Thoughts on used powerworks s/c. WHAT might i need in future to be worried about if any.I know price is good but is it worth the money and time.
I think so, I bought a used kit. Before you buy it, you must study the kit over and know what parts are involved. Many of them can be replaced but others not.
Easier install than turbo
220 HP out of box/ 250!!! with svt
If the charger breakers you can send it to steigmeir
Upgradable to 280+ HP with smaller pulley
Many parts are easily bought online and/or duplicated
SMOG Legal !
Relativley low torque
you will probably have to spend several $100 on new parts buying used
Hard to tell what shape the bearings and rotors are in (cant tell till you open it up . but you can send out for a full rebuild and recoat the rotors for about $1k)
Need to update oil plate (mocal or aftermarket) $100
Limited to 300HP,
SVT Install is slightly harder ( NOT buy much )
I have not installed mine yet. I replaced and upgraded as many parts as possible as I am going for max performance. Will give full feedback in a month or so of how I like the kit.
