We always enjoy seeing our friends at Vortech when SEMA time rolls around, and this year was no exception. Highlighted in this year’s booth were two project cars – the 2012 Dodge Challenger Rockstar Edition, and the DSO Eyewear 2011 Camaro SS. We also got an up-close look at their new MaxFlow FPB (Fuel Pump Booster) in both Coyote Mustang and universal versions.
The Rockstar Dodge features a high output Vortech centrifugal supercharger with an air-to-water intercooler, carbon fiber exterior pieces from Seibon, 20-inch DPE wheels wrapped in Toyo rubber, and a racing coilover suspension from KW.
The DSO Camaro, on the other hand, utilizes a Lysholm/Vortech twin screw compressor to boost the stock LS3 powerplant, with exterior upgrades from 3d Carbon, rolling stock provided by MHT Luxury Wheels and Pirelli Tires, Hotchkiss and Pfadt suspension and chassis components, and a long list of other custom touches.
The MaxFlow FPB is a way to increase the capacity of a stock in-tank fuel pump under high demand conditions, eliminating the need for a high capacity external pump for many boosted applications. The FPB can increase capacity by as much as 50%, and utilizes an advanced microprocessor to control output voltage to the pump.
Part Number 5A102-029 is specifically designed for the 2011-2012 Mustang GT (but can also be used as a universal booster) and has a fully programmable output curve, adjusted via a USB connection.
Internal solid state relay to prevent key-off current draw
Pass through circuitry allows normal system voltage under non-boost conditions
Fully programmable voltage and current protection
Part number 5A002-030 is designed as a universal fuel pump booster and features a fixed voltage output configuration with on-board offset adjustability with a simplified design, and is available with or without universal installation hardware, a wiring harness, and relay.
