Car will always be leaving a temperature controlled garage so no issues there, however return trip I could be facing a cold start up.

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."
We have many cars that use our kits in sub 25 deg F temps without issue. Our 2 year warranty will cover the blower 100% regardless of the climate it is used in.
