Guess I'll be removing Vortech from my potential supercharger list. Anyone other superchargers have this caveat?

I've had a procharger since 2006. They have similar claims. Would bet they all do. If you are familiar with forced induction, you'll know that wot driving below 25* isn't really an option anyway. If winter operation is important, might rethink the whole idea anyway.

Of course they do. I've been f/I since 2006, love it. Just saying that kind of power isn't fully utilized in cold weather anyway.

I think its just this type of supercharger that has that warning on them. I dont recall ever seeing this on a GT500 manual, or on a turbo setup(turbos might not have them do to exhaust heating them up(enough) quickly.

Procharger and Vortech have been around for a while with good results. Wouldn't be scared of either one. My car COULD be a daily driver. It's more if a toy though. Traction in rain and cold weather takes away from the fun.

I always let the engine warm up for 5 minutes in below 30 degrees temps with my Saleen SC. Plus I don't boost too hard since the air is so thick and the cold thick air increases the HP so much, I just build to bits of boost for zip but don't take it all the way up the rpm range in the really cold weather.

The key to this is really simple.
Warm-Up before driving away.
And drive with common sense when it is really cold.
Let everything get up to {Operating} temperature.
