Default ECS introduces Vortech/Paxton's new F1X/F2 KILLER! Known as the V15 & the V17-2500 HP

These head units were specifically designed to fit in the Corvette platform, Paxton asked us for a set of brackets during the design process so it is a tailored fit.

THEY BOLT RIGHT INTO OUR EXISTING BRACKETS!

New All Billet gearcase from Vortech Superchargers.

New internal designed gear set to handle the stress loads of up to 2500HP.

Able to bolt into existing V-1, V-2, V-3, V-7 / 1200, 1500, 2200HD, 2200R/X bracket designs.

Specifically targeting the LS Corvette applications and Hot Rod Market.

Compressor stages from 1000HP- 2500+HP.

Designed as the F1X/F2 Killer

V-17 - 1500-2500HP

V-15 Ė 1000-1500HP

Basically these are using the same billet gear case, the V-15 has a slightly smaller mounting point for the valute to bolt onto, while the V-17 can handle a larger valute and impeller. Both are able to handle the power that they can produce.

I will personally be doing a ton of track R&D come spring time on these from the ground up so you have all the info you need to spec your desired build without guess work. You will not be required to figure out how far you can go on each belt size like some manufacturers do, we will let you know our experience on how far each unit can go on a ten rib rib belt HP wise, and what will will be needed to take you to those upper numbers as well.

This is something that I am personally very excited to test out, Paxton typically rates their HP numbers a little lower than they actually produce so we'll see how far we can go on the V-15 then start with the V-17. I'm even pulling my personal vehicle out of hibernation to get some solid results from more of a purpose built vehicle so they are more cut and dry.

If the results are not as expected, which I doubt highly, I'll post that too. However from everything I have seen flow chart wise, and the craftsmanship of the blower itself, I'm very confident that as far as the big boy blowers go in Corvettes....

Move over Procharger, there's a new sheriff in town!!

wonder if they upped the step up ratio in the case, that is one nice thing about the f series is you can run a big *** pulley on them and make a lot of power. Granted when I had a 2200X I made 11xx rwhp on a 2.75 w/ your bracket, griptec pulley w/ no slip but would be nice to see them do a more aggressive ratio in the case.

Would you say a V15 would be a better choice over the existing 2200R? And if you need a car for high DA testing on a 416 I'd be happy to help.

I have posted about this a lot years ago when we switched from Procharger head units to Paxton. What I found is that it worked opposite of what I thought would happen. What you just posted is exactly what I expected also, it makes perfect sense. What I actually found was that the higher step up ratio was kind of like taking off in a higher gear. Just like how you would test a slipping clutch by going to a higher gear and applying power to make it slip, is the same way the belt would start to slip. I know that example is not exactly apples to apples, but it's the best way I know to apply what's happening.

The V-15 is the step above the 2200R/X. The 2200 series blower usually runs out around 1100 RWHP, where as the V-15 starts at 1000 and runs out around 1500 according to Paxton/Vortech. Although I have found that what they rate there max HP at of each blower is about what we can make at the wheels, so they are a little under rated IMO.

I will post the pricing and step up ratio as soon as I have it myself.

Here is a comparison of the V-17 to a NOVI 1500.

3.45 step up ratio, same as the 2200R/X.

What about impeller speed? 65k?

We had no idea if the project was going to be carried out at all let alone when, sorry about that! It will still be a little while until they are available too. I'm sure we can work something out for you though if you would the V-15, call us.

Doug, so are these units just bigger than the current lineup or are the wheels a better and more efficient design? It would be great if it was the latter as it's got to help with packaging!

I'm also guessing the are straigh cut gears only?

I would assume so, but often the first run is polished from them.

I was told they would be in production at the beginning of the second quarter.
