I think you would be fine with it at 85k, shoot its just getting warmed up. Lol. Is this the new positive displacement s\c? The reason I ask is because centirs use an air to air intercooler vs the liguid to air found on most positive displacement s\c's. If you are getting the new pos dis from vortech, congrats, your the first I've heard of getting one.

Vortech uses a air/water ic for their centrifuge SC's.




Their twin screw is made by lysholm and sold through vortech. There's no kit for the mustang yet.

mine will probably have between 80 and 81k on it before summer is out and I plan on throwin 9psi of KB beastly-ness at it lol I dont see where you'll have a problem....450 rwhp is about the max with the stock rotating assembly (some people have broken that number with no problems however) I'm gonna have it tuned conservatively to 420 (hopefully it'l make that much without havin to push the envelope to much lol) and call it a day....I would rather have longevity for the time being than high numbers and short life span :)

I completely forgot about that type of intercooler. Sorry for the mislead to anyone else reading. I always think of the air to air when talking about a centri.

I wanted that Vortech HO kit for along time, but didn't have $5k. I ended up buying a used Vortech V1 and got a air-water setup pieced together from a bunch of different places. I have a 2000 gt with 87k miles, cast iron windsor block. When it came to making the air-water setup, I used the Vortech HO kit as a template.

One thing I noticed about the Vortech HO kit is that it uses a small 12x7" radiator mounted kind of strangely in the front bumper. It actually faces downward from the pics I have seen, meaning it sits flat in the front bumper. I thought that was odd, why not mount the radiator so the air flows through it?

I mounted mine sitting straight up and down. It does block the engine radiator, but I have to think that the flow of air is better. I ended up getting another one and mounting them in series for even more cooling of the water in the system.

I have not heard of anyone complaining about the Vortech setup in terms of water heat, but maybe looking into a second radiator or a fan for the one that comes with the kit might be a good upgrade.
