SHO Source Supercharger Kit 89-95



SHO Source Supercharger Kit 89-95

We are pleased to offer a new easier version of the MTX Supercharger kit for the First and Second Generation SHO.  If you already have your battery relocated and are running the required larger injectors and fuel system, you could easily install this kit as a bolt on to your car in a single day and gain 100hp or more. 

The full kit has new features not seen in past SHO Supercharger kits.  For example, the V-3 Vortech supercharger has self contained lubrication.  This is a huge improvement over past kits, because it means you no longer need to tap into the engine oil pressure supply.  The SHO engine needs all the lubrication it can get, so it is a big deal to not split off lubrication to the superccharger.  This also means it is faster and easier to install, since you don't have to run oil pressure lines or tap the oil pan for a drain return.  Additionally, we added an ambient air sensor port after the MAF location to increase the air fuel accuracy of the computer.  The air pipes are all professionally mandrel bent, welded and powdercoated black for excellent quality and durability.  


Option 1: The Basic Kit is just the hard to get custom parts, which includes:

  • The bracket
  • Supercharger mounting spacers
  • Both pressure pipes.  


Option 2: The Complete Kit includes:

  • The bracket
  • Supercharger mounting spacers
  • Both pressure pipes
  • Vortech V-3 supercharger
  • Vortech Maxflow Race Bypass Valve
  • Silicone supercharger piping couplings (4)
  • Clamps (8)
  • Lincoln 80mm MAF
  • O-ringed MAF adapter flange
  • 3.6" supercharger pulley
  • Idler pulley
  • 6 rib belt
  • Aluminum catch can.  
  • Compact K&N air cleaner (not pictured) or larger Airaid filter (pictured, but requires modification to the fender passage)
  • The kit DOES NOT INCLUDE a larger fuel pump, larger injectors, TwEECer (or other programmer), battery relocation kit, or a wide band O2 for monitoring.  We do sell all those items separately, so please let us know if you need help building your order.  

With a 3.6" pulley, the kit will produce around 6-9psi of boost, which should add around 100hp.  Every installation is slightly different, so we do not guarantee the power increase.  With this setup and a conservative tune, you may be able to run on pump premium gas, but you need to carefully watch for pre-detonation.  If you have E85 available, and you change your pump and injectors to support it, you can make even more power with less risk of pre-detonation.  We sized the kit conservatively to try to keep it on pump premium gas and also not damage the transmission.  With a smaller pulley, this supercharger is capable of much higher boost levels, but at that point, you may want to consider our heavy duty gearsets in your transmission.  


We are ready to help you customize your kit to match your needs and desires, so please let us know if you want more or less in your personal supercharger kit.  We are still revising this ad and kit, so please let us know if there is more information we should add or if you want us to offer more or less in the kit. 

Tech Notes

Vortech does not recommend an intercooler for boost levels under 9psi.  If you plan to boost over 9psi, there are intercooler options available (not included) that will integrate with this kit.  Please ask for more information.

The supercharger must also run with the following tuning and fuel upgrades (sold separately):

  • TwEECer (or other tuner) for tuning
  • 48lb (or larger if E85) Injectors
  • 255 LPH Fuel Pump
  • SHO Nut Adjustable Fuel Pressure Regulator
  • Copper spark plugs (2 stages colder)
It goes without saying, you are adding significant power to your drivetrain.  This kit should only be used with the factory crank pulley (harmonic damper).  We do not recommend a solid crank pulley with this kit (even ours).  Although we intentionally limited the horspower and torque to help reduce the possibility you will damage the engine, transmission, car or even yourself, we are not responsible for any damage caused by the use of these parts.

This kit is not CARB approved.  It is sold for off road use only to ensure compliance with laws and regulations.
