All About Boost and Vortech Superchargers
Vortech & Paxton Superchargers @ The 11th Annual American Muscle Mustang Show...
Maple Grove Raceway in Pennsylvania is surrounded by hills of green and winding roads. It is also the site of the American Muscle Mustang Show, now on its Eleventh Year. Mustang enthusiasts from all over the country come to display their Pony Cars and commune with fellow Ford Fans of all ages. Easily one of the best all Ford shows of the year, we look forward to making the trip to PA each year to speak with customers and take pictures of all of the Vortech and Paxton Supercharged Mustangs we can find on the property. Here is some of what we found at this year's event.
The Vortech and Paxton Superchargers Booth during setup (above) vs. during the show (below). We had a great day talking with everyone, and the booth was packed solid with people all day long wanting to discuss getting one of the most efficient and reliable Superchargers available today for their own Mustangs. Product flyers are a must for shows. Speak to us at the event, and then take a flyer and refer back to it after the event. There is lots of great information on each one about the specific make/model/year applications they apply to.
The Vortech V-30 123A Supercharger we had on display got lots of people talking, gawking, and taking photos. The V-30 Series of Race Superchargers vary in size from 91mm to 131mm. The 123A unit we had on display will support 2,800+ horsepower, and the 131A will support over 3,500 horsepower!
Our friend Josh (@smoked_magnetic_gt) brought out his Vortech Supercharged 2018 Mustang for the event. The gorgeous 10R80-equipped GT is rocking a Black Finish Vortech V-7 JT Competition Kit, in addition to a plethora of other mods from Steeda, UPR Products, LTH Exhaust, Cervinis, Baer Brakes, Weld Wheels, and more!
We noticed Kyle's (@kyle_rajcevic) S550 at a previous year's AM Show, and thought his Paxton NOVI 2200SL Supercharged S550 would be a great addition to our display at this year's show. The car is looking great, and we can't wait to see what he has in store next for the car.
Jeff's (@j3ffmill3r) Vortech V-7 YSi Supercharged Fox Body Mustang is a long-time favorite of ours, and it is no mystery as to why. The super clean LX looks the part of mean street machine inside and out, with modest exterior styling upgrades, coupled with an encyclopedia of Mustang performance parts under the hood and throughout the rest of the car. Recently down for even more upgrades, we were under the impression Jeff was not going to have his car finished in time for the event. However, he was able to button it back up just in time, and the awesome guys at American Muscle were able to accommodate us with the extra booth space to fit Jeff's car in so that everyone could enjoy it.
Bobby's (@bobbycap7) beautiful Magnetic Grey 5.0 took home the trophy for Best In Class 2010-2014 for the 2nd year in a row. The car is set up nicely, sitting low on Race Star Wheels, and showing off the polished Vortech V-7 JT-Trim Supercharger System under the hood with paint matched inlet and radiator shroud. Congrats Bobby!
Rey (@driftamerica) definitely knows how to get our attention, adding the reflective Vortech Superchargers logo to his black finish Vortech V-3 Si Supercharger and painting his air inlet and engine cover bright red.
Don (@donsanocki) has by far one of the cleanest 3V engine bays we have ever seen. All the paint matched and airbrushed parts, coupled with the Black Finish Vortech V-3 Si Charge Cooled Supercharging System just makes for an undeniably great looking package resting under that Cervinis Ram Air hood.
Will (@mustang_officer) had his Vortech V-3 Si-Trim Supercharged S550 at the event on display in the Raxiom Lighting booth. The car was looking sweet, and we also liked the roof wrap as well.
You've probably seen Mike's (@project_ruby_coupe) Fox Body on the cover of the April 2019 issue of Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords, so seeing it at the show was pretty cool for a lot of Mustang fans. A polished finish Vortech V-1 Ti-Trim Supercharger provides the 302 engine the extra atmosphere, and the rest of the car is tricked out everywhere front to back.
