Thumbs down SCC's Vortech supercharged SVT

anybody got the new sport compact car mag? they have a two door svt w/220 whp coming out of a vortech s/c and they only laid down 14.9 in 1/4 mile. does this seem weak to anyone else? i see guys on here (and i do belive most of them) running that with 1200 bucks worth of bolt ons... somethings not right here! they do have 18 inch rims, which would slow you down a little, but come on! anyone have a jackson racing s/c to through out a comparo? how about you turbo guys in the same hp range? FORD POWER!!!

I dont believe those numbers at all, there is no way they are running that low. id see 13.9 but even that is cutting it a lil high.

Yeah I read it at Borders. I was wondering the same thing with 220whp I would expect higher #'s.

Moving to ”Forced Induction Chat”...

does this seem weak to anyone else?
Well...look at the source of those numbers...meaning, SCC.
You think they'd want a fOCUS to show up a Civic?

SCC doesn't usually doesn't give good reviews or post true#'s for domestics unless they are a type of car that your typical ricers would use ****COUGH neon/srt's COUGH****


now I am not trying to start anything here ok......so please don't take this as me saying all neons/srt's are ricers...

I have the magazine and thugh that that was a total joke, athough besides the 18" wheels there was also alot of stereo equipmnt and stuff throughout the car that would add weight but 220 hp and 14.9 seems really weak. I'm puttig on my JRSC this weekend and running about 10bs of boost should be well into the 14's!!

Why would you expect alot better numbers? It's got 10 to 20 more hp than the JRSC does out of the box. And the JRSC SVT's are doing about that.
And yes that car has alot of extra stuff on it as well. But 220whp is not alot. You can't just look at hp, look at torque to and Centrifugal torque curves are not impressive.
Plus this car has street tires. I've seen the car, it looks nice, it's got the prototype Vortech, but it's nothing spectacular. Get my friends vortech out there, and I'm sure he'll do low 14's possibly 13's.


But no way is that Vortech car ever going to see 13's with that power. Maybe mid 14s.

Thatsa true I've seen the torque/hp curve on the vortech and its nasty, no power or torque until 5200 rpm.

high 14's are doable with a tune and a few bolt-ons...I have to take mine to the track yet, but i'm anticipating low 15's high 14's, depending on my skill. 220 hp on an SVT should be doing a whole lot better than a 14.9. Bone stock SVT times are mid 15's

Bone stock SVT's probably weight about 2800 lbs. This car probably ways a good 200+ lbs more than stock.
