Before beginning this installation, please read through this entire instruction booklet and the Street Supercharger System Owner's Manual which includes the
Automotive Limited Warranties Program and the Warranty Registration form.
Vortech supercharger systems are performance improving devices. In most cases, increases in torque of 30-35% and horsepower of 35-45% can be expected with
the boost levels specified by Vortech Engineering. This product is intended for use on healthy, well maintained engines. Installation on a worn-out or damaged
engine is not recommended and may result in failure of the engine as well as the supercharger. Vortech Engineering is not responsible for engine damage.
Installation on new vehicles will not harm or adversely affect the break-in period so long as factory break-in procedures are followed.
For best performance and continued durability, please take note of the following key points:
1. Use only premium grade fuel 91 octane or higher (R+M/2).
2. The engine must have stock compression ratio.
3. If the engine has been modified in any way, check with Vortech prior to using this product.
4. Always listen for any sign of detonation (pinging) and discontinue hard use (no boost) until problem is resolved.
5. Perform an oil and filter change upon completion of this installation and prior to test driving your vehicle. Thereafter, always use a manufacture-rated, high
grade engine oil or a high quality synthetic, and change the oil and filter every 3,000 miles or less. Never attempt to extend the oil change interval beyond
3,000 miles, regardless of oil manufacturer's claims as potential damage to the supercharger may result.
6. Before beginning installation, replace all spark plugs that are older than 1 year or 30,000 miles with original heat range plugs as specified by the
manufacturer and reset timing to factory specifications (follow the procedures indicated within the factory repair manual and/or as indicated on the factory
underhood emissions tag). Do not use platinum spark plugs unless they are original equipment. Change spark plugs every at least 30,000 miles and spark
plug wires at least every 50,000 miles.

S. In the ProECU software menu bar (at the top of the window):
Select ‘Tools’, then > ‘Detect Vehicle’. A new window will appear
with ‘Program Engine ECU’ highlighted. Select [OK].
T. Select [Program ECU] in the following window. It will take a few
minutes for this process to complete. After programming the
ECU, follow the on-screen instructions to cycle the ignition ON,
OFF etc. It is important that this is done in sequence with the
appropriate time delays as directed.
U. The message ‘Programming Sequence completed’ should appear.
Select [Ok]. The re-flash step is now complete.
NOTE:
It is possible that you will come across an ECU version that
EcuTek has not seen. It will not be possible for you to program
this ECU until EcuTek has been supplied with certain information
about the specific ECU. The ‘Dump Details for EcuTek’ button
saves certain information from this ECU. The information is stored
in a file that will be saved into the ‘C:\EcuTek\RomDumps’ folder.
The name of the file will be displayed as it is saved.
This information should be sent to EcuTek using the Website
Form, together with a clear photograph of the ECU label and
details of the type of car (please include Model Year and Manual
or Auto gearbox) from which the ECU originates. EcuTek will then
supply an updated version of ProECU that will be capable of
programming the ECU. You will then need to send the new file
received from EcuTek over to Vortech with your Dongle ID and
License Key to have the revised calibration completed.
Please note that it is not something that can be done while-youwait. Turnaround time is likely to be 3 to 7 days for support of a
new ECU. It is therefore important for the tuner to check that the
ECU version is supported well before the car is scheduled to be
reprogrammed – this will avoid a panic situation for all parties
involved.
Please note that it is not possible to open ROM Dumps in ProECU
until the file has been emailed to EcuTek.

11. FINAL CHECK
A. If your vehicle has gone over 30,000 miles since its
last spark plug change, you will need to change the
spark plugs now before test driving the vehicle.
B. Check all fittings, nuts, bolts and clamps for
tightness. Pay particular attention to oil and fuel lines
around moving parts, sharp edges, and exhaust
system parts. Make sure all wires and lines are
properly secured with clamps or tie-wraps.
C. Check all fluid levels, making sure that your tank is
filled with 91 octane or higher fuel before
commencing test drive.
D. Start the engine and allow to idle a few minutes, then
shut off.
E. Recheck to be sure that no hoses, wires, etc. are near
exhaust headers or moving parts. Look also for any
signs of fluid leakage.
F. PLEASE TAKE SPECIAL NOTE: Operating the vehicle
without ALL of the subassemblies completely and
properly installed may cause FAILURE OF MAJOR
COMPONENTS.
G. Test drive the vehicle.
H. Always listen carefully for engine detonation.
Discontinue heavy throttle usage if detonation is
heard.
I. Read the STREET SUPERCHARGER SYSTEM
OWNER'S MANUAL AND RETURN THE WARRANTY
REGISTRATION FORM within thirty (30) days of
purchasing your supercharger system to qualify.
WARNING: Do not attempt to operate the vehicle
until all components are installed and all operations
are completed including the final check.
For internally lubricated V3 units only
This supercharger has been factory pre-filled with special
Vortech synthetic lubricant. Oil does not need to be added
to a brand new unit, however a fluid level check should be
performed.
Prior to operating the supercharger on the vehicle and after
installation onto the vehicle:
Remove the factory installed flat-head brass shipping plug
(not the dipstick) from the top of the supercharger case.
Replace the sealed shipping plug with the supplied vented
plug. Do not operate the supercharger without it. Check the
supercharger fluid level using the dipstick as follows:
Fluid level checking procedure:
1. Ensure that the .06” copper sealing washer
is located on the dipstick base.
2. Thread the clean dipstick into the unit until
it seats.
3. Once the dipstick has seated, remove the
dipstick from the unit. Fluid should register
in the crosshatched area on the dipstick.
4. DO NOT OVERFILL!!! Drain excess fluid from
the unit if it is above the maximum level on
the dipstick.
Check the fluid level using the dipstick at least every 2,500
miles.
Initial supercharger fluid change must be performed at 2,500
miles. The supercharger fluid must be changed every 7,500
miles maximum thereafter.
Drain the fluid, refill the unit with 4 oz. of Vortech V3
lubricating fluid, and then confirm proper oil level using the
dipstick. DO NOT OVERFILL!!!
WARNING: Use of any fluid other than the special
Vortech lubricant will void the warranty and may
cause component failure
