The intelligent power management company Eaton recently announced its Twin Vortices Series (TVS) X3100 supercharger for aftermarket applications. Although the X3100 features a new design based on both the R-Series and V-Series rotors, the X-Series was explicitly developed for aftermarket customers whose primary goal is maximum airflow efficiency at higher supercharger speeds.
Eaton TVS X3100 Supercharger: Details
The X-series rotor is a three-lobe, high-twist design that moves 30% more air than the R2650 at comparable pulley speeds while maintaining the same design footprint within the engine compartment. The product is featured as part of a new Magnuson supercharger kit installed in a 1957 Chevrolet at Eaton’s booth (22743) at the 2022 SEMA Show in Las Vegas. It’s also worth noting that Eaton owns Magnuson Superchargers, and we can also expect this blower to be available through that brand, as well.
The X3100 was developed in response to customer demand for more excellent airflow from a same-sized engine package. As a result, Eaton’s TVS supercharger aftermarket partners can now provide even more outstanding performance to their customers with only slight modifications to their existing housings for a better under-hood fit and quicker time to market. When compared to the R2650, the new X-Series design offers the following:
17% larger displacement (3100cc vs. 2650cc)
Over 30% more airflow at 18,000 RPM and 14 psi boost (2.0 PR)
Approximately 11% more volumetrically efficient
Aftermarket superchargers with Eaton TVS Technology are available exclusively from their supercharger partners, which include Magnuson Products, Harrop Engineering, Edelbrock, Roush Performance, and Superchargers Online. You can contact them for specific application information regarding the X3100. The fact that Eaton ensured the new supercharger maintains the same design footprint as the R2650 means that we shouldn’t have to wait long until their partners start whipping out supercharger kits with this product. Unfortunately, until that happens, we won’t know what the pricing for these supercharger kits will be.
