The newer turbos produce boost at very low RPM's.
Our santa fe produces max torque 260ftlbs at 1600rpm.
Its crazy.
Have fun with the mod. We are all curious.
Does the company you are working with have a website.
Yes, but it's in Chinese and they don't list the Mazda kit on there, not sure why

Technically they're two sister companies (VT-Racing and Anrot Industries). Searching for those names you can find posts on Facebook and Instagram, but mostly from 2019 (that's when they launched a whole line of twin-screw supers) and a few months into launch the pandemic hit...

Basically all of their sales are from within China right now, where they install as part of the sale (some install pictures they've sent me are just in an apartment building parking lot). So it's been challenging to communicate and exchange funds

Got them to send me close up pictures of the supercharger assembly. They're calling it their second-generation "more texture and more power" LOL (I think this is their second big run of manufacturing the Mazda kits...)
Wish I didn't have to wait weeks ;)

Well... it's a bit of a strange path...
Short Version:
Ended up in communication with a sales person for VT-Racing (Kay Wei) through WeChat. I sent a deposit of about $600 (3398cny), using app Remitly, once the supercharger arrives I will pay the remaining ~$4000 (including shipping). Then will install and work with them to remote tune. They will be providing a formal warranty document, but some of it will be in Chinese (translater app works great for raw tranlation).

Long Version:
I had heard of this mythical Mazda supercharger out of China in couple different forums/group chats, but hadn't thought much of it... until I started seeking a way to boost this car. @fernando8877 mentioned that company again (VT-Racing) so I started researching. I figured out that there's two companies behind it and started searching every permutation I could think of these combination of values VTRacing/VT-Racing/Anrot/Supercharger/etc. For every post (social media, youtube, etc.) that had contact info I messaged them. I think I ended up pinging about 10 different numbers through text and WhatsApp (plus a few emails as well).
Once 2 of those numbers were communicating with me I set about trying to figure out if they were for real... a coworker is from China so I enlisted his help, we got the legal company names and he pulled government corporate registration information and through family confirmed this company IS known for selling good superchargers. Even got their corporate bank account numbers and verified they are associated with those businesses (didn't end up using bank transfer, but was useful to aid validation that I'm not getting scammed).
Have been in regular contact most days of the week now, on WeChat, asking questions and trying to establish path to selling these more easily in the US (once I have the kit installed and working I will be reaching out to Corksport to see if they want to partner or become a reseller for them or something)....

P.S.
I've asked them to make an install video for the Mazda kit, like the below one, but not sure they will get to it before I do :)

May I know how were you able and verify that it's not a scam?

Why not you be the reseller? Once you have done it, your car is the actual model. You should be able to easily convince any future customer because you yourself have it. You can do it as a part-time job during weekends, then perhaps start a small company when the demand is picking up. Is putting up a company too difficult in your area?

Sorry, I'm off topic. I want my own business as I'm fed up with having a boss for so many years. Even if you are the CEO, you still have a boss unless you are the owner. Since I have been looking for opportunities, I see this as one.

YES, I've definitely been thinking about possibilities... at minimum I want to help further the cause for all Mazda owners, and am thinking about ways to capitalize on the exclusivity of this kit (only FI for skyactiv). And I already feel like I don't have enough free time, not sure how much I want to sign up for....:)

Cool
Thanks for sharing.......have fun tuning.
I did not know the 6speed auto for the NA is the same in the factory turbo.
Should be able to hold the torque nicely.

Honestly, I won't completely know until I have the thing running on my car...

But, after identifying when the base corporations were formed, when they launched their whole line of twin screw superchargers (2019), having my Chinese friend call & talk to them,having them provide their business bank account and my friend's sister talked to the bank manager to confirm that the account is associated with supercharger company...
The sketchiest part is sending money, I used Remitly to send deposit in Yuan (Chinese currency), specifically 3988cny since it's an auspicious number and I'll take whatever help I Can get 😁
I've also negotiated the deal so I Won't send the remainder of the money until the supercharger arrives/ is in my hands.
And I've been negotiating all along about how to help them sell a bunch of these kits (my intention was more about reducing risk than truly starting a side business, figured if they thought I was a gateway to lots more sales then they will treat me even better, which is seeming true so far)

Now it makes sense. Yes, reducing the risk is more important. I was thinking of ordering a chrome spray kit as a side business but I hesitated as they were asking for a full payment. I never bothered to communicate after that.

Good thing you have a Chinese friend, that makes things a bit easier to confirm that you are dealing with a legitimate company.

Supposedly my kit is on its way to an intermediate location where it will then be shipped to the US. Current estimate is 2 weeks out (~4/20), assuming it arrives as planned I will likely do the install the weekend of 4/24 or 5/1, getting excited/nervous

They shared the install instructions, and though they are not translated yet, there are so many pictures I think I could almost figure it out as is :)
Looks legitimate and makes me feel more confident about this, they clearly have done this before...

Updated original post with details of accompanying parts list...

Still waiting for tracking number, once I have that it's expected to only take 5 days to get here, but it may be another couple weeks before that happens, depending on customs and stuff. Obviously I'll update this thread once I hear anything.
