Powerdyne Superchargers

Has anyone seen/heard much about these powerdyne superchargers on an E series? From what ive seen on the web, they are quite good at delivering power too an EA!
Can it be worth the $3G+?? Apparently the bearings dont
stand up well...

Powerdyne Superchargers

Street Heat (Jan/Feb 2000 edition) had an article on an ED XR8 (stock, only 3" exhaust n Genie headers, 9psi boost) supercharged with a Powerdyne, pumping out 188kW at the wheels! (Powerdyne is manufactured in Australia by 'CAPA' by the way..) Apparently they are 'silent drive blowers'. They have an engine management software, a module that plugs into the service connector on the back of the EEC-4, and overrides all of the standard engine management fuel & ignition mapping. Also, twin blow off valves get mounted onto the intake system apparently inorder to prevent boost spike.. (which occurs when the throttle is snapped shut at high revs). In other words to prevent possible damage to the supercharger over a period of time. Hope this helps.

i had a powerdyne on my car before the STA and the kit was not good!! It was one of the first and simply didnt make any boost!! So i dont recommend them and even working properly they dont make as much power as equivalent kits. CAPA dont make a vortech kits for ea's but it would be very worth while getting sumone to make a bracket for you, as Vortech's are the only blower i would go for! But if you want a kit thats pretty good and less than half the price fully reco'ed that makes 180 kws at the wheels with a few mods, buy mine.

I had a powerdyne on my ED XR6. It was a 9psi kit but only ever got a maximum of 6.5psi. Power wasn't too bad at 168rwkw but there wasn't much chance of getting much more in the future.

I think the only blower to go for these days is the Vortec. If you can't get one fitted I'd consider going for a turbo or two.
