Please very clearly (and with great detail) give us a rundown of your actual symptoms. Superchargers don't 'go bad'.

Moving to the proper section.

Sorry :-/

I really dont know exactly what to say about it except you dont feel the power nor do you ever hear the supercharger. Honestly for the most part Im just going with what my dad said that its "Blown" but I really dont know. If theres anything else you need to know about it then ask and Ill answer as best as I can

What does your boost gauge read at WOT?

Your Dad is wrong. Superchargers don't 'blow' unless you're speaking in terms of them producing boost.

There are parts that wear out, but they VERY RARELY fail, and if it did, you'd KNOW it. Trust me.

In stock applications, you aren't supposed to hear it. Power can be limited by many factors besides the SC'* condition.

What is the peak boost you see on the gauge at WOT? What does the gauge read at idle? What does it read in D with the foot on the brake? Does it make any noises at idle?
