VF500 Spyker

VF-Engineering chose to supercharge the Spyker C8 to improve throttle response and mid-to-top end power with a Eaton TVS 1900 roots supercharger. Maintaining the the original Spyker quality, smoothness and reliability were the key factors in the VF design. VF have harnessed reliability of Eaton superchargers with their 15 years of supercharging experience and worldwide OEM supply contacts to create the ultimate supercharger system for the ultimate driver’s car. The Spyker powerplant is a 4.2 liter V8 motor, as found in the Audi chassis such as the S8 and S4 and VF have many years of experience supercharging this engine as well as owning in house test cars. Track testing each product has become a standard practice for VF’s product design and testing process prior to product release. Each Spyker supercharger system is individually tested and calibrated to the specific car it is fitted to.

All key components are 100% made in California. This system has been fully road tested, documented on multiple race tracks and dyno tuned on the Mustang MD500AWD. The Spyker C8 supercharger kit is setup at 6.0 psi and creates as much, if not more power than similar products running greater levels of boost.

VF chose to mount the Eaton TVS 1900 supercharger with an in-house CNC machined billet aluminum housing containing an air/water heat exchanger. Our approach to the supercharger development is quite unique when it comes to design and production style. With a higher bar set for this project, our engineers chose to use the latest supercharger from Eaton Corporation: Twin Vortices Series TVS 1900. It is a 6th generation 4 lobe roots supercharger that supercedes the older 3 lobe MP90 and MP112. With the ability to rev to higher bearing speeds for longer periods, the TVS 1900 unit can be operated at lower speeds than the older unit and create more boost due to its displacement and higher efficiency. The supercharger is mounted atop the motor and driven off an upgraded Goodyear serpentine belt system and heavy duty active belt tensioner.  The VF supercharger system remains fully OBD2 compliant and is supported by a 1 year unlimited mileage warranty on the product only.

"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?

"...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"
