Willwren, how many blowers have you "personally" removed from these engines? And how many have you personally inspected the gasket on?
To say that you have seen one of thousands fail is not a very accurate statement if you are going off of the forum. You have only removed a hand full of blowers...not thousands.
The gaskets that I have seen blown out are on cars that run fine, the only reason that I work on them is because they have coolant leaks or blower noises.
I've been working on GM vehicles for over 12 years now, I think I have removed more blowers than you.
Motorhead, you don't want to go down that road. I think I've seen far more superchargers on this Forum than you have in your career. But this isn't the place for a battle of wits and experience.
You suggest a 'blown' outlet gasket. I can tell you from THOUSANDS of cars here we've only seen ONE. If you have them that often at your dealership, perhaps it'* the quality of the work or mis-diagnosis.
Again, let'* stick to the COMMON possibilities, shall we?
