I'd be looking for new rotors. That'* just pure ugliness. Probably the worst M62 rotor set I've seen. There had to be some 'outside influence' to cause that.

Spinning the SC faster to make up for the coating loss is self-defeating. It'll cost you horsepower to drive it faster, and you'll increase your boost charge temps. You lose twice over taking that path.

I'll post some pics of ugly gen3 rotors as soon as I can. Mine are equally fugly. When I hear back from Canadian Supercharger on the recoating cost I will let you guys know how much it runs.

Keep in mind that you live very close to their shop. Shipping will be far cheaper for you considering cross-border charges. Canadian Superchargers Florida shop doesn't do recoating.

There is a hidden cost as well. Recoating requires the rotors to be removed from the intermediate plate, and causes the bearings and seals to need replacement upon reassembly.

For someone in the States, it'* very likely far more cost-effective to simply find another set of rotors with intact coating.

I've been talking with Brian at Canadian Supercharger. He said they don't sell new rotors, but can do a Teflon coating. Get this.... I'm at a disadvantage shipping wise because he said they've got to go to the American shop to do it! Maybe the high Canadian dollar will help me recoup some of the shipping charges. He quoted me $100 US plus shipping.
