks that are going to run the larger displacement engines in the future.

Not just bigger displacement but DIG V8's in the future as well I'm guessing. Future proofing FTW!

Working on the intercooler heat exchanger and some misc supporting parts. I expect this to be running late today or in the morning.

Please compare and contrast your cooling system with GM's TVS 2300 cooling system.


Are you going to include a 11 rib pulley like GM does on their TVS 2300?

It has been discussed, however we would need to see a HUGE response to make it happen.

That's good to hear. Personally, I think the response would be respectable. If it performs well enough in terms of power vs. efficiency, I don't doubt GM might come looking for a factory version like Audi's supercharged 6. Stranger things have happened...
