Default Supercharger Removal and Install

Has anyone every has the pleasure of removing a supercharger and putting a new one on? I just bought a bebuilt supercharger from canadiansuperchargers.com for real cheap and I was wondering how hard they are to install. I hope not too hard. Its right out in the open and doesn't look hard but maybe there'* something I don't know about...Can anyone fill me in on this..Thanks

I can't see it being too hard. Plus my dad is a mechanic so if I get stuck he can help. I just like to do stuff on my own ya know? My car has 140,000 on it and i thought it was time to get a new SC. It only cost me $442 from canadiansuperchargers.com. Brian hooked me up and deathrat from bonneville intenstiy plugged the company. Any member of bonneville intensity can get this deal...Well worth it.

Your best friend will be a torque wrench. It should be easier than changing a starter or water pump. Are you getting a nosecone leak or grinding? These things usually outlast the car!

No grinding or leaks. I just figure its tired and time for a new one. The supercharger sounds perfectly fine. It just has alot of miles on it and has never been replaced to my knowledge. I was in on of my dad'* used cars, which was a 94 ssei with 80,000 on it, and the thing screwed. It felt much faster than mine and I figure its the supercharger thats holding me up. We'll see soon won't we?

By the way, do the rebuilt superchargers come with a new gasket that fits between the sc and the engine?

I don't know the answer to that one. I've seen two different procedures, and one calls for no gasket, while the other does. The Rat would be a good one to ask.....which we just did! He'll jump in here in an hour or two........wait, he'* not working til 12....that'* 11am west coast time........

Anyway, the dealer will be your only source for the gasket if it doesn't come with the blower.

Yeah the $442 I paid was the price provided I return my core to him. If I held on to my core, he would bill me for it. But I thought this was a good price.

Also, I went on ebay and noticed some guy from PA had a bored out supercharger for a 94-95 bonneville with a 2.5" pulley. He claims its all brand new and the BUY IT NOW price is $750. Do you think this is worth it or what? He claims it adds like 5 psi and like 40 HP or something ridiculous. Would this workk or is this supercharger just gonna break down?

By the way, thanks for getting something together for me rat.

Here'* the info again, just in case your don't get it in your E-Mail!

Supercharger: Service and Repair
REMOVAL
1. Disconnect negative battery cable.
2. Remove supercharger drive belt.
3. Relieve fuel system pressure
NOTE: J34730-1 Fuel Pressure Gauge or equivalent required.
a. Disconnect the negative battery cable, to avoid fuel pump turn on, if an
accidental attempt is made to start the engine.
b. Loosen the fuel filler cap to relieve tank vapor pressure.
c. Connect the fuel pressure gauge to the pressure connection. Wrap a shop
towel around the fitting while connecting the gauge to avoid spillage.
d. Install bleed hose into an approved container and open the valve to bleed
the system pressure. Fuel connections are now safe for servicing.
e. Drain any fuel remaining in the gauge into an approved container.
4. Remove injector shield.
5. Disconnect fuel supply and return hoses from fuel rail.
6. Disconnect vacuum hose from pressure regulator.
7. Disconnect fuel injector, IAC valve, TPS, MAF sensor, EGR, and boost solenoid

I'm in the middle of removing my */C right now and I'm kind of stuck, so pardon me for the thread hijack. :P I'm to the point of the boost control solenoid. I have all the bolts off, but the arm goes inside the */c which I haven't taken off yet. I wish I could show you guys a pic, but maybe someone will know what I'm talking about. Do I have to pull the */C to get the arm out? Or am I missing something.. Thanks in advance.
