I saw on supersixmotorsports.com where they make a "Power Pak" that can add "up to" 90 horsepower, and make the engine more durable if I were to supercharge it. They say it's a safer alternative, but my question is how much drivability / gas mileage am I going to lose? Also, that "up to" doesn't sound very promising.... does anyone have any experience with their kits and can tell me what these kits do on a close to stock engine? I've got a few bolt ons, but nothing big. If anyone knows anything about these kits, please help me out!
the only way the SCs hurt your engine is if you use bad gas, and/or stay in the boost ALL THE TIME.
The power paks are just ported pieces, camshafts, some have different pistons . .. I'm not sure what you're asking?
They may be a little "safer" with a SC unit, but in the end, the cost is the same, Those are the same parts you'd replace anyway.

He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion.
