Default powerdyne superchargers?

hey guys new here, bought a 99 ram 5.9 with a powerdyne.

looking for more info on these. having a hard time finding it. tried searching and i came up with nothing.

how do i tell what size pulley or how many pounds of boost ?

also, the boost gauge doesnt seem to be working right, its not reading boost. not sure what could be the problem there.

and one more question, there is a MSD boost retard control. it seems like when its on 3, it runs a lot better. how do i know how this should be adjusted? is it safe to run it on 3? better to run on 1?


if im just casually driving does it matter what its set on? is it safe for my engine?


im going to have a lot of questions because im new to this. lol. bear with me!

Powerdyne went out of business. Finding info is going to be tuff.
