This just in:

Vortech Engineering (<a href="http://www.automotiveforums.com/sponsors.cgi?http://www.vortechsuperchargers.com"; target="blank">http://www.vortechsuperchargers.com</a>;) supercharger will be used on our AF 350Z.

We would love for our members to have input on the following matter:

Should the AF 350Z utilize the satin or polished finish of the supercharger?

Thanks for your input!

depends on if you are going to "bling bling" under the hood or just business.

One more for satin, the polished one would stick out like a sore thumb.

Satin... Everybody and their brother uses polished this... or chrome that.

A clean aluminum natural finish just looks sweet.


And tell Vortech that it's only fair to send me a Supercharger too. My Mommy told me to share, and Vortech should listen to their Mommy's.

personally i would have rather seen a twin-turbo setup go onto the car, but i also understand the sponsership aspect of this build. so my vote goes to a satin finish SC.

Wow - I am very surprised at the way the votes have turned out so far. My original reasoning was since no extra money is necessary to get the S/C in polished trim and according to many actual owners it does look much better, that I should go with polished.

I'm all for the polished, this isn't a racer, its a show car and it should fit the bill. Flashy, shiny, and attractive are what I think you should be thinking about.

This will be a competitive track car, but I don't see a little shine in the engine bay hurting the image, considering it will not be a dent in the budget as this is a sponsorship.

Powdercoat to match the car. My supercharger was polished, then I got it powedercoated in body color and it looks a lot better.

polished or powdercoat
pratical reoson being that since its a smooth finish you can keep it clean just by wiping it off

and polished looks way better anyway
