Default Is there a market for already ready now ported blowers.

Looking at maybe stocking a few kong ported ls9 blowers. Not sure if there’s really a market anymore for these, being that everyone has already modded a lot of them. It would be something along the lines of paying a deposit, or core fee. Then once yours is received your fee would be refunded. You would only be paying the porting cost. All blowers and snouts would be ported by kong performance. Instead of having your car down 3-6 weeks you’d have one ready to go in hand in 3-5 days. Let me know you guys think of this program.

I think a core exchange program is definitely something there is demand for.

From the Kong Performance website...

FAST TURN AROUND! We typically operate at a 3-7 business day turn around time on porting so we can get your supercharger back to you as quickly as possible!

I truly wish it was that fast, but first you have to understand, what it takes. Maybe a day to take it off, and if you’re on it you package it and send it out the same day. It took mine about 2-3 weeks to come back while my car was down for an extra week till I could work on it. If I had a blower I the first day, I would have had it back on the road the same day.

Will the ported blower be ready to run (rotors, bearings, seals, etc.)? Or does the guts of my blower get transferred into the ported blower casing?

With the new additions on his services, I think this is a great idea for those still looking to get it done.

Greg is getting busy, and for all the right reasons. The man delivers.

i wasn’t the least bit disappointed, I waited 4 weeks for mine to come home, but this was during the C7 ZR1 blower porting period.

It would be a bolt on ready to go. I had some blowers lined up. But sold while I was thinking about it. He goes through every blower before sending them out, to make sure they are in good working condition. So as long as the one you send in is good, you’d receive the core charge back.
