      Name: Kieran
      Started with VF stage II in 2007 which was changed for a CCR racing Rotrex kit in 2009

      The car:


      VF stage II install


      What I liked:
      The performance
      The sound, the V9 sounded good at 5K+rpm
      The look of a nice big shiny SC in the bay

      What I disliked:
      The rough sound at idle
      Oil leaks killing 6 MAF’s
      2 rebuilds in less than a year

      Rotrex install:


      Spec:
      - Rotrex C30-94 giving 14PSI
      - 550cc injectors
      - UM software
      - UM 4”MAF
      - Aquamist water and methanol injection
      - Wossner pistons
      - Milltek manifolds, sports cats and catback exhaust

      The C30-94 is rated at 0.39 kg/s or 747CFM, however I know from the MAF it’s flowing 420g/s or 0.42kg/s which is 805CFM (if it got the math right)

      Likes:
      The power, currently getting 474@ flywheel or 362@wheels
      No problems with slipping belts
      Reliability, the Rotrex was fitted at 60,000. The car is now on 91,000, the only maintenance needed for the SC is an oil change. Did suffer from a bearing failure in one of the idler pulleys
      Stealthy install, just looks like a CAI

      Dislikes:
      Not as quiet as I was lead to believe
      Lower MPG (downside of big power)
      Position of air filter, have to be careful when there is standing water or deep puddles on the road.

      To see how far the C30 will go, the Milltek system is coming off, the OEM manifolds have been opened out and will be mated to 2.25” down pipes and a custom 3” exhaust with de-cat.
      New down pipes vs stock R32 down pipes

      Kieran,

      Very nice writeup! I like all the details and info...Im not sure where to place you with the C30 in the above catagories? Do you have cams?

      Again very nice!

      This is all I got for now.


      It's 300cell magnaflow's in a USP testpipe and a EIP competition catback.

      Buttdyno wouldn't have known a change because I had that on before the supercharger.

      Ellery, you're gonna get me in trouble. lol

      I took the supercharger kit off my red R32 and found oil in the air intake and piping. What can cause this and can it affect performance? Has anybody relocated the pcv on the vf kits?

      Yes, I will post up some pics later...This is kinda the first common subject for this new thread.

      Oil in the intake tube/fouled MAF=Running like crap and less power due to lower octane.

      As soon as I saw the oil I knew something was up. Can you give me some more details on the pcv delete/move to a new spot?

      Ok details...The VF kit is vented into the intake, the intake is kinda small so its creates a vacuum at high RPM's sucking the gunk and oil vapor out of the head onto your MAF and into your boost tubes/engine etc. This oil now mixes with your fuel/air mixture makeing your R32 into a weed eater burning all that oil.

      The fix is to NOT vent into the intake tube...

      Vortech vents their kits straight into the bottom of the airfilter, the bottom of the air filter has negligible vacuum even at high RPM's. So the small amount of vapors coming out of the PCV vent hole still get sucked into the intake system but its done properly without mess or smell...

      Its just that simple

      Didn't really think of that.. Price isn't too bad either. Hell, then I could make a 6 rib..

      It is AMAZING. I still am having some problems with the UM tune but that should be worked out when I head back to PA...It does not help having crappy 91 on post when the tune is for 93 either. I will put it on the rollers when I have everything straightened out. I will do a couple runs in its current state, and then throw on a different pulley and run it again.
