R.M.C.R. Performance + Lysholm Boosted Camaro SS + Cam & Custom Tune = 621/622 At The Wheels!

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.

Lysholm, Vortech, and R.M.C.R. Hit Firebird Raceway For Camaro5Fest II…

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!

STS808 Brings The Boost To A Bagged & Customized Chevy

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 truck is almost 4 months old and Smitty says there is still “so much more to complete!” Check out the custom US Postal Service temporary gauge pod Smitty put in while the truck was being tuned…

Phil Doré’s 3.3L Lysholm Supercharged Terminator Cobra Is An Angry Beast…

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!

– KB B-A-P
– Kooks 1 3/4″ Long Tubes
– Magnaflow Cat-back

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!

Eddie Klaugh’s Terminator Makes An Incredible 755RWHP On Pump Gas With Lysholm 3.3L…

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”.

GTR High Performance Open House & Dyno Day…


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.
