Three sources for couplers and oil (you need two bottles):

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

You also need the red gasket maker (small tube) from the dealer. Don't use RTV.

Being a Series 2, you don't have to pull the entire SC off the car to change it like us poor 92-95 guys (us pro'* can do it in under an hour). It'* very straightforward.

With 1/4" of play, I'd go VERY easy on the throttle. You're reaching the point of breakage. I'd do the work within the month. Watch out for the odor (the oil is made from animal fats that have obviously been cooking into leftovers each day you drove the car) and here'* some helpers for you:

And with Willwren putting all that info into the post..it'* bascially a done deal.

You should have all the information you need and more.

Mike, it'* a piece of cake on the 96--03 L67'*. You'll be fine. Be anal about the torque values and what you seal the nosedrive with. You'll have no leaks. Torque in a cross-pattern (zig-zag) in stages. Half torque, then 3/4 torque, then full torque in three rotations.

Use a SMALL amount of the red sealant, but an unbroken beat that also goes around each bolt hole. Too much will ooze out and in. It'* a tight no-gap fit, so it doesn't take much.

Okay.... Haven't turned a wrench and already questions.... Looking at the links above for the parts I need.... I'm guessing the coupler is bad. Should I also do the bearings while I've got the thing off? The parts and all are not that bad, price wise...... but are there any special tools or skills I might need to do the bearings? And do I need the Snout Seal that is shown with the other parts? Intense seems to have the best prices... Are the ceramic ball bearings from Rolling Performance worth the extra $100 or so? Honestly, she'* got plenty of kick as she is for me.... not that I wouldn't mind a few extra ponies if they were cheap and easy.

So.... coupler only? coupler and seal? Coupler, bearings and seal? Whatcha' think?

QUESTION 2: Is a smaller pulley a "cheap & easy" way to extra horsepower? I was thinkin' whilst it was off.... Is it like a cam in that you can do a slightly smaller pulley for a little extra power and tiny pulley if you want to risk the rotors coming through the windshield?

Thanks for all the help! I'm planning on ordering my parts this week. The car also needs CV Joints.... gonna have someone else do those, though....

MIke

OK, so I don't have the supercharger experience you need to get answers to everything you just asked, so you'll need input from the SC gurus for that, but I can tell you that your statement above is "sort of" correct if somewhat funny.

However, before you buy a smaller pulley and just slap it on do a lot of reading here and ask a lot of good questions. You'll need to know that your fuel pump is very good. You'll ideally want to provide some better breathing with a well-made CAI and possibly some other improvements, etc.

You'll also want easy access or ownership of a good quality code scanner that'll tell you the amount of KR (Knock Retard) your engine is seeing at different points into your throttle.

You'll get more and better info when the SC gurus get back to this thread.
