I'm not going to give you advice based on your warranty/replacement issues. It'* up to you to weight the risks. But most units you get will have over 100k on them from a wrecker. Ask for MONEY per the warranty so you have the current unit as a core. See where that leads you.

As far as converting to a Gen3 setup, 4 have tried. Only one so far has been TOTALLY succesful. The other 3 have had lingering tuning issues. In the long run, it'll cost you alot more than just the SC to make it work.

You can remove the nosedrive by removing the tensioner/accessory bracket, and thus won't have to remove the injectors or break the seal between the */C and the lower intake manifold.

I have done both ways. None are quick and easy, but to me, removing the tensioner bracket is easier and don't have to break any gaskets.

Well, you do have to pull the tubes that run into the motor and go to the heater core, but I've just been using RTV there...

F14, your LN3 setup is quite different than a true L67. I can tell you from doing this SEVERAL times, and on more cars than must the two I own, that the quickest and EASIEST method by far is to remove the entire supercharger (92-95 ONLY).

He would have to remove the entire assembly anyways in order to inspect the rotor bearings wouldn't he? I agree the easiest way IS to take off the entire */c assembly. I also agree that a NEW nosedrive should be swapped in if at all possible. I myself have a "non-BC-approved supercharger" that unfortunately came with the car when I bought it, so I am waiting for the day when it decides to crap the bed, and I will be going to CSC for one of their units.

Where are you going to get another supercharger from? There are many on Ebay for a good price, although we know fo some sellers that are out there to make money and provide a poor product at best.

The LIM or lower intake manifold is directly below your supercharger.
