Another successful year for Lysholm and The Air Power Group, as evidenced by the fact that you couldn’t walk anywhere in the show without seeing a Vortech, Paxton, or Lysholm logo staring you right in the face! Take a look at some of the photos we got of the show, and be sure to send us any of your own!
We found the Stitch Craft Camaro SS Convertible in North Hall, sitting pretty in the Pecca Leather booth. Custom paint – check. Custom interior – Check. Wheels, Tires, and Brakes – Check. Lysholm 2.3L Twin-Screw Supercharging System under the hood – Check.
Walking around the show, we found this Weistec Engineering Supercharged 6.3L Mercedes Benz on a dyno display. Weistec uses the 2.3L Lysholm Twin-Screw Superchargers in the outstanding systems they offer for Mercedes vehicles. Be sure to check them out.
The Delta Tech Bold Spirit Camaro SS was on display in the Delta Lights booth. It was one of the many Lysholm 2.3L Twin-screw Supercharged Gen. 5 Camaros on the property this year showing the other guys how it is done.
Our friend Gary S’s Lysholm Twin-Screw Supercharged Camaro SS was looking sharp in the Wössner booth. This Gen. 5 beast is always gleaming white and ready to show off it’s Lysholm Twin-Screw Supercharging system lurking under the hood.

The rockstars at Rocky Mountain Competitive Research are at it again. This time, they took their customer Dustin’s Lysholm Supercharged Camaro SS and cranked it up to an amazingly impressive 621 rear wheel horsepower and 622 rear wheel torque!
This same Lysholm 2.3L Twin-Screw Supercharged Camaro that drew lots of attention in the Vortech/Lysholm/R.M.C.R. booth at Camaro5Fest II, is now breathing a lot more fire thanks to the addition of an R.M.C.R. Custom Grind Camshaft, 3.00″ Supercharger Pulley, ARH 1 7/8″ Long Tube Headers, a Borla Attak Exhaust, and custom tuning from R.M.C.R.Already happy with the performance of his S/C’d SS, now Dustin is ecstatic about his new and improved beast. “This car is a whole different animal now!”
Want to transform your new SS into a street bruiser or a sinister sleeper? Maybe it’s time to give Lysholm Twin-Screw Superchargers a try.
Vortech ventured out to Firebird International Raceway in Arizona for the 2nd Annual gathering of 5th generation Camaros, dubbed Camaro5Fest II. Joining forces with Rocky Mountain Competitive Research, our Top Tier Dealer/Installer from Colorado Springs, CO, we hit the track in good spirits ready for a good time…and the C5 crew did not disappoint!
RMCR put together this sick Vortech Centrifugal System on a display engine to really give the crowd a good look at what the kit looks like up close & personal. It helped to show how the Vortech intercooler is over twice the size of what the competitors use.
R.M.C.R. customer Dustin had his Lysholm Twin-Screw Supercharging System installed just in time for Camaro5Fest. He couldn’t stop talking about how happy he was with his choice. The Lysholm System is a great choice for all gen. 5 Camaro owners who want to go the positive displacement route!.The 530rwhp and 516rwtq this 2.3L Twin-Screw Supercharger made on an otherwise virtually stock Camaro SS puts many of the other competitor’s offerings out there to shame!Gary Shellum, or 1RADCAMARO on Camaro5, had his gorgeous Lysholm Twin-Screw Supercharged SS Camaro all over the show! We saw it on the track, on display, in the Air Lift booth, in the US Wheels booth, and all over the place! Thanks for coming out and representing Gary!.
