I have over 120,000 miles on my VF supercharger. The only thing I have ever done is replace the tensioner pulley (twice) and I replace the belt after every track day. Theses are super easy and inexpensive maintenance issues. Otherwise, it has been absolutely problem free. VF told me that I have more miles than even their test cars.
They used to download my engine data when I was getting it serviced at Champion Motorsports. When Mark, their Audi guy left, they've been primarily a Porsche tuner. Had some issues, and moved to Excel, the Lamborghini tuners in So. Florida. If you're thinking about getting one for your V8:
1) If you have an automatic, don't bother with a blower. All the things that suck about the auto transmission are worse when you supercharge it.
2) On the manual transmission, swap out the flywheel, pressure plate, clutch plate, and throw-out bearing for the components from the V10 manual. They drop right in without any modifications. The increased inertial mass makes it glassy smooth. Not that big of an expense, especially if you do it at the same time. You will be very glad that you did.
With the supercharger, it has more horsepower and torque than the V10, yet the entire set up weighs 95 lbs less.
Best decision I ever made with that vehicle! Currently at 152,000 miles.

Having the newest vf engineering supercharger installed on my 2012 v8 r8 this week. I will inquire about those v10 parts you mentioned. Thanks!
