    Default Powerdyne Supercharger

    So I picked up a used powerdyne bd600 yesterday locked up. I bought it on a gamble from a local. I tore the supercharger down which just needs some bearings-got lucky! I was amazed at how simple this thing is. It's basically a case, 2 main shafts and 4 bearings. I was originally going to use my twin screw kenne belle but I may use the powerdyne due to the ease of mounting. I know the pros and cons but wandered if anybody else here had much experience with powerdyne?

    Never used one myself. However majority of centrifugal superchargers are all copies of each other, "paxton, vortech, ECS east coast superchargers, powerdyne, torquestorm.
    They work good for what designed for. Not as efficient as turbo, no instant torque/boost like a roots or twin screw.

    Yeah the centri is also laggier the properly sized turbo but a lot more efficient than a roots or twin screw.

    yep if the twin is comparable in size to the centri. The centri will make more peak hp per lb of boost on comparable engines.

    I was thinking more about the heated air. The twin screw supposedly works better when there is no cooler.
