Convert from Powerdyne to Vortech??

761 Views 6 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Todd
I have been thinking of converting my 9# boost (only driven on Sundays to the gas station and back :rolleyes: ) Powerdyne supercharger over to a Vortech.

Any one have an idea of what would be needed? It looks like the brackets are interchangable(?)

I already have all the needed upgrades, fuel, ignition, etc. I think all I need to do is replace the supercharger head, add a oil line, and fire it up??

Worth changing or not worth the bother??

If you are going bigger get the powerdyne gear driven unit, it will make 18psi, and you can keep your brackets, it's just a head unit swap.

It would be easier and cheaper, and this unit will make the hp as a vortech.
Actually you can look at the october 2002 edition of Fast fords & MM they took a 302 with afr heads and made 594 hp with only 9.9lbs of boost.

They did a r-trim which made 638hp with 13.8 lbs of boost.

Adding about 10-12hp per lb of boost you are looking at the same hp as the vortech R-Trim.

So go with the powerdyne, and if it works let me know and I will switch to the XB1A too.
I am not positive but I know they have a 13lb pulley and a 15lb, but I bet they have few choices with this new guy.
