Blower plz

HI guys

Just wondering about a supercharger?

The cost fitted?

Best brand?

How much boost to run on a xr6 engine with out causing problems?

And wot sort of rwkw would i expect?

Any suggestions would be helpful

ive seen them brand new for around $5500 add on a couple hundred for fitting. plus you would need to rip the engine down to lower the compression which can be expensive if you dont do it yourself.

You've got a point there Hurricane, but how about torque comparisons?

each of those kits will get more power out of a inline 6 but you have to keep the reliablility in mind.....if you properly prepare your engine to take more boost then just fit an intercooler & turn the boost up....otherwise stick with what you got....I would go with CAPA only because I've never heard of the other brand/company

Jim Mock Motorsport can pump your car (EA-AU) to a 175kw rear wheels for round $4,500, that doesn't consist of a supercharger or turbo, just mods of the 4L motor.

If a 168rwkw blown I6 was up against a 175rwkw mock motor, I would be putting my money on the blown car thats for sure.
Don't even bother comparing forced induction figures to a car with a cam and head work.

The difference is guys, a powerdyne blower can be mounted on the any car, with the write mounting, say you bolt it on a edxr6 you sell the car keep the blower, put it on an auxr8.

IF YOU DONT TRY IT YOU WONT KNOW.
