VF550 R8 V8
VF-Engineering R&D facility in Anaheim, California created and track tested this bolt on roots style supercharger system adding 130hp and 120lbs of torque to the V8 R8. Available for worldwide models worldwide, this system uses the Eaton TVS1900 4-lobe roots supercharger with an air/water aftercooling system. Packing a lag-free instant punch of torque from 5psi of boost at 1500rpm, the air charge progressively climbs to 7.5psi at redline.
Using state of the art technology and production processes, VF-Engineering have created a system that integrates with the V8 engine effectively and produces a proven result which has been adopted and is installed in the primary and aftermarket.
Engine calibration is programmed with an ECU OBD2 port electronic flash/Direct flash and was designed by VF/Hex Tuning maintaining the Bosch safety functions and using the factory engine controls to re-calibrate for an enhanced combustion cycle. Extensive tuning of the camshaft timing mapping, optimizes air charging of the combustion cylinders.
Designed as a reversible and simple upgrade this product is targeted at the daily driver /enthusiast not looking to change the character of the R8.
