Default Last stand in the bonneville World.....

1.Rebuilt tranny
2. Rebuilt motor
3. NEw tensioner and pulley
4. new intake
5. NEw PCV
6. New spark plugs and wires
7.New belts
8.New oil pump
9.New Aftermarket tranny cooler
10.high flow cat
All of this installed and i woke up to my car making an awful noise. I have a video of it the car will barely go, has no power, There is like a clicking coming from what sounds like the Supercharger =o ... is it possible for the supercharger bearing to go and make all this noise and cause total loss of power. If you give it gas the tensioner goes crazy. When u take the belt off and spin the supercharger it is free spinning but heavy feeling? I am not good at explaining car problems so ask any questions or give me any advice at this point i might give up or should have already.......

it could be the coupler.
Is there any play with the belt off and trying turning it back and forth?

Never give up. There'* enough good advice to get it figured out
