Looking at the Vortech warranty page it appears to be an issue (voids warranty). Not sure if this is applicable in the VT-535/575 application.

"Subjecting any Vortech supercharger to a “cold start-up” condition (below 25° F) without the use of an engine block heater/aftermarket engine blanket."
Great research man. I've also be reading ESS and vortechs websites religiously. I want to fully understand what I'm about to get into!!!!
