powerworks is just an awesome bolt on, but if youre gonna spend the dough and build the motor up might as well go turbo

Compression ratio has NOTHING to do with what kind of temps are comming from a blower!! The powerworks setup does a great job at keeping intake temps down. Even with the bigger boost kit, it showed no excessive intake temps on the dyno. The efficiency of the blower does limit the power to just under 300whp no matter what. The powerworks kit does respond to compression ratio changes, adding to the torque and hp. Since it's not a TURBO- you can't just crank the boost up a few pounds, so if you're building an engine anyway, go with slightly higher CR and a set of FI cams to make more power from your supercharger.

I dont agree with this at all , I have seen 260 intake temps on the dyno and over 280 deg intake temps on the road with the power works , and this is in more then one case , those are super high # the pw cooler is WAY undersized and does little to keep the IAT cool