This stock looking SS is what you would call a SLEEPER. While unassuming on the outside, this beast sports an R.M.C.R. built LSX 427 engine with Callies internals, Diamond Pistons, cnc ported heads, custom camshaft, FAST 102mm intake manifold, Nick Williams 102mm throttle body, Katech carbon valve covers, Stainless Works 2″ Headers and 3″ exhaust, Fore Precision triple 255lph pump setup, BMR subframes, sway bars, trailing arms, toe rods, strut tower brace, KW coilovers, AP Racing J-hook brake rotors, a DSS 9″ rearend conversion with Moser aluminum center section, and to top it all off…a cog-driven Vortech V-7 YSi-Trim Supercharging System. Although the guys from R.M.C.R. didn’t quite finish tuning it before they had to leave for the event, it still wore a dyno sheet showing it put down over 919rwhp through its heavy duty 9″ rear end. That’s nearly 1,100 horsepower at the crank!Also in the sleeper department, this 700+ horsepower Tahoe was in the Vortech/R.M.C.R booth showing more of what the R.M.C.R. guys do best – make things really fast! Sporting a built engine and a Vortech V-7 YSi-Trim Supercharger and Air-to-Water Power Cooler, the owner claims he built it to destroy Porsche Cayenne Turbos. When asked how this unassuming silver SUV does in that endeavor, he simply replied “It works!”.The famous Guillermo Garcia, or Tribone as he is known as on Camaro5, brought out his Vortech V-3 Supercharged black beauty, and had it displayed prominently in the US Wheels booth. Running himself ragged as one of the event organizers, we saw him hurriedly speeding here and there throughout the entire event. Hope you had some time to relax once it was all over, G!Dave Christensen (d69chris) and his customized Inferno Orange Metallic SS took full advantage of the show. When he wasn’t racing the car on the track, Dave was showing off his V-3 Si-Trim Supercharged ride in the SoCal section of the car show area. We hear Dave also won the prize for “best exterior”. Great job Dave, but you know us…we are usually more partial to what you’ve got under the hood..
We found Andrew M’s (shevyman) Vortech Supercharged Hot Wheels Camaro sittin’ low in the Air Lift Booth. From the looks of it, he hadn’t anticipated us asking to lift the hood for photos. C’mon Andrew…it’s a CAR SHOW. You can’t just clean the outside of your car!Here are some other great pictures from the event for you to enjoy.
Although not Supercharged, this tribute Camaro was definitely worth checking out. Not only does it honor our country, but the amount of hours in airbrushing alone this must have taken is truly amazing!
Thank you to Camaro5, R.M.C.R., Tribone, d69chris, 1RADCAMARO, shevyman, Mike, Mark, Zack, Keith, Don, Colin, Dustin, and everyone else in attendance. We’ll see you next year!
James Smith, or “Smitty” as he is more commonly known, and his shop STS808 in Kapolei, Hawaii built this 2011 4.8L Silverado LS to show off some of the many things they can do. Although still a work in progress, this bagged and Supercharged ride may be just the thing to go rolling around paradise in style.
Under the hood, the most prominent addition to the factory 4.8L Chevy engine is definitely the Lysholm 2300AX Supercharging System. Along with the boost, Smitty added a Ligenfelter 160° thermostat, NGK TR6 spark plugs, and a set of Spintech mufflers out back. This combination was good for a base tune result of 404RWHP and 400RWTQ! Smitty says a set of long tube headers and a retune are in the truck’s near future for even more power and torque.To get this GM Full Size sitting low, a list of suspension parts were thrown at it, including a Ekstensive front control arm kit with Monroe Sensa Track Corvette shocks, Ekstensive Rear 2-link and notch With Monroe Mono-Tube shocks, 4 – 2600 lb bags, 8 – SMC 1/2″ valves, 2 – SMC Air dryers, 2 – 5 gallon tanks, 2 – VIAR 444 compressors, AVS billet digital gauge, AVS billet switch box, Narrowed 4 inch rear end.
The modifications to the body include a Stylin’ Trucks Rear Rollpan, Carriage Works black billet upper and lower grills, mono-chromed grill and front bumper, shaved tailgate with Sir Michaels handle relocator, Tubbed bed and notch cover, Spray lined bed, an Undercover bed cover, and the truck rolls around on a set of 22″ Intro Radicalli’s for now, with a new set of 24″ Intro Radicalli’s on order.
In the electronics department, Smitty installed 2 Stinger 2250 amp dry cell batteries, Stinger Alternator, Kenwood Excelon DDX 896 head unit, Samsung Slide 7 (for center console will run HPtuner gauges), 2 Galaxy Tabs in the headrests, 3 Phoenix Gold Ti2500 amps, 2 Phoenix Gold Ti 800.4 amps, 4 Phoenix Gold Ti65 component speakers, 6 Phoenix Gold TI212 12″ subs, with a blow through sub enclosure in the bed.
