    4-Digit HP | VMP 3100 TVS Superchargers for Coyote and GT500

    We’ve known this was coming for over a year, but that passage of time hasn’t seemed to reduce the fevered interest in the forthcoming slate of TVS 3100 based superchargers. Of the manufacturers that will be releasing kits based on the 3100 rotor pack, VMP Performance has to be the one garnering the most interest. We’ve heard talk of VMP 3100 blower head units testing out in the wild for some time now, but we recently got a chance to check out a couple such setups at VMP’s HQ in FL.

    Totally unassuming, just your average everyday 1,200 RWHP Mustang.

    The two engines in question are heavy hitters in the field of modern Ford performance mills, a 5.0L Coyote and a 5.8L Trinity. The Coyote was instrumented up for testing. On top of several pressure sensors located throughout various sections of the intake tract, VMP placed one very interesting sensor near the blower pulley. With some custom bracket work, a Coyote exhaust cam position sensor, and a Mustang Dyno Smart Tach VMP is able to read blower pulley speed. By knowing this figure and what the theoretical speed should be based on the pulley diameters they are able to determine if belt slip is occurring in the system.


    When it comes to power output, the built Coyote topped with the VMP 3100 is in the 1200HP range and that is rear wheel horsepower. That’s pretty healthy for a nearly stock appearing convertible. Speaking of appearances, it’s practically impossible to differentiate a VMP 2650 TVS from a 3100 TVS based on outward appearance. That’s because when VMP was designing its 2650 superchargers it designed the blower case with enough extra material to allow it to be further machined to accept the 3100 rotors when they became available. That means if you run into someone running a VMP blower in Mexico it’s going to be pretty tough to determine if he’s actually running a 2650 or trying to take your money with a 3100.

    All sensored up and ready to go to work.

    Turning our attention over to the SVT GT500, it too is rocking a classically styled VMP 3100 TVS. If this car looks familiar; that may be because it is owned by Justin Young, the organizer of ModNats. Though the car could be a serious contender at ModNats 2021, it is being built for 1/2 mile runs and probably won't be one of the racers at that event. It’s 3100 TVS rotors are housed in a VMP Gen3R case and are fed by a massive oval throttle body. The goal is 1,200 rear wheel horsepower, and with the fully built engine that seems quite attainable. In any event, we have more VMP 3100 Supercharger news coming up soon. If you have an SVT Terminator you won’t want to miss it.

    Yep, I need a GT500 or a Boss now. This thing is going to be nasty.

    Nice write-up, Sid. This stirs up the interest in the 3100 a few notches. I'm looking forward to hearing more future reports on what folks are going to get out of this latest TVS.

    ****. YES.

    @SID297 Any rough guesstimate from VMP on their launch date cause I cant wait for demos and reviews. I want to see what this will do from a stock lower pulley large upper in pump gas, all the way to an ATI 15% lower with 2.4 upper on C85.

    Wow, that is nasty!!!
    They just keep getting better and better all the time,.........the blowers that is. lol

    Any word on the S550 platform, or is this just for the S197 Coyote/Trinity engines for now?

    I'm sure there's and ODIN kit in the works, or a traditional GT500 style kit for Coyote.

    Killer video previewing what’s to come! And I love seeing the testing they do, something we don’t get to see much!
    Bring on the Gen4R :)

    This is a good question as there is not an OEM use currently of the 3.1 rotor pack. Or does Ford have something up their sleeve...

    Pretty interesting how they relocated the cam position sensor to right next to the belt. Will be curious to see if that causes any issues in the longterm as position sensors can be finicky sometimes and can be affected by outside elements like leaking oil for instance which will often times leave the car running terribly and the owner thinking the problem is going to be much worse than it really is.

    I don't think that's a relocation set up. They used a cam sensor to monitor blower RPM. That's why it's triggered off the bolt heads. If blower RPM drops while engine RPM raises you have belt slip. It probably feeds a separate datalog input. I doubt you could relocate a cam sensor and expect the engine to run well.

    That makes sense. I read it to understand it the way I said, but your explanation makes more sense. I wouldn't think that you could relocate a cam/crank sensor.

    Great review Travis! Too bad I couldn't swing by and say hi when you were in town.
