No idea on the bottom end, the previous owner told me it was stock. I know it's got intake, heads and cam, running about 6-7psi of boost. It was running lean as all hell (good thing I didn't dog on it) so TrueStreet added in a little more fuel, changed the plugs and ran it on the dyno. Numbers make it a nice daily while staying streetable..

The 6-rib belt for the blower decided last night it wanted to be a 5-rib so it's sitting on my desk here at work. I guess tonight at 9pm when I get off work I get to go down to the car (parked it next to a dealership) and replace that belt on the roadside. The joys of modified cars!

EDIT: Not the belt. Supercharger headunit seized and shredded the belt. Fuck.

I've heard there is a guy that rebuilds them but I can't remember who it is.

I heard a guy had a Powerdyne at TSM.....DONNY. Any idea if yours would be a suitable replacement?

A place called 928 Motorsports has rebuild services and sells all the necessary parts as these blowers are actually relatively simple internally. I'm pulling the unit tonight in the garage to see what really happened. It looks clean looking in from the backside of the blower but that front pulley isn't budging. If I'm lucky it's just an internal drive belt that failed and got wedged that I can replace and be good to roll...

The other option I have is track down a good used unit, preferably just the blower itself, off another car (P/N: BD-11 or BD-11A) for a couple hundred bucks and just bolt it up and go. The replacement belts (if that's all it needs) run $50-80 depending on brand and quality so for a little more money a second blower would be good as then I'll have spares etc. I scoured a few forums and Craigslist to no avail... if anyone has one or knows someone with one they want to offload cheap let me know.

Tim...you guys don't have a spare, good condition BD-11 stuck in a corner somewhere? Lol.

....I have a BD-11A. Uncertain of it's condition 100%. Blownaltered should be able to shed some light on that matter.

928 Motorsports is a good shop, should repair it no problem.

Not my blower. The only one I got is on my car. Now if you have a 76 mm turbo laying around you want to say is mine I will take that all day long.

Since it's not blownaltered's it appears you have an unclaimed BD-11A... If it is in decent shape maybe we can come to an agreement on it lol. Let me know, it would be pretty awesome to get this sucker back together tonight...