The new Lysholm Twin-Screw Supercharging System is now available for the 2010+ Gen. 5 Camaro SS. The System comes complete with everything you’ll need to bolt directly up to your Camaro and bring your power up to over 500RWHP, which translates to nearly 600 horsepower at the crank! What sets the Lysholm apart from the brand X units you ask? Well, besides being the originator of the twin-screw compressor being more efficient, we automatically include components in our system some of our competitors like to leave out.
– High Flow Fuel Rails? INCLUDED
– Billet Aluminum MAF Housing with properly relocated IAT sensor? INCLUDED
– Roto-molded Cold Air Intake? INCLUDED
– Dual-pass Air-to-Water Charge Cooler? INCLUDED

Phil Doré has a very angry beast on his hands thanks to his going with the Lysholm 3300AX Supercharger Upgrade, along with his other modifications. After pulling off a broken brand X supercharger, Phil has been able to consistently make more power with less boost than before, and the car has never been as fast or as fun to drive!
Check out Phil’s car from the SVTPerformance.com Dyno Day @ GTR High Performance
Phil’s mods include:
– Lysholm 3300AX Supercharger Upgrade ~16psi (91 Octane Pump Gas)
– SCT3000 MAF
– 60lb Injectors
– KB B-A-P
– Kooks 1 3/4″ Long Tubes
– Magnaflow Cat-back
– Crower Stage 3 Blower Cams
– Crower HD Springs & Retainers
– Tuning by Greg @ RET
Would you like power like this in your Terminator? Time to ditch that factory blower, dump that brand X knock off, and go with the originator of the Twin-Screw Supercharger. Lysholm products are now sold through Vortech Distributors everywhere, so get on the phone, get on your computer, drive to your local speed shop, and get yours on order today!
When getting into the blower upgrade market, we at Lysholm expected to see some impressive combinations. We’ve seen some great ones, all making awesome power while retaining the ability to be daily driven and reliable. Then, a little birdie told us about another Terminator that was making some serious horsepower on the East Coast, and we couldn’t wait to find out more. Come to find out, it was making an insane 755RWHP while still on pump gas!
Eddie Klaugh, an auto mechanic from Eastern Virginia, is the proud owner this rocketship. Eddie and his wife Jennifer are both boost fanatics, owning several boosted vehicles over time, including multiple Vortech and Paxton Supercharged Mustangs. When it was time to upgrade the supercharger on Eddie’s 2004 Terminator Cobra, they chose to go with the 3.3L Lysholm Twin-Screw System “Because of the big 3.3 displacement, and being able to clear the stock hood without lowering the k-member. Also, owning Vortech kits on both of our other Mustangs, we knew it would be a quality product.”
When asked what they thought of the system now that it is installed, Jennifer said “First impression is this thing is a monster on the street! Can’t believe how much power it made with such a soft tune on 93 octane with low timing. It should see over 800rwhp with c16 and an aggressive tune on the same boost. Can only imagine what it would make on the 3.75 pulley we have.”
Current setup on the car includes the Lysholm 3300AX Supercharger Upgrade System, Vortech Maxflow throttle body, Vortech Maxflow 5″ air inlet with 123mm mass air housing, 6 gallon ice box with Meziere pump in trunk, LFP heat exchanger, Livernois Stage 3 cylinder heads with Ford GT cams, ARP head studs, Melling oil pump, Kooks 1 7/8″ long tube headers and 3″ exhaust, ACT twin disc clutch and 26 spline input shaft, full tubular front suspension and coil overs, Strange adjustable shocks front and rear, a built and braced 8.8 rearend, with Falken rubber 275 front & 325 rear. The results are startling…
Future plans for the Klaugh’s Terminator are to get a race gas tune and install a roll cage. They are interested in competing with the car in a few NMRA events coming up as well. Jennifer says “Eddie is the best driver I know, that’s why I married him. He is looking forward to getting the car in the 9’s with the 6 speed…it should be a 9 second Lysholm Supercharged daily driver!” We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.
