Kraftwerks Supercharger Owners Thread

THIS THREAD IS FOR OWNER EXPERIENCES AND QUESTIONS ABOUT OUR EXPERIENCES WITH THIS KIT.

Please post once you've ordered and I'll keep it updated with people that have ordered and will ultimately have the kit on the car. I ask that we all post the Dyno results and impressions/experiences.

This is not a thread for debate about the pro's and cons of this vs. Vortech, Innovate, AVO, FBM, FA20Club, etc. That thread is found HERE This thread is for owner proven facts about this product only, both good and bad.

Here's Kraftwerks Dyno's for a reference point. Both Dyno's were performed on a Rototest HUBDYNO.


C30 Blower
This one is Stock BRZ vs Supercharged BRZ (95mm pulley) with stock headers and exhaust running 91 octane fuel. This shows a gain of 81.9HP and 55.1TQ.




This one is Stock BRZ vs. Supercharged BRZ (95mm pulley) with the forthcoming Skunk2 Headers and Exhaust and fueled with E85. I've been told that the headers are going to be part of their Alpha Series line and should be released in January. This shows a gain of 127.1HP and 83.2TQ.




This one is Stock BRZ vs. Supercharged BRZ (90mm pulley) with the forthcoming Skunk2 Headers and Exhaust and fueled with E85. This shows a gain of 180.8HP and 119.4TQ.




C38 Blower
Here are results using a C38 on an Automatic.

This dyno sheet shows 91 octane numbers at 262.7HP and 204.6TQ. This is an increase of 108.3HP and 70.7TQ.


This dyno sheet shows E85 numbers at 341.5HP and 244.5TQ. This is an increase of 187.1HP and 110.6TQ



Engine bay layout. Oil cooler sandwich plate that is shown is a Skunk2 product. The oil cooler is anticipated to be released in time to ship with the Supercharger kit, sold separately though.

Looks like I'm order #26 for this one. Did the homework and really like how this one's shaping-up!

Well put Mike ... my POV was simply to give enthusiasts who may not be in the 'know' a little background info on Bill. Not looking to sit here and argue who was FA20 powered, DPI, which ECU was harder to tune, etc.

While I absolutely believe Bill's tuning ability, throwing around those names have little correlation with the tuning of this kit.

Now, a proven track record of FA20 tuning would be a great example. For example, both Crawford BRZs and Robispec's FRS are tuned by Bill, and run strong!
