Default Vortech Superchargers

There was a listing in the classified section not to long ago selling multiple superchargers, including a Vortech...anyone know if they are still available...or is anyone selling a Vortech big enough for a 540?

thanks

I have a vortech kit that would be ideal for a 540" engine. I assume EFI.

We have a few customers using our system on 540s with Holley EFI. This photo shows the Rtech supercooler with a Procharger M-3 blower, but we sell the complete system with a Vortech V-4 supercharger. How much HP are you after?

I am only looking for around 750 hp..the 540 is rebuilt with low compression and will have the parts off of a 525 efi on top....why do most engine builders hate the Procharger setup? Is the V-4 supercharger the recommended supercharger for 750 hp?

thanks

Can someone explain the difference between the Vortech and Procharger?

I have a set Beautiful set of Merc 500 efI's with aluminum heads with Vortechs. They are right around 760 hp each. I was going to put these in my Motion but due some current issues I have to put off a few projects and concentrate on one. I will give someone a great deal. An extra 40K went into these 500 EFI's. PM me if you have any interest or need more info.

If you are using the 525EFI intake manifold then we could offer you this system, dyno-tested by Arizona Speed and Marine @ 875 HP. We have spent a lot of time and money on this system and we know what injectors/fuel system and computer program is needed.

On a 540 with better heads and cam upgrades you could make more HP, the V-4 blower is good anywhere form 600-1000 HP. Boost can be turned down but don't forget that you can get away with more HP using a centrifugal blower since they don't make full boost until high RPM.

When I design these systems I base the location of components on the Vortech compressor and blower drive. In my opinion they are better but saying so is a good way to start a religious war (like a Ford vs. Chevy thing).

If you want more details give me a call.