Eddie and Jennifer wanted to give a huge thank you to Mike Rousch from Mid Atlantic Performance in Richmond, VA for “working late hours getting our cars tuned around our crazy schedules”.
The Tjin Edition RoadShow Ends 2010 With a Bang!
This past weekend the Tjin Edition RoadShow came out in full force at the MotorMavens Mass Appeal / Ken Block Gymkhana Grid Invitational at Irwindale Speedway.
The massive 80×30 Tjin Edition RoadShow booth was set-up at the front of the vendor midway / car show area and had a HUGE presence at the show.
On display in the RoadShow booth were some of the most talked about cars from SEMA, including the aLL STaR Chevy Camaro, the Tjin Edition Chevy Camaro and 5.0L Ford Mustang GT, the UTI Ford Fiesta, and the Fortune Motorsports Honda CR-Z.
Besides these high profile display vehicles, the RoadShow booth was also outfitted with some of the best aftermarket products in the industry.
The show was a huge success and the team had a great time interacting with fellow car enthusiast, the media, vendors, drivers and spectators alike.
Neil Tjin and crew made a special point to say thank you to each and everyone of thier RoadShow partners, including Air Lift, Royal Purple, Webasto, iForged, Forgestar, Vortech, Paxton, Lysholm, UTI, Baer, Auto Meter, MagnaFlow, StreetGlow, Status Racing, and all the partners that supplied parts for these amazing display vehicles. “We would not have been able to build these display vehicles and put on this incredible RoadShow without our partners support and their outstanding products. We have had an amazing time on the road this year with the RoadShow and we look forward to even bigger and better things in 2011 and beyond.”

GTR High Performance has one of the most loyal customer bases in Southern California, and it is no surprise as to why. Starting out as a Mustang specialty shop, GTR has consistently grown over the years to today, where they work on most popular performance vehicles in their 8,500 square foot facility in Rancho Cucamonga, CA. A family run operation, GTR is owned and operated by brothers Gonzalo & Ricardo Topete, and are frequently described as 2 of the nicest guys in the industry. Always preforming quality work, always willing to go the extra mile, always willing to help out a customer in need…GTR is more than a shop to much of their clientele. That is why it is no surprise that when GTR has their annual open house, the turnout is always large, and it always makes for a fun day.
Air Power Group brands Vortech Superchargers, Paxton Automotive, and Lysholm Twin-Screw came out to represent their products , and support GTR High Performance as a Dealer and Top Tier Installation facility for everything they have to offer. Here are some pictures and video from the event.
Fresh from the SEMA show, Vortech brought out the same Race Red 2011 5.0L Mustang GT that was one of the highlights of their booth.
Vortech’s 20th Anniversary Black Edition Supercharging System carries this car’s black & red color scheme under the hood.
Also just back from SEMA, the WD40 Mustang was showing off the new Paxton 2011 5.0L Supercharging System with NOVI 2200 Supercharger and air-to-air intercooler.
Phil Dore from Magnaflow Exhaust brought out his monster Terminator Cobra with 3.3L Lysholm Twin-Screw Supercharger package. In addition to looking great, his car won the dyno competition, laying down over 628rwhp on GTR’s Dynojet!
Speedfactory’s Vortech Supercharged 5.7L Challenger R/T got the MOPAR fans in attendance excited about supercharging their rides.
Daniel Velarde’s Paxton NOVI 2200 Supercharged “Body Ink” Mustang GT was looking great as the main feature in the TruFiber booth.

Brian Ellis & Erica Gordon’s Vortech V-Power Supercharged S197 was looking sharp as usual.
Dan Ellebracht’s PSCA-prepped Fox Body is NOVI 2000 equipped and ready to make some serious power! Look for him to begin competing next season!
Thanks to GTR High Performance and their customers for a good day. We are already looking forward to next year!
From Street Legal TV:
Power adders have the been the most popular power improvements on the new-age big three. Following up with Lysholm’s rendition is their twin screw supercharging system, featuring the Lysholm 2300 supercharger. The 2300 utilizes a custom air inlet manifold designed to fit under the Camaro’s hood without cutting and mates to the factory throttle body. An integrated air/water charge cooler configuration features a closed loop water cooling system with a stand-alone pump, tank and dual-pass front mounted heat exchanger. The intake assembly includes high-flow ducting and re-uses the factory hydrocarbon trap, which is required for 50 state CARB certification.
