As far as getting to the LIM Gaskets, fairly simple, I haven't done it on a supercharged car but the block and heads are the same on my N/A as your Supercharged motor, so they'd bolt up the same. Its just some more bolts (Maybe 10 or so), the coolant elbow fitting and radiator hose more to get it off to get to the gaskets. Someone will correct me if I'm wrong.

Definitely worth it to do the LIM gaskets, you'll notice a little difference if they are near as bad as mine were after 161k miles

IF you are going to pull the supercharger, it'* another 15 minutes or less to yoink the LIM. You will have to drain the coolant before doing this, of course, but now'* the time to do the LIM gasket. You might consider, while you're in this deep anyway, replacing the valve cover gaskets - the one in the back is nasty to get to. Also pull the throttle body and clean it while you have it off.

I just did this on my 2003 last weekend, so I'm kinda familiar with the task.

I got a little crazy and purchased too many injector o-rings and valve cover grommets, if someone wants them PM me...

Default okay

Where could I get a coupler for 25$ I talked to the one guy in ONTARIO that will even touch a GM SC. He'* called Mr.Turbo. I called him and he told me it was 1800 for a new one, but if I just want the noise to go away he would charge me 500! If a coupler is 25 or 35 cdn. than what about the other 465 dollars, thats in labour. God I am glad I didnt do it!

www.rollingperformance.com
www.intense-racing.com
www.zzperformance.com

For a few.

All have the couplers, oil, and sealant. I personally prefer rollingperformance because of their very fast shipping, but I generally buy new bearings at the same time.

This is a 2-hour DIY job for anyone that'* done it before, 4-6 hours for a first timer with some basic under-hood skills.

When you say it is leaking, where is it leaking from? From just behind the pulley or from where the whole nose drive attaches to the main housing?
