Default R-Tech Supercharger, Pro's and Con's

Are any of you fellow OSO members using one or have knowledge of someone who is? I couldn't stop looking at this setup in Miami. What is the story???? Good or Bad????

Chuck, contact Tom ( Tomcat on OSO) directly. He designed and built it. He seems to be a perfectionist so I suspect his product willl reflect that.

Yes thats the one. I have to say it sparked my interest. Do you have any customers here on OSO that they can give me their thoughts from a customers perspective?? Is there a dealer in the Northeast? I would take it to Mindi if necessary but would prefer someone closer. Any Nor-Tech customers???? Thanks for the info.

I will be going on my second year with the rtech. I have a m4 procharger. I first used the procharger intercooler with the dual carb setup. Then changed to efi, 2000cfm throttle body & procharger intercooler. After that I changed to the Rtech with my throttle body. In running a log file from before to after I did not gain a lot of or any more boost but I lost a lot of intake air temp. I do not remember the exact number but I think I lost about 20 degrees on a wot run. I am running wbo2 sensors and the efi system was having to put about 15% more fuel in the engine on a wot run then before.

Would I do it again? Hell yea.
