Well, I have the V2SQ in my 540.
It can't be started in ambient temperatures below 25 degrees fahrenheit or it will die unless you get the Dinan one which has custom internals that don't fail in this way.
Mine also failed very shortly after install--there was a bad batch; RoadsterMadness's failed very quickly too.
I have no knowledge about Rotrex units.
Tread carefully my friend. An expensive and unsure road you embark upon. Bear in mind also that Vortech is using the SQ3's quite a bit now and that other SC set up's have a steeper torque curve if you are looking for more off the line explosion as opposed to late in the game, high rev power (mine is raring to go at extremely high speed - bigest boost lives there which is a lot less practical outside the track...). There is mixed opinion on the using it in 25 degree temps being a problem or not (apparently the official materials say yes from Vortech but my mechanic says bull. I will keep mine inside for the winter in at least a partially heated garage to avoid any issues and will assess the space to see if I can squeeze señor Prof into a spot next to teh Roadster (once I break the inside wall on taking title and reestablish the 2 car garage, I will see if we can possibly park side by side and fit with teh wife's 328 still clear to come and go daily from the main spot in front of the door. More on this as it develops but would be cool and great for Nathaniel and the Dinan 5. We shall see.
