the only thing I dont care to much for is it is not as clean looking as the eaton.....I wish we could get some real good dyno's #'s from both as a comparisonmistermike said:I just sent off an email to Vortech yesterday inquiring about price and delivery estimates, along with a few tech questions, such as whether it's going to replace the injectors / fuel pump per Fbod, or "push" the existing fuel system per Vette. Right now, I'm leaning toward the Vortech, because I believe it will run cooler than the Eaton, and doesn't substitute the intake manifold. Their aftercooler is very efficient, and centrifugals are inherently more efficient than a Roots. Also, the centrifugal won't overpower the drivetrain at launch, but makes stoopid power at high RPM, where the LS1 seems to thrive.
would simply having a hood scoop help?RMRGTO said:Your right mistermike, that is the biggest problem with the Eaton style charger. They run very warm and there is no way to cool the air. Its convenience and style vs performance.
The wheels are custom made 18x8F & 18x9R RacingHart CP-F Tuned. RMR hopes to have them available in a couple of months.
but is there a lag on the vortech?RMRGTO said:I'm sure it would but the unit is still connected to the engine getting heat soaked. Also, I believe the way the units creates boost with the dual impellers has a lot of friction causing a lot of heat. The Vortec style units have less friction equaling less heat transfer.
I don't know how the Vortech feels on an LS1 but I had one on my 93GT Stang with emmissions legal cam and heads and put down 490rwhp at 11# boost with zero lag and it would continue to pull hard to the rev limiter. Can't wait to see how it is on the goat.Dbluegoat said:but is there a lag on the vortech?
