If you're looking at a centri, did you look at the Procharger? Just seems like a much nicer kit to me. Nothing wrong with the Vortec, the ATI is just a .cleaner looking install. IMHO.

I'd say Vortech is the most conservative path on a stock 6.1 motor. Go to a "top tier" installer and pay for the available drivetrain warranty.

Blower and consevative don't belong in the same sentence. Give it a year and your gonna see a whole lot of blown up motors.
I f you want to make power with your Blower By Kenne Bell or Pro Charger.

If you do not go over 10 or 12 lbs, everyone can say what they want, but time slips will tell it all. They are all close. I do not care how big it is or what anyone claims anymore. I am seeing more and more proof of this every week.

I want to see the fastest 6 to 8lb boost times from all SC's. I do not think there is a bad choice here. There is a certain size needed, and on a stock motor, some are way overkill.

Get what you want, and what you think looks nice. And try bot to just blend in with everyone else. Nothing worse than going somewhere, and having the same thing as the next 5 cars beside you!

I am still waiting to see all of these 12 month old blown up vortech installs that apparently couldn't make any power

Yah, I agree. Well past a year with my Vortech V3si now, with time at Seca and multiple trips to the drags. Mine seems to be quite happy; stock pulleys, ~7 psi, in the 11.9's at 118. It's not that impressive, but that's not why I chose this route... I wanted FI that would be safe on this stock 6.1. Which is what "conservatively" blown means, to me.

A couple of questions.

1) Are there mods to do with the supercharger to make it more "bullet proof"?

2) Is there a parts solution (ie, predator, heads, cams, boring) that can come close to a Supercharger?

If Vortech doesn't make any power, how does one get a Magnum with stock SRT8 suspension and a 392 Motor into the nines?


:thumbsup:

And that is not even the quickest he has gone :bigthumb:

Where are all the HEMI's running 9 Seconds with Prochargers?? :scratchhead:

Not saying Prochargers don't make power, they do..and they do it pretty nicely! And I KNOW there should be Procharged Hemi's in the 9s...just hasn't happened yet.

I just don't understand saying that Vortech doesn't make power lol

You get a Forged Bottom end and you will be close to bulletproof. I say close, cause no matter what you do there is always a chance of blowing something up if a tune is wrong or a part is wrong etc. I don't want to say do this and nothing will ever happen! LOL

You can do a built up 426 and get close to what a Supercharger will do on a stock bottom end, but throw a supercharger on a built 426 or 392 (that is built for boost) and you will blow away what that motor did N/A lol

Its a never ending cycle!

Best Bang for the Buck is a Supercharger, the tricky part about the supercharger is to get the correct suspension setup for traction :)

you should pay more attention to your industry before you go yapping at the mouth, DTP just went 9.7 @ 146 on a 6.1 Superbee full street weight and jack just went 9.8 with a 2.8kb on a 6.1 full street weight

Purperformance has a procharged challenger in the 9s.

LOL Who is yapping their mouth :D

I didn't say that no KB went 9s did I?

And reread what I said...was NOT downing any S/C...just saying I had not seen a Procharged Hemi in the 9s, if DTP got it done GREAT....just had not seen that yet. Its about time :D

All I said was Vortech blowers DO make power, and they have been for years......

Top three F/I setups in say...NMRA...are Procharger, Vortech and Turbo :thumbsup:

I like seeing any F/I Hemi running fast and I am not downing on any of them...just wanted to prove a point that a Vortech CAN go 9s and CAN make power :bigthumb:

Good run :bigthumb:, and I stand corrected on that fact!

Thanks! I wasn't hating on Procharger, just had yet to see it done is all :)

But that doesn't negate that fact that a Vortech can make power which was the point of my post LOL

There is a supercharger for everyone, just depends on what you want to do with the car! There is not a one cure all supercharger for everyone. Its about finding what is right for the customer :thumbsup:

you right about that mike there is one for every car, but not all of them will go real fast.
GSO will also show us how fast vortec goes if he ever gets in the garage and works on it.

Vortech in 15 years has yet to field a 7 second car in NMRA Super Street Outlaw. I tested Superchargers for them and Vortech spent 50K in RnD trying. Prochargers rule hands down!
