Eh, they are okay. I see decent numbers out of them sometimes.

Their biggest down fall is that after a while, the internal belt will break. But once you rebuild it with a kevlar belt, they seem to hold up for a while.

Also, people run Vortech's under their stock hood so I wouldn't imagine a Powerdyne would be any different.

Yea it uses engine oil. I get about 22 to 24 mpg as long as I drive like I have some sence. The car is crazy loud right now to the point I don't like it, hurts my ears. I drive with ear plugs lol. Right now its ported manifolds no cats xpipe and no mufflers. That's with a 2.5 inch mandrual exhuast system. With the factory exhaust all you could hear was the supercharger.

Adding mufflers should help it's just stright pipe at the moment. I would of had some put on with the exhaust system but I hadn't planed on the flowmasters being rotted out again. This is the second set of flowmasters I have had on the car. There were no baffels left at all in them. Going with magnaflow this time maybe they will hold up. Just didn't have the extra 200 on me after 300 for the exhaust system and 120 to have it put on.
