Nothing special on the rotors, just blackened a bit, ends were bare, so I don't think they were coated. I knew that Floz painted the */c'* silver, just didn't know he was the ONLY one to do so.

No reason to go with floz either the price difference is minimal.




They even paid for shipping back on the core as well as the new one.

From what I understand they replace just about everything except the case.

According to a phone conversation I had with a senior Magnusson Engineer, they don't paint superchargers silver.

They are the authorized rebuilder/reseller under contract by Eaton. They use Eaton parts and specs.

I know when Ryan use to work at a performance shop that they got a few M62'* in a sealed plastic bag that were that color from GM. He thought that they were just from Magnuson but maybe they were just new GM ones. ? ? ?

Or rebuilt former Floz units. Floz has been around awhile. There are MANY of these units in circulation.

I do know that I still had the tag on the side of the unit, still intact and completely readable. I will get some more pics of it later today..I have the upper end all buttoned up now.

Having the tag intact, as long as it doesn't look like it was masked off is a good sign.