The kit is a direct bolt on and can be optioned with their 3 year, 36,000 powertrain warranty. Lysholm says to kit will make around 620 horsepower with the given seven pounds of boost through the six rib pulley, with the capability of producing over 700 horsepower with a smaller pulley. For fuel management the kit includes a hand-held programmer (controls ignition timing and fuel enrichment), extruded aluminum replacement fuel rails, high-flow fuel injectors and braided stainless steel fuel hoses.
The aLL STaR Performance 2011 Camaro SS not only looked great in the booth, it also won not one, but TWO awards at the show!
The Deltatech Camaro was front & center in the Central Hall inside the Deltatech Lighting booth.
The Real Autoworks (RAW) Camaro caused everyone stop and look as they walked into the main show entrance
Come See The New Lysholm Twin-Screw Supercharged aLL STaR Performance Chevy Camaro SS At SEMA 2010 (Booth #22963)…
With the Chevrolet Camaro SS being at the forefront of the modern muscle movement, the aLL STaR team took note of the design that GM originally wanted to market and made it their own. On the exterior, the first thing you’ll notice is the custom Autobahn Blue finish thanks to Dupont. Fighting for your attention, the first ever set of 22×9″ and 22×10.5″ Forgestar Concave F14 wheels are wrapped in Falken Tire rubber are mounted in front of Baer’s brake upgrade kit and then accented thanks to Air Lift’s digital suspension.
Making your way inside the vehicle, the custom red leather interior, Unique Fabrication harness bar and Status Racing harnesses show that the aLL STaR Camaro is all business but if you’re a true gearhead, you’ll know where the real eye catching appeal is found, under the hood. Thanks to Lysholm’s brand new 2.3L Twin-Screw Supercharging System, this once tame Chevrolet Camaro SS has now turned into a true monster ready to tackle whatever is thrown it’s way. Along with additional power adders from MagnaFlow Performance Exhaust and American Racing Headers, the aLL STaR Camaro is the perfect example of how to create an everyday street cruiser that can easily be taken to the track on weekends.
Come see the culmination of design, style, and performance in the Vortech/Lysholm Twin-Screw Superchargers Booth (#22963) at this year’s SEMA Show in Las Vegas

Tim from Modular Depot’s GT500 is making colossal power these days thanks to his Lysholm 3.3L Supercharging System, Kooks Headers, and Ford Racing Axle Back Exhaust.
717RWHP and 672RWTQ!
It was a beautiful day, and a great turnout which was once again one of the best shows of the year. The Mustangs At The Queen Mary Event in Long Beach, California brings out all measure of Mustang & Ford enthusiast to see what is new and hot, and to showcase what they’ve got.
New for this year was the highly anticipated Vortech Supercharging System for the 2011 5.0L Mustang GT. Among the lineup of amazing cars that Vortech brought along with GTR High Performance was a newly Supercharged Race Red GT that drew a massive amount of attention throughout the show.
Another star of the show was the Street Scene Equipment Vortech Supercharged 2010 GT. Shining brightly in the Long Beach sun, this gorgeous car has got everything going for it – looks, style, speed, handling, and Vortech boost!
Many people expressed interest in the 3.3L Lysholm Twin-Screw Supercharged GT500 belonging to Carlos Cortez, being that it was 5.0 Mustang & Super Fords selection for the recent Castrol Syntec Top Car Challenge, and was stickered up and ready to race!
Phil Dore’s Terminator Cobra came to the show fresh off the dyno rollers at RET, where it made 631rwhp @14psi with his new 3.3L Lysholm Twin-Screw Supercharging System.
Oscar Zavala’s black on black GT convertible is Vortech Supercharged and Paxton Intercooled, drawing through an Anderson Power Pipe and feeding into his Accufab throttle body, Accufab Intake Plenum, and down into his built 4.6L engine.
