It seems to be working great. I originally had the Hobbs switch in the neck of the upper manifold, and had to move it to the plenum. It seems that the air velocity that close to the throttle body wouldn't allow the switch to function properly.
I didn't see enough of a drop for it to be noticeable, but Vortech says up to 1 psi or so. But, since the charge is cooler I did see a +20 rwhp gain without any other chages.
I did it mostly for the protection against detonation, and I am really glad I did it. I've read posts where people say they saw a few mph at the 1/8th with just putting ice in the cooler.
I'd do it again, given the choice. Where it would really be an advantage is with race gas and ice in the cooler, with a dual stage chip or somehow to take advantage of the cooler charge and more timing. I wouldn't mind doing that someday, but for now it is just a little bit of extra protection.
I have an old school roots blower on my fox coupe that doesn't have an integral idle bypass like the modern blowers have. From what I understand, this valve will circulate air from the outlet of the blower back to the inlet in an effort to reduce pumping losses and heat generation. Results...
What are your blower goals for 2018?
Very late start to the 2018 thread. The 2017 thread had decent traction and I'm interested to hear how many of you met your goals and what new goals have been started!

Are there any dealers or anyone else here that can get me information on a Vortech serial number? I contacted Vortech and don't know if I just got a bad tech or what but he told me:
"Thank you for your interest in Vortech. This serial number isn’t coming up on our digital records."
