I have seen Floz superchargers with and without painted over bolts and PCV covers. Mostly without.

That is not an indicator.

You wouldn't be the first to get a 'rebuilt' Floz unit with a bad coupler. ZZP cut him off on the replacement couplers some time ago (back in '02) and he was in the hurt locker for awhile. It seems he shipped a few with bad ones before he found another source.

A coupler SHOULD go 75-100k with the average driver on a stock pulley. The lifetime goes down proportionally with the weight of your foot and the diameter of your pulley drop.

For instance, my ZZP coupler is pushing 3 years old. It'* just starting to rattle now. That'* an early death, but you can guess which car it'* in.

With two L67'* in the house, I keep a spare handy.

the engine is half the size!!!

if you put a 2.2" pulley on that it might max out the kr pretty quick.

Yup. Higher efficiency and a redesigned (*-port) inlet. Same design as the Gen5 M90.
