I got bored last night and emailed them asking if they were, had or were going to make a charger for us and well........read

Me: Hello i was just writing to tell you the interest there is for a centrifical
supercharger for the rsx type-s. I would love it if you guys could release
one for us as there is not one out yet, ony 2 roots style chargers that
turbo kits run all over. I feel that if you all considered a kit for us it
would be very beneficial as the rsx is one of the most popular and highly
modded cars out today, not to mention tons of folks from clubrsx.com have
wanted one. Another obsticle that you might have trouble with is our ecu. If
you thought that it was too much trouble to break or try to manage then you
thought wrong because a great company has already solved this dillema,
Hondata (Hondata.com). they offer us great tunability as you could work with
them to set us a base map or even a reflash to setup the car. Anyway any
input from you guys would be great as to if it is possible, if it is in the
process, or even why you would not. Thanks foryour time and as a rep. from
the rsx community i look forward to your reply, thanks, Drew S.


Them: Vortech was very interested in developing a kit for the K-series engines. Our intent was to start with the RSX type S, and move on to the base RSX and Civic Si. However, due to packaging and fitment issues we have since abandoned the idea. In order for us to fit one of our centrifugal
superchargers to the engine and chassis combination, to many factory parts
would of had to been relocated. This would have increased the cost the kit
dramatically which would limit our ability to offer a competitively price
supercharger kit


So i didn't know if this info was out or not but i thought i'd give it a shot .....................................................................................................and if anyone wants to help me out on my rep points fell free :wavey:

The one they made for the 99-00 SI was beautiful :drool:, gave them +100 WHP and a damn nice air to water aftercooler that you could put ice into for the track.

I think that the design of the VSC is not good for motors that are low on TQ. I drove a 00 si with the vortech kit and it was mild in the lower RPM and crazy after about 6K.

Good info though for those that were interested.
