V-4 Exchange Program
V-4 Supercharger Exchange Program
From the industry leader in centrifugal supercharger technology, Vortech is proud to announce an exchange program for our loyal customers should they want to step up to a V-4 J-Trim, X-Trim, XX-Trim, XXX-Trim or Z-Trim supercharger. Yet another first in the industry, only from Vortech. (Please note that the V-4 series supercharger's are about 30% larger than that of a V-1 and may require modification/fabrication of mounting brackets/plates as well as modifying the air intake/discharge ducting.) The program was designed to assist the owner of a V-1 S-Trim (heavy duty only), SC-Trim (heavy duty only), R-Trim, T-Trim, V-3 R-Trim or J-Trim, V-4 J-Trim, X-Trim or XX-Trim, V-7 Y-Trim or YS-Trim to purchase a V-4 J-Trim, X-Trim, XX-Trim, XXX-Trim or Z-Trim at a significantly lower price than retail. When a customer returns one of the aforementioned superchargers to Vortech, they will receive a credit for the supercharger (subject to the overall condition of the unit) that can be used only to offset the cost of a new V-4 J-Trim, X-Trim, XX-Trim, XXX-Trim or Z-Trim supercharger. It is important to realize that the V-4 J-Trim, X-Trim, XX-Trim, XXX-Trim or Z-Trim superchargers may or may not be the proper size compressor for your application. One size does not fit all, as our competitors would lead you to believe. If you have any doubts, please call our Technical Department for guidance. The V-4 series supercharger's are designed to be utilized on modified engines only, with racing in mind, and should be driven with a non-slipping (cog) belt design to achieve maximum performance. In addition, a Vortech Maxflow Mondo Bypass valve must be utilized to prevent compressor surge. The mounting brackets should be sufficiently rigid to minimize flex and/or vibration under racing conditions as well. Please refer to the Vortech Racing Owner's Manual for information on installation and operating parameters for years of trouble-free enjoyment. At this time, only the above mentioned superchargers are to be included in the program. We reserve the right to modify the program at any time without prior notice.
When exchanging a supercharger, the owner of the supercharger must contact the Service Department at Vortech and receive a Return Authorization Number prior to shipping the unit. Retail Customers are allowed no more than one exchange in a twelve-month period. Vortech Authorized Dealers and Distributors are allowed unlimited exchanges (subject to Vortech approval), but are required to furnish their customers name, address and phone number when receiving a Return Authorization Number. Once the supercharger is received at Vortech it will be given a cursory visual inspection and the owner will be contacted as to the amount of credit he/she will be issued toward their new supercharger purchase. There are currently two categories that determine the overall condition of the supercharger and the credit to be issued. They are described as Class "A" and Class "B" exchanges and are explained in detail in the following text.
In order to qualify as a Class "A" exchange, the supercharger must be a qualifying supercharger, in good running and working condition, internally and externally. The supercharger will receive a cursory visual inspection and spun to check its overall condition. All major components of the supercharger must be in good working and visual condition. Major components are defined as the following; gearcase, gearcase cover, drive gear, input shaft, impeller shaft, compressor housing and impeller. If the supercharger qualifies as a Class "A" exchange, the owner of the supercharger will receive an in-house credit, which will be applied toward the purchase of a new V-4 J-Trim, X-Trim, XX-Trim XXX-Trim or Z-Trim supercharger. The credit will be in the amount of $1200.00, which will be deducted from the retail price of the new supercharger being purchased. The credit must be used within ten business days.
In order to qualify as a Class "B" exchange, the supercharger must be a qualifying supercharger, returned assembled, with all of its major components, as listed previously and may or may not be in good working and/or visual condition. The supercharger will receive a cursory visual inspection and spun to check its overall condition. Generally, a supercharger being returned that has failed to some degree will be classified as a Class "B" exchange. Examples include, but are not limited to, the unit does not spin, the unit is hard to spin or exhibits a low pitch growling sound when spun, the impeller has contacted the compressor housing, etc. If the supercharger qualifies as a Class "B" exchange, the owner of the supercharger will receive an in-house credit, which will be applied toward the purchase of a new V-4 J-Trim, X-Trim, XX-Trim, XXX-Trim or Z-Trim supercharger. The credit will be in the amount of $600.00, which will be deducted from the retail price of the new supercharger being purchased. The credit must be used within ten business days. Any supercharger returned which is unassembled or missing major components, as previously defined, will not receive any credit and will not be considered for this program. The owner of the supercharger will be responsible for the net cost of the supercharger (retail price minus the credit) as well as all return shipping costs. Shipping and payment for the supercharger are subject to the current Vortech policies in effect at the time of purchase. The supercharger returned to Vortech for this program will become the property of Vortech once a new supercharger has been shipped. The owner of the returned supercharger gives up all rights and foreseeable responsibilities associated with the returned supercharger unit. All V-4 series superchargers are considered “Race Parts" and come with a standard Six Month Limited Warranty. The owner of the new supercharger should review the Racing Owner's Manual enclosed with the supercharger prior to installation of the unit. If you have any questions or concerns regarding supercharger compressor sizing, mounting, impeller speeds, bypass valves, etc., please contact Vortech directly or your local Vortech Authorized Dealer/Distributor for technical assistance.
