Willwren, how many blowers have you "personally" removed from these engines? And how many have you personally inspected the gasket on?

To say that you have seen one of thousands fail is not a very accurate statement if you are going off of the forum. You have only removed a hand full of blowers...not thousands.

The gaskets that I have seen blown out are on cars that run fine, the only reason that I work on them is because they have coolant leaks or blower noises.

I've been working on GM vehicles for over 12 years now, I think I have removed more blowers than you.
Motorhead, you don't want to go down that road. I think I've seen far more superchargers on this Forum than you have in your career. But this isn't the place for a battle of wits and experience.

You suggest a 'blown' outlet gasket. I can tell you from THOUSANDS of cars here we've only seen ONE. If you have them that often at your dealership, perhaps it'* the quality of the work or mis-diagnosis.

Again, let'* stick to the COMMON possibilities, shall we?

The thing is, the vehicle owner does not even know the gasket is blown. It causes no drivability issues. The only complaint MIGHT be that it lacks power, but even then it would be a slight effect on the supercharged engine...not very noticeable.

I wish I could tell you a way of diagnosing this problem, but because it affects engine "run ability" so very slightly, I can not tell you a true method of diagnosing this gasket blow out condition.

Motorhead, how about we try to troubleshoot the EASIER SIMPLER things first before we start suggesting something we've only seen ONCE on this Forum, that would require a teardown to diagnose?

I think we've proven ourselves thousands of times in our ability to troubleshoot cars remotely. It'* a little different than having the car at your dealership where you can simply tear it apart at the customer'* expense.

We try to SAVE our members money.

When I accelerate now, my boost gauge actually stays in one place. Before I replaced it, The gauge would drop right after accelerating. As far as it goes for the o-rings, are you talking about the injector o-rings? Yes, I did replace those. MY charger does have a little clank in it when its idleing though.

You should have replaced your coupler while you had it off the car. The o-rings are the coolant bypass o-rings, not the injector rings. Two of them inside the big outlet gasket.

Did you replace them? (I hope you did, they're really not re-usable).
