    I was viewing the CAPA website today 27/06/05 and nearly went into :w00t: they are advertising blower kits for Gen 3 for $3995, get that, how CHEAP is that. Says 365 Kw for 6psi.

    Anyone like to comment on this, too good to be real

    and 365Kw sounds a little high just for blowing in 6 pounds of boost....?? i think if you add 2k to that price and that would be closer to real...unless they have gone crazy with a sale?

    Going nuts

    They must be nuts, there can't be a profit margin in that, if there is then they have been severly ripping people off :ranting:

    I have sent CAPA a letter asking full price including fitting and tune. I must say though it cetainly would be a great package to have if FULL price is under 5 grand.. :w00t: Will keep you posted if they reply..

    No its supply only

    I asked about it yesterday...only supply, with all instructions tho. and its only 5psi..I asked him what if I already had 300kw would I get more? and he said no..so not so sure about how good, although it does say upgradable!

    Of course you will get more power with a blower, it dosen't matter what power you had before! you will still get an increase.
    And that price is from $3995, this is for the powerdyne blower and pulley's only.

    Yes that is right 365 kw's prob very close to the mark $3990 comes with plug in tune etc fit yourself in half a day and best part is easy to take off for warranty issues or if you sell the car cheap hp.

    Sorry let me explain....the kit is designed for stock ls1's IE: approx 220kw. I meant if I had already got 300 would I get more than 365kw? his answer was no...you won't get more than approx 365kw. SO for me it was 4gs for 65kw.

    the powerdyne $3995 kit uses standard fuel pump and injectors, so I guess that would dictate how much power you can get out of them.

    Also they wont waranty them if you run more than 6psi.

    Much better to save a bit more and go for a vortech
