Does anyone have one fitted? I'm looking on thier website and it says there are 3 stages for EF/EL. Stage 1 and 2 are Powerdyne units, and stage 3 is a Vortech. Stage 1 is an estimate 215kw running at 6 psi, stage 2 is an estimate 240kw running at 9 psi and stage 3 just says "Mod engine" running at 9-14psi.
I'm presuming anymore than 10psi or so and you need the engine rebuilt with stronger internals. Anyone know what exactly is done to this "mod engine" in the stage 3? I also wonder how much power stage 3 would be with an extra 5 psi if 9psi stage 2 does happen to be 240kw.
Prices are as follows -
Powerdyne stage 1: $5,351.00
Powerdyne stage 2: $5,997.00
Vortech stage 3: $7,995.00
Now would these prices include fitting? I would presume so but I dont know where you would get it done as I dont know any CAPA dealerships. It doesn't say on the website whether the prices are labour inclusive or not.

well I wouldn't bother with anything less then the stage 3 kit, so you would be looking at about 10 grand fitted....for that I'd go to P.E.T in Melbourne. They can do a full turbo kit for the EA-AU falcon which includes the following:
GT40 ball-bearing turbo.
custom before-turbo extractors.
3 inch exhaust.
all fitted for 10 grand.
power depends on boost.....but I wouldn't expect any less then 200rwkws...

PET may do great turbos, but the question was about superchargers.
I would imagine that the difference between Stage 1 and Stage 2 probably also includes an intercooer.
Personally, I would go with stage two as this would be less stressful on the motor than a stage three (and doesn't require any mods). BTW, the kit Falkeen is fitting is good for 195rwkw - about 45rwkw less than what CAPA quote.
