i tried lookiong it up in the chiltons but it doesnt show any Series II supercharged stuff. I described the piece already. its a black 2 piece with a sping inside it laying on the supercharger. i think its the boost control valve and the inside has an orange ring

You talking about the round black thing just under the red thing in that pic? It should not be cracked open. Get a new bypass valve actuator.

Steve, that actuator is SUPPOSED to change with engine RPM'*. You're not being very descriptive here. Please take a picture of the part in the car, and a closup of the damage.

Don't replace anything on that car until you know what it'* called, what it does, and how to troubleshoot it. We could be thinking about two different parts right now. And you're going to blow alot of money on this car.