Most people have seen Daniel Velarde’s airbrushed “Body Ink” 2010 Mustang GT either in magazines or on the internet, but it still never fails to draw a crowd of onlookers when seen in person. Daniel is now hooked on Paxton boosted power, thanks to his ride seeing more horses these days due to an intercooled Paxton NOVI 2200 System being installed, along with a Ford Racing throttle body and FR500S exhaust.
Manny Dubon’s ’96 Saleen Speedster is a beautiful example of why the Saleen name rose to popularity as fast as it did and has remained a fan favorite to this day. Manny’s car features the Vortech V-2 S-Trim High-Output Intercooled Supercharging System, Racecraft Suspension, UPR offroad pipe, and Borla Exhaust.
Eddie Garcia’s S351 Saleen is sporting some heavy equipment, having his original V-1 S-Trim Supercharger with Anderson Power Pipe bolted to an upgraded 408 cubic inch engine with AFR Heads, Hooker Headers, and various additional go fast goodies.
Bill Switzer’s beautiful red GT has been seen in our Blog before, and Bill brought it out to the Queen Mary to show off the fruits of his labor in person.
Everyone loves Bob Lee’s ’57 Ford. It’s classic body looks go unbelievably well with the polished engine compartment and Paxton NOVI Supercharging System under the hood. In addition to the Paxton Supercharger, Bob’s ride currently features a 351W engine with forged pistons & rods, Edelbrock aluminum heads, Edelbrock aluminum “Air Gap” high-rise intake manifold, a Holley 4150 style carburetor, and a T10 toploader 4 speed transmission.
The first word that comes to mind when describing this sick Fox Body is CLEAN. Extremely well done with an immaculate engine compartment, the Vortech V-2 Supercharging System and Vortech fuel rails jump right at you along with the rest of the entire engine, which is polished in all the right places.
This Laser Red SN95 GT also had a nice, clean, and polished up engine compartment… complete with the compulsory Vortech V-2 System to bring the boost.
This green machine has quite a bit of customization done to it in addition to the Paxton NOVI 2200 Intercooled Supercharging System under the hood. Check out the flames, Killer Glass radiator hose, and the airbrushed gator on the underside of the hood!
This gorgeous Roush jumped into our freeway caravan on the way to the show, and he fit right in with his Vortech charge cooled V-2 Supercharging System whistling away under the hood just like the rest of our crew. The customized red accents under the hood really go a long way to set this car apart from so many others.
The Hillbank Motorsports Shelby CS8 was lookin’ fine all decked out with its Paxton/Shelby Supercharging System underhood.
This hot blue Fox Body has a lot going for it, with a nice stance, custom color paint, polished engine compartment, and a Paxton NOVI 2000 feeding the boost to it.
Another great Fox Body was this race ready example from Performance Associates. Cleaned up engine compartment, Vortech Supercharger, boxed intake manifold, and drag suspension made this car stand out nicely.
Going for a triple white theme, this convertible Fox featured white paint, white interior, and Cobra R wheels, along with a Vortech V-3 System, and an Edelbrock intake manifold.
Going in the complete opposite direction of the white Fox above, this super stealth GT had everything blacked out except for his Vortech Supercharger!
This silver GT is rocking an Aftercooled Vortech System, Anderson Power Pipe, Professional Products Intake Plenum, Cervinis hood, and Saleen S281 spoiler.
This GT was in a line of 3 Vortech Supercharged beauties in a row. Although the third car was silver, we can still think of it as an American boosted tribute…red, white (silver), and blue.
Phil From Magnaflow’s Terminator Cobra Makes More Power With Less Boost After Upgrading To Lysholm Twin-Screw Power…
Phil Dore, Product Manager for Magnaflow Exhaust is no stranger to aftermarket products that work. When it came time to buy a project car, Phil knew that a Terminator Cobra would be a great choice to not only use to showcase the great products that his company makes, but also to reach all of his personal horsepower and performance goals. After maxing out the factory Eaton Blower, Phil upgraded his blower to a competitor’s unit in his quest for more power. However, after suffering a blower failure, Phil turned to his friends at Vortech & GTR High Performance to try out their new Lysholm Twin-Screw 3.3L Supercharger Upgrade System.
