Vortech question

I just got a Vortech V-3 self lubricating supercharger from A.M. and was wondering if anyone else had the V3? There is a braided line coming off the bottom I presume is the oil drain? The reason I question this is because it looks like a pressure line not just a drain tube.

Yes it is a drain hose. There is a dipstick at the top of the blower. The oil in the blower needs to be changed after the first 500 miles.

Re: Vortech question

Thanks. That's what I was thinking but a friend thought it was a oil feed, just wanted to be sure.

Are you getting it dyno tuned after the install? Curious to know the gains.

Re: Vortech question

Yeah I'm getting it tuned as soon as I can take it out of the garage. We still have a couple of feet of snow to deal with. The guy that runs the dyno said his brother had the same car with the same basic mods and put down 385 rwhp. That's the ball park I'm shooting for I'll post the numbers when I can.
