Kenny,
Welcome to FTE!
I split your post out of the "more power" thread. That thread is for specific suggestions and advice on power improvements.

Hope we can help you! (I don't know a source for superchargers for the 4.2)

There's a Vortec Supercharger for our 4.2's, but I can't remember where to get it. Garrett knows where to get it because he owns one. They are a pain in the butt from the start, but once all the bugs are worked out, they seem to work really nice. Wait for Garrett's (aka: Horizon Huskies) reply.

I got curious and I emailed Crash at Trixters racing, and he said they cancelled the supercharger project because they have a turbo that is much easier.

I have his number, email me if you're interested.

Make sure you get the full details first.

This turbo idea has been going on for 1-2 months, and still no prototype. Thats right, its just on paper. The company he is working with is STS. As of today, there is NO such thing as a turbo kit for the 4.2L.

The reason the Vortech was cancelled, was because of me. I showed Crash/Derek how HARD this kit was to install. The manufacturer did a horrible job of sending out the kit. It took me 5 working DAYS to get it installed. So much for a bolt-on kit.

I dont want this to discourage anyone though. As I have already stated, EVERY bug has been worked out. The belt is run correctly, the MAF is located in the stock position, and it is a PROVEN kit. If you can show me where this turbo kit is proven, I will retract this statement.

By the way, the supercharger project they had was an ATI procharger kit, which was abandoned. The Vortech was discontinued, once again, because of my situation.

Thanks for the info and interest guys.

Garrett

Yesterday, I got an email from Crash at trixters racing saying they already have a running prototype with the turbo from STS.

I can tell you right now a guy named Brad was the prototype for Crash.

Austin, aka Streetcruiser, who is a good friend of mine, built his OWN remote setup and is not affiliated with STS in any way. So unless they built one in 3 days, I appologize.

This is exactly what I got in an email:

We have a turbocharger setup for you. We abandoned the Procharger project, as this thing is too simple. We already have a prototype up and running!

Call me for details, once you review this site... www.ststurbo.com

Derek (AKA Crash!)
