Rich made it over today for the top swap.
We got right to work.
Pulled the fuel rails, throttle body, vacuum lines, and brackets.
And off came the supercharger
Cleaned up the gasket surface a bit.
And it all went back on.
A last few odds and ends and it'* all done.
Total time, 65 minutes. And that was with about 20 mins of cleaning up the gasket surfaces. And we took our time. Helps when you have two people that know what they are doing.
Started up after the fuel pressure built up and first thing Rich says is, it'* idling smoother. Pushed the throttle and then said, hey, it'* not stumbling. This engine has been a pain for a while, changing the supercharger seems to have corrected a lot of problems. The coupler is good, the rotors look good, but there is some noise in the area of the gears. I'll take the SC apart and then I will know more.
And off he goes, another happy customer. He wasn't happy about the rain, he wanted to put it down. He gave it a bit and it sounds really hot.
