Supercharged 997 C4S

Porsche 997 3.6 / 997S 3.8 Supercharger

The VF-Engineering designers set about designing the billet supercharger mounting bracket with CAD software creating solid models of parts to be CNC manufactured. The bracket was designed to utilize OEM bolt patterns and requires no alteration or relocation of any engine parts to be fitted. Made from 6061-T6 aircraft grade aluminum the bracket mounts to factory machined surface points on the aluminum engine block for a precision fit.

A V3 model Si-Trim Vortech Engineering supercharger unit was chosen after consultation with Vortech engineers and matching the engine’s volumetric efficiency with supercharger compressor maps. The V3 unit contains helical-cut gears for super quite performance – virtually silent with the engine compartment lid closed. The V3 supercharger has a 20psi and 1000cfm maximum capacity and is an over-engineered part for this Porsche application which is geared to produce a conservative 6psi in the engine’s intake manifold.

The fastidious design of the supercharger bracket, positions the belt driven supercharger to maintain use of the OEM spring loaded belt tensioner. The serpentine belt routing was designed to maintain the correct rotation of all the accessories and maintain optimal pulley wrap for maximum friction.

The Vortech air to water intercooler (charge cooler) was integrated into the tight fit engine bay as means of reducing charged induction (boost) temperatures. Lower charge temperatures promote engine safety by reducing knock and improving the quality of the combustion cycle. Air charge (boost) from the supercharger is directed through the chargecooler core before entering the throttle body. The cooler core contains isolated channels circulating with water from a separate self contained system cooled by its own radiator. VF-Engineering integrated a Porsche OEM front radiator and front bumper vents into the kit. Water is circulated by means of an added OEM Bosch water pump through OEM Good Year water lines. Intake air temperatures in the manifold were measured to be approx 140 deg F even with ‘spirited’ driving at 118 deg F ambient temperatures in Arizona desert conditions mid-Summer. This dramatic drop in charge temperature helps the 997 create consistent power. For added safety the chargecooler is designed to perform continuously whilst the ignition is on.

With all major components in place, VF-Engineering set about shaping the air ducts from the filter to the throttle body. The intake pipe is specially tuned for its air flow characteristics and pressure relief system. Production pipes are manufactured from a lightweight molded high temperature polymer. The thermal insulating properties of the plastic pipes prevent heat transfer into the cooled charged air traveling inside them.

Engine management software was by written by VF with extensive testing performed on independent test cars. Multiple factors such as charge air temperatures, ignition timing, fuel trims, maps and injector performance were taken into account. The Carrera 2 and 4 test vehicles were extensively dynoed on the VF 4WD Mustang and monitored for wide band air fuel ratios at load levels often greater than would be experienced on the road. The results are an increase of 150 horsepower and 90 ft.lbs of fully usable torque.

Software is programmed into your ECU using the “Hex-Flash” programming cable. You can program your ECU yourself through the OBD2 connector on your dashboard with software sent to you by email. This tool also allows you to read and clear ecu codes.

Vallie Automotive - Z3 VF supercharged

"I must say that you have had a great support level and response times! It is no wonder that you popular ! And of course, we will do our very best in BMW market to have some more supercharges to the cars!"

Schmeidmann, Finland Ltd - Z3 2.8 VF supercharged

"I'm very happy with the new software. The car feels much more alive and more responsive. I wish it had come this way."

Mike - Hex Flash tuned Lamborghini Aventador LP700, USA

"The SC...delivers power when I need it whether its during a lane change on the freeway, torquing out of an uphill canyon turn or opening it up on an empty road; press the pedal and it gives instant gratification...I suppose the real question is -Would I do it again? Oh yeah!!...the [supercharger] gives me what I want, strong linear pull and a tremendous amounts of fun - What more could I ask for?"

Michael L. - VF760 Gallardo Superleggera, USA

"I absolutely love my VF650 kit, and the customer service received from VF is top notch!"

Mark - VF650 E92 M3, New Jersey USA

"The car runs beautifully...[and] now has a very obvious additional surge of power and is ultra smooth. Thank you very much for all of your help."

Matt Z. - E39 540i VF supercharged, New York USA

"My kit has been awesome so far. It is the best fitting and performing kit that I have seen on E46 M3's. I have no complaints whatsoever."

Amr A. - VF480 E46 M3, Arizona USA

"...last year I had a VF620 installed and, as one would expect, noticed a huge increase in power...I'm not kidding when I say the car is now scary to drive...I want to give a big thumps up and thanks to [the customer service team at VF]. They were all very helpful and always followed up and answered questions..."

Tarek - VF650 E92 M3, Texas USA

"I have to tell you, after installing the kit myself (I’m not an auto mechanic and I took my sweet time, since the car is not my daily driver) I couldn’t be any happier. I also like the way I was able to install the flash programming to my ECU myself at home with the Hex Flash programming kit loaded on my laptop. It was money well spent..."

Frank B. - VF350 E36 M3, USA

"Hi I've recieved the s/c I'm very impressed with the kit. Me and my friend have been looking it over in prep for fitting on Saturday and my mate was wondering if you do one for his car he also has an e46... Thanks again, Craig"
