I'm not concerned about the noise. I'm concerned about the lack of indicated boost and lack of balls.

A friend of my dads has a '97 GTP that was getting no boost after he had his headers installed. We helped him put in rockers and a few other mods and while he was here, we made sure all of the vacuum lines were routed properly, and taped up one with a crack in the end, and he got boost. It was that simple. It could easily be something to that affect. I would bet large sums of money that it isn't a major problem at all. I am thinking vacuum lines or boost controller. There isn't much else it could be. The boost controllers are DIRT cheap too. (like $7 IIRC) Replace that, and check all the vacuum lines, and it should be fine.

You know I don't recall hearing any SC whine at WOT, but then again I was too business paying attention to the gauge to see what was going on so I may not have noticed it.. If we come to an agreement, I'm gonna take the care out again to give it another once over. I do appreciate the help guys, and thanks for directing me here Freek. I'm feeling confident that it isn't anything major. So where is the best and least expensive place to get one of these BCS? What is IIRC?

Thanks

IIRC is if i remember correctly. The BCS you may be able to get from an autoparts store or at the very least a GM dealership.

well I spoke to the guy this weekend. We're trying to get together on price. Other then the Supercharger issue the car needs Brakes and rotors & a driverside mirror as his was cracked. So he said he wants to get an estimate on what it would all cost before negotiating.. so he should be calling me sometime this week or weekend. :keep fingers crossed:
