Re: supercharged

YEah my powerdyne kit came with a small bosch BOV. Dont get noise from it very often with an auto but it does go off every now and then.

Unless the supercharger has a clutch on the pulley you'll need a BOV to prevent air from being forced down the engine's throat at idle/light throttle.

Re: supercharged

Yep, EDXR8 is spot on there. Didnt cost a cent over $6k for the powerdyne kit - spent plenty on tools tho....

It's tough to explain how complete the kits are. EVERYTHING, absolutely EVERYTHING!

All kits come with a Vortech 75mm MAF, Powerdyne use the stock injectors with FMU and the Vortech kits come with larger injectors (24/30lb) and also an FMU.

Obviously the best way on either kit (but especially on the Vortech's) is to opt for 42lb injectors, no FMU and aftermarket computer. This will give the best power, fuel economy and reliability.
