Step By Step

Vortech Engineering’s Ysi supercharger can pack a punch and has powered a number of class cars well into 8-second quarter-mile times. Max impeller speed is rated at 65,000 rpm with a max flow rating of 1,600 cfm. For our cog pulley combination, we used an 80-tooth lower with a 29-tooth upper, which produced 16.7 psi of boost. CHP
