TorqStorm has introduced two new centrifugal supercharger kits for GM LS transplant engines that have become popular fitments in a wide range of older cars and trucks.
The twin kit supports 1,000-plus horsepower while the single sustains 700 plus. Both can be adapted for use with electronic fuel injection or carburetion.
But this is only the start. Though the new designs are aimed at LS-powered hot rods, the game-changer for TorqStorm has been an increased attention to greater completeness. Whether supplied as twin or single, the kits include a Sanden air conditioning compressor, Turn One power steering pump, and Powermaster alternator—the first such integrated kits furnished in the company’s history. Indeed, to the best of our knowledge, the first by any supercharger manufacturer to integrate belt-driven components.
In addition, TorqStorm provides two serpentine belts, an eight-rib to drive the supercharger and a six-rib to impel the accessories; all necessary pulleys, including a tool steel hub for the crank pulley; two self-adjusting tensioners, a blow-off valve; an air filter plus all the necessary mounting brackets and fasteners. To complete the twin kit, a second supercharger, blow-off valve and air filter is added.
Available in natural alloy or black anodized or with a micro-polished finish, both supercharger kits go on sale in September. Base prices, which include the above-mentioned accessories, are stated at $6,950 and $4,950 for twin and single respectively.
