Kraftwerks Supercharger kit

I just saw that kraftwerks has a supercharger kit for our cars. It comes with everything needed. Are they any good?

Have not seen much about them on this site other then them being advertised upon release. From what i understand they are a more affordable approach to a centrifugal kit. The blower head unit i understand is on the smaller side like a Procharger P1? someone might know more about this.

Been involved in the import market for a while, and they have a very good reputation there. They are manufactured in Denmark. They also make kits for some UTV's. Their Camaro kit runs between $5500-$5900, and looks pretty nice for the price. They are using Rotrex superchargers, of which I've read pretty good reviews. I believe they have a unique friction drive system, different from a similar looking centi S/C. Says the kits are capable of up to 700hp, with supporting mods....

My car was used to mock up the 14-15 bracket for the kit. I'm at 650 rwhp on E85 with a NA cam and long tube headers along with the kit. My fuel system was maxed out so I'll be upgrading to a dual pump system on Monday and getting the car tuned again.

Awesome..you have it! Any other members that you are aware of? My only question is does this unit spin up as fast as the direct gear driven units? Any type of lag at all? I suspect not but like I said it was only a question...

Any install hints or pretty straight forward?

Keep us updated on the upgrade results! ...peace out...

I saw a note on their website saying the bracket needed to be modified to fit the 14-15. Is that still true, or did they fab a new bracket for those years?

The only other one I know of is one that Ted Jannetty did for one of his customers. He would probably be able to answer your questions better than me. I basically dropped the car off at Kraftwerks and a week later picked it up with everything installed. I did upgrade to their 1000cc injectors. I don't notice any type of lag but it is my first FI car so I don't have anything to compare it to. Here's my last dyno graph

I just sent my kraftwerks guy a text he said no modifications needed with the new bracket, they just haven't updated the website.

I have their smallest pulley, I don't know if it is at max RPM. I think the tuner said it was only making 5.5 psi

So the top end is still stock? If so that would answer why the cut off at 6400...get some springs and push rods and spin it up...would like to see the hp at 7k...these cars are built for it easy...does the kraftwerks have a rpm limit?

tks fer answerin all the q's! peace out...

It has a NA cam with BTR spring kit and Manley push rods. 6400 is when it would start running out of fuel.

I was thinking about a LSA conversion until i saw this awhile back. Seems like a very well put together kit for budget minded people like me. Any thoughts on which would be better? Thanks in advance!
