Here you go Ryan,
Originally, Need-for-Speed developed this kit for the 94-98 3.8s. I bought most of the pieces from them and fabbed the rest. I also improved the kit over the last 4 years.
*Ease of install. Its hands down the easiest to install. It requires trimming the fan shroud, drilling a couple of holes to relocate the overflow bottle and a modification to the tensioner bracket. All these mods take maybe 2 hours. Total install takes maybe 4 hours.
*No oil. The Powerdyne uses an internal dry cog belt set-up = no oil lines, no oil to buy or change.
*Intercooled. The Powerdyne does not use an IC...but it really doesn't need one until you really crank the boost up to 12+ psi. Because is doesn't use hot engine oil to pre-heat it and because it has little internal friction like the ProCharger it runs very cool.
*The Powerdyne kit is designed for a suck through MAF but it can be set-up for blow-through as well if you insist on the cool BOV sound.
* Kit comes complete with MAF, injectors, pump and chip
* The BD-11A doesn't have the best reputation for durability. Its a great blower and will serve you well but you must accept that it will prob have to be rebuilt once every 2 years. Under warranty it only costs you shipping. Out of warranty it costs $200 for a rebuild with bearing and belt replacement.

General Install Notes
*Read the instructions several times before attempting install. Ask questions before-hand.
*Dont skimp on the fuel peripherals!
*Get all the tools needed for the install before hand. Both instruction guides list what is needed.
*Lay the kit out on the floor and verify that you have everything you need. This is especially true if you buy a used kit.
