What is the highest horsepower Powerworks Supercharged Focus Out there

Hey everybody I just wanted to get an idea of how much horsepower people have developed with the Powerworks kit. Zetec or SVT.

Best I've heard of is 270. The most common mistake made on by people building PWSC motors is dropping the compression, a no-no on a roots blown car.

I think around that number 250-270 no more than that though. I don't think anyone ever hit 300 with a supercharger on here. If they did it was only one person using race gas and black magic.

The problem with the PW is the more power you try to make the higher the IAT goes which isnt what you want , the PW as it is in stock pulley even makes insane hight IAT

Seems like a supercharger for a very fun dd. A turbo for serious power but reliability goes out the window it seems. Fast/cheap/reliable. Pick two!
