Vortech for 2012 GT

I am in the market for a supercharger on a budget for my 2012 GT. I see that Vortech seems to be the least expensive. Everything I read about it looks good. If someone has one installed on a 2011 or newer I would like to hear your thoughts (pros and cons).

Also I am in so cal and would appreciate any feedback and or suggestions of places to have it installed.

Email Bob Kurgan. He doesn't advertise his prices, but they are REAL hard to beat.

bob@kurganmotorsports.com

As far as install, I am not versed in socal shops.

Get a T trim if you do it. There is a local 5.0 with one and it moves out!

I would agree. The V3 runs out of steam quickly. One of my customers has a V3 on his vette and he has the highest, efficient, pulley ratio and he is making 630RWHP on a built bottom end in his Vette. I think it's like 12 PSI.

Is there a part number that you can provide because I only see 4FQ218-024L (I want black if possible) for the 2012?

I'm not seeing the part number for the black T-Trim. I Would just email Bob and ask him about it. If you don't want to go through Bob, I can email him and get the info for you anyway.

I see the satin and polished version but I don't see the part number for the black version.

I know the V1 and V3 have CARB EO cert's but I'm not sure about the T-Trim.

I was told that if I dont have a built motor I would stick with the Si trim. I dont think I will build the motor in the future either. I just want my dd to beat most things on the road (the never ending hp battle).

I am on a very tight budget and I see the vortech for less expensive and comes in black. Please by all means I am open for suggestions. If you have some input I would like to hear it.

I run the paxton with stock pulley, 8.5 psi and dd it. Bought from beefcake tuned by lund and installed by me in a one car garage with basic hand tools and jack stands. I blacked out my intercooler with black radiator paint. Beefcake can be reached 7 days a week.

I had a friend there if I needed him, but the install was done by myself 99% of the time alone. With the spark plugs, injectors, bap, and kit install took me about maybe 16-18 hours. I was taking my time, I started early on Saturday and should have stopped when I got tired, but I didn't so the first part of Sunday was spend going over what I did Saturday. I would say that I could install another kit in 12-14 hours now, with little to no help.

The one part of the install where it definitely helps to have a friend was getting the belt on. Theres no way I could have done that by myself.

I didn't have a problem getting belt on alone, but I did use my friend to reinstall the bumper and to hold and mark it to plan my cuts.
