From the industry leader in centrifugal supercharger technology, Vortech is proud to offer an exchange program for our loyal customers who want to take advantage of the Vortech V-2 or self-lubricated V-3 Si or SCi supercharger technology at a significantly lower price than retail.The V-2/V-3 superchargers feature an improved impeller seal design with reduced friction characteristics, and the compressor housing utilizes an o-ring seal for improved sealing. The internal drive system features state of the art, computer designed gears with an optimized helical profile which allows for quiet operation when compared to the competition, and a 3.60:1 internal step-up ratio.If you own a standard duty Vortech V-1 A-Trim, B-Trim, S-Trim, or SC-Trim supercharger, then this program is designed just for you. The V-2/V-3 Si and SCi superchargers offer the same legendary performance and reliability you are accustomed to with the V-1 series, without the gear noise. The V-2 supercharger is a direct bolt-on replacement supercharger for the aforementioned V-1 series. When a customer returns a qualifying V-1 series supercharger to Vortech, they will receive a credit for the supercharger (subject to the overall condition of the unit) that can be used to offset the cost of a new V-2/V-3 supercharger purchase. The new supercharger being purchased must be of the same configuration of the supercharger being returned (i.e. curved/straight discharge, cw/ccw rotation). It is important to realize that the V-2/V-3 Si or SCi supercharger may or not be the proper size compressor for your application. One size does not fit all, as our competitors would lead you to believe. If you have any questions or concerns, please call our Technical Department for assistance. In addition, a Vortech Standard Bypass Valve or Maxflow Race Bypass/Blowoff valve (depending on your application) must be utilized to prevent compressor surge. At this time, only the above mentioned superchargers are to be included in the program. We reserve the right to modify the program at any time without prior notice.
When exchanging a supercharger, the owner of the supercharger must contact the Vortech Service Department and receive a Return Authorization Number prior to shipping the unit. Vortech Authorized Dealers and Distributors are allowed to handle exchanges for their customers (subject to Vortech approval), but are required to furnish their customers name, address, and phone number when receiving a Return Authorization Number. Once the supercharger is received at Vortech it will be given a cursory visual inspection and the owner will be contacted as to the amount of credit he/she will be issued toward their new supercharger purchase. There are currently two categories that determine the overall condition of the supercharger and the credit to be issued. They are described as Class "A" and Class "B" exchanges and are explained in detail in the following text.
In order to qualify as a Class "A" exchange, the supercharger must be a qualifying V-1 standard duty A-Trim, B-Trim, S-Trim, or SC-Trim supercharger, in good running and working condition, internally and externally. The supercharger will receive a cursory visual inspection and spun to check its overall condition. All major components of the supercharger must be in good working and visual condition. Major components are defined as the following: gearcase, gearcase cover, drive gear, input shaft, impeller shaft, compressor housing and impeller. If the supercharger qualifies as a Class "A" exchange, the owner of the supercharger will receive an in-house credit, which will be applied toward the purchase of a new V-2/V-3 Si or SCi supercharger. The credit will be in the amount of $1,000.00, which will be deducted from the retail price of the new supercharger being purchased.
In order to qualify as a Class "B" exchange, the supercharger must be a qualifying V-1 standard duty A-Trim, B-Trim, S-Trim, or SC-Trim supercharger, returned assembled, with all of its major components, as listed previously and may or may not be in good working and/or visual condition. The supercharger will receive a cursory visual inspection and spun to check its overall condition. Generally, a supercharger being returned that has failed to some degree will be classified as a Class "B" exchange. Examples include, but are not limited to, the unit does not spin, the unit is hard to spin or exhibits a low pitched growling sound when spun, the impeller has contacted the compressor housing, etc. If the supercharger qualifies as a Class "B" exchange, the owner of the supercharger will receive an in-house credit, which will be applied toward the purchase of a new V-2/V-3 Si or SCi supercharger only. The credit will be in the amount of $500.00, which will be deducted from the retail price of the new supercharger being purchased. The credit must be used within ten business days.
Any supercharger returned which is disassembled or missing major components, as previously defined, will not receive any credit and will not be considered for this program.
The owner of the supercharger will be responsible for the net cost of the supercharger (retail price minus the credit) as well as all return shipping costs. Shipping and payment for the supercharger are subject to the current Vortech policies in effect at the time of purchase.
The supercharger returned to Vortech for this program will become the property of Vortech once a new supercharger has been shipped. The owner of the returned supercharger gives up all rights and foreseeable responsibilities associated with the returned supercharger unit.
All V-2/V-3 Si and SCi superchargers come with a standard One Year Limited Warranty. The owner of the new supercharger should review the Supercharger Owner's Manual enclosed with the supercharger prior to installation of the unit. If you have any questions or concerns regarding supercharger compressor sizing, mounting, impeller speeds, bypass/blowoff valves, etc., please contact Vortech directly or your local Vortech Authorized Dealer/Distributor for technical assistance.
Thank you for choosing Vortech Engineering for your supercharging needs.