We don't know who's Magnetic Grey Shelby GT350 this is, but we certainly love the blue powdercoated blower, discharge ducting, and accents on this beauty! It really looks fantastic!
We have had this green monster on display in our booth before at a few events, but now with its new owner Brian (@gunns5683) it is great to see that not only is he taking immaculate care of this 2015 V-7 JT-Trim Supercharged S550 Mustang, but also bringing it to events for other people to enjoy as well. The car also took home a "Top In Class 2015+" Award from the event as well. Congrats Brian!
You may not see a whole lot of show-worthy pushrod SN95 Mustangs around anymore, but especially not ones that are as nice as Ryan's (@prokiller9). The 1994 GT is nicely modified and rocking a satin finish Vortech V-2 Si-Trim Supercharger under the hood.
Brian (@pokemasterbs5.0) tells us he has kept himself extremely busy modifying his Paxton NOVI 2200SL Supercharged 5.0 as well as helping his friends modify theirs. That is one of the great things about the Mustang community...there are always people willing to help out when it is time for some garage time upgrades!
It doesn't get much more rare than 1-of-1, and Chip Foose's "World's Hottest Mustang" is just that. Created as the grand prize in a giveaway contest by BF Goodrich Tires, this 2005 GT produced 462 HP courtesy of its Vortech V-2 Si Supercharged and Maxflow Air-to-Water Charge Cooled 4.6L 3V engine.
Calvin (@sonicbluecoyote) has probably the single cleanest looking 2001 Bullitt on the planet, and many of our favorite parts of this car can be found under the hood. The Paxton NOVI 2000 Supercharger is custom color-matched to the car, and pretty much everything else is either painted, cleared, smoothed, or modified in some way to make it look that much better and put a huge smile on our face every time we see it.
Tev's (@tevisawesome) bagged & boosted 2017 S550 was looking great sitting low on Weld Wheels and showing off that polished finish Paxton NOVI 2200SL Supercharger System under the hood. The matching Grabber Blue hardware on the aftermarket intake manifold is such a nice touch!
There definitely seemed to be a recurring theme of finding amazing Red Vortech Supercharged Fox Bodys all over the show. John's Electric Red LX featured a Vortech V-2 Ti Supercharger with a custom air-to-air charge cooler.
Justin's Canary Yellow 1994 GT is not the same as it was when it rolled off the assembly line. It's Vortech V-1 Supercharged 351W powerplant is bringing the output up to over 600rwhp!
This White S197 3V was looking extra clean and definitely deserves some recognition. The polished NOVI 2200 System with air-to-air charge cooler, 3D Carbon body kit, and other aftermarket accessories make for a nicely outfitted 3V GT.
Andrew (@mustangandy93) has a fantastically clean engine compartment in his 1993 Fox Body Mustang LX.
Trust us when we say that these pictures do not do justice to the paint on Joe's 1995 Mustang GT. The paint was gorgeous and deep, and it was awesome to see that the car was also Supercharged with a Vortech V-3 Si as well, this one in Satin Finish.
This Black 2V New Edge had a Vortech V-2 Supercharger with custom air-to-air charge cooler setup under the hood.
This Black 3V has a polished finish Paxton NOVI 2200SL with air-to-air charge cooler, Shelby Razor Wheels, and a few other nice add-ons.

Who doesn't love a nice Competition Orange S550? This one is rolling on Ford Performance Pack Wheels and has a satin finish Paxton NOVI 2200SL Supercharging System with air-to-air charge cooler under the hood.

You don't tend to see a whole lot of boosted S550 Convertibles, so seeing this Magnetic Grey car at the event with a Black Finish Paxton NOVI 2200SL System with Air-to-Air Charge Cooler was really cool. We bet the car is a fun cruiser!
This Vortech V-3 Si-Trim Supercharged Coyote was the very last car all the way at the far end of one of the rows in the grassy area of the show.
