Anyone install the Vortech upgrade kit on their 2011 Stang?

Have a base Vortech blower kit on my '11 GT. They now offer a cold airkit/fuel pump booster kit...my shop just installed on another car for $1,700 and it made an additional 100 RWHP...seems reasonable -anyone else out there do this???

100whp from a boost a pump and cold air seems really high. Maybe it was limited from stock fuel pump. A boost a pump lets you make the stock fuel pump 50% more fuel. Really the blower could arleady make it just car couldn't.

Also 1700 is really high to install a cold air and boost a pump. Boost a pump takes 20 min install. And you could do it your self.

Good point on doing the install myself. Forgot to mention it includes a new Vortech tune as well. The open element air filter allows for approx one extra psi of boost.

Yep that what they claim with the open air filter. I am going on dyno next week. I plan to try and test that.

If comes with new tune do it your self. Putting the bap on is so so easy.

would you know if the BAP concept is that it forces the stock pump to sorta "overdrive" by pushing more amperage? Early failure potential?

BTW, my shop was gonna install the Vortech open air kit, but use the Brenspeed tune...wrapped together as a package...u heard of this?

Yes it puts more volts to make it push harder. Yes it will cut down the life of the fuel pump in the end. Only other option is a fuel system. Right now ones out run about 1500 not installed.

Very common they use the tune that come with the bap and stuff. If they ordering this way I'm sure you can from brenspeed cheaper.
