    Who has a supercharged V10?

    I plan on twin turboing my V10 in the next couple of years but I'm not going to go half ass, I'm going to do a build. We all know that can cost 50-200k, depending on how crazy you go.

    I know there are superchargers out there for 20k (yes, yes, not the same animal) but it might hold me over until I shell out the big bucks for a full build.

    Who has a supercharged V10?
    Do you drive it hard?
    Are there any V10s out there that have failed with a supercharger?

    Thanks!

    Re: Who has a supercharged V10?

    I have a VF Engineering supercharged V10. I am very happy with this setup and chose it over the twin turbo setup. The power delivery is very smooth and linear. The car can be driven everyday, very normally. However, when you plant your foot the car is a beast. I am making about 800 crank hp and that is plenty for me. I loose traction in 1st, 2nd and third if conditions are not ideal like outside temperature or tire temp.

    I highly recommend this setup and based on what other R8 and Lambo v10 owners have said online, this is a very reliable way to make useable power.

    What he said. I drove it really hard at COTA a couple of weeks ago, and at 165+ mph, it wasn't even breathing hard. No problems or issues whatsoever. VF-Engineering makes this thing run like a Swiss watch. And cooler than a stock V10 on the track. I'm very proud of it, and lucky to own it.

    The new clutch is working great. I appreciate all the help you provided and the excellent advice.

    I'm happy with my VF Engineering supercharger. The programming is glitch free (no error codes). Docile when driving with my wife on board. 3.15 seconds to 60 when I get on it. I have no experience with twin turbo so I can't compare them.

    Install takes about 32 hours give or take. So budget $4k and you should be good.

    I went with the stock clutch, not the Kevlar.
