When TorqStorm’s supercharger exerts itself, expect a boost range that extends from 1,800 to 6,500rpm, thanks to the design of the compressor wheel.
Yet, to the majority of Slant Six owners, slightly less gusto—5,000 to 5,500rpm—is probably all that’s required. But in horsepower increases they seek an additional 100 to 150hp, which is around an 85 percent gain over the stock engine’s power output, and easily within the scope of this new supercharger kit.
The kit comes with a robust billet aluminum gearbox housing and cover. Within the casing, straight-cut tool steel gears are lubricated by an independent oiling system, and a stout three-quarter-inch thick mounting bracket secures the supercharger to the engine.
TorqStorm’s newly designed blow-through carburetor hat is also included as well as an automatic belt tensioner, an 8in diameter crankshaft pulley, a 52mm vacuum-controlled blow-off valve, and related plumbing and mounting hardware.
Conveniently, the V-band clamp on the compressor cover allows the supercharger outlet port to be rotated for easy routing of boosted air to the hat or intercooler.
Visually compact and well-proportioned, the system works with the regular intake manifold and exhaust or header upgrades. Further, the kit accommodates the original style water pump and alternator and is covered by the manufacturer’s familiar limited life-time warranty.
Prices for this new TorqStorm supercharger kits start at $2,800.