Hoping to make similar power as his previous system with the potential to go for more at a later date, the new 3.3L Lysholm Twin-Screw Supercharger Upgrade System was more than up to the task, capable of supporting 800+ horsepower at over 25psi. After getting the install done at GTR, Phil brought his Terminator to Racer’s Edge Tuning for a custom dyno tune on their 224x Dynojet chassis dyno. Having made a respectable 575/490 at 16.5psi before his Lysholm upgrade, Phil was blown away to find he was making more power with less boost pressure than his previous setup! When all was said and done, Phil’s Cobra laid down 631 Horsepower & 529 Lbs. of Torque at only 14psi.
Phil says “I’m very happy with the 3.3L and would recommend it to anyone. I will get a smaller pulley later on for 20# + and get a c16 tune but 631/519 is a ton of power at only 14psi. This blower has a ton of potential!”
Phil wants to give a big thanks to Greg and RET, Vortech/Lysholm, and everyone at GTR High Performance!
We know that not every Shelby GT500 owner wants to step straight up to our 3.3L Lysholm Twin-Screw Supercharger, but why deprive everyone of the quality products and Engineering that Vortech manufactures just because of that? Vortech has added to the successful line of Maxflow products by releasing the new Maxflow Power Pack for the 5.4L Shelby GT500.

aLL STaR Performance’s Lysholm Twin-Screw Supercharged 2011 Camaro Will Be The SEMA Car Build To Watch In 2010…
aLL STaR Performance, led by Gene Marcel will be designing and building a truly unique 2011 Chevrolet Camaro SS, which will make its debut at the 2011 SEMA Show. Marcel and his team are no strangers to the car customizing world, having started out in South Florida in the late 90’s and now continuing in Southern California. Since 1996, Gene and his team have been involved with a wide variety of automobiles ranging from two high profile Bomex Honda Accords to their latest 2010 project, an Infiniti G37 Coupe. In between those builds, the guys from aLL STaR have also designed, built and toured a tuner style Scion xB, a Euro styled Volvo S40, a VIP themed Infiniti G35, as well as a 2006 and 2009 Honda Fit.
There are plenty of things to get excited about with this build, starting off with the rendering done by the Gurnade Design Firm. Gurnade was in charge of taking a list of ideas from paper and working their magic to transform it into what you see in the rendering.
The aLL STaR Performance crew has joined forces with some of the top automotive players, all of whose products will be incorporated into the final build. Some of these brands include Lysholm Twin-Screw Superchargers, Forgestar Wheels, Baer brakes, Falken Tires, Air Lift Suspension, Extreme Dimensions, Dupont, American Racing Headers, Innovate Motorsports, Azentek, Status Racing, STACK, Autometer, Trent’s Trick Upholstry, MagnaFlow Exhaust Products, Webasto, Ignited HID, Light WurkZ, StreetGlow, Metra, Image Dynamics, TechAFX, S.P.E.C, Royal Purple and Real AutoWorks.
Some of the highlights to the aLL STaR Performance Chevrolet Camaro SS include a set of 22×11” Forgestar wheels, a custom set of Baer brakes, Air Lift digital suspension, Lysholm Twin-Screw Supercharger and a custom paint mix thanks to Dupont.
Over the next few months leading up to the SEMA show the entire build will be documented by Marcel and his team. Be sure to keep up to date with progress on the aLL STaR Performance Chevrolet Camaro SS by following the entire build-up on the 2010 SEMA Project Build Ups page on Facebook!

After seeing the power and torque that previous Lysholm Twin-Screw Supercharged GM Trucks put down on their dyno, Gonzalo from GTR High Performance decided that he had to have the same system on his own 2007 Tahoe. The Lysholm 2.3L Supercharging System comes complete, and makes ~7.5-8psi on an otherwise stock GM Truck/SUV.
The “before” dyno showing 262rwhp is with a Gibson cat back exhaust and a K&N cold air induction kit. The “after” dyno shows significant boosted power and torque, gaining an additional 132rwhp and 118rwtq, for a final boosted showing of 394rwhp and 400rwtq. Stock engine, 91 octane pump gas, with a conservative, daily drivable tune.
