It could happen, but I still have to rebuild the snout, which I'm not sure how hard it will be.

Plus I have to find money for a coolant elbow and new vacuum lines. . .

This might help with rebuilding the snout. https://www.gmforum.com/t285266/

The coolant elbows are like $5 at autozone. And a pack of generic vacuum lines are also at autozone, I think those are like $10.

Got the supercharger back together and on the motor, belts back on and the new coolant elbow in place. Tomorrow the car will be back on the road!

I ma waiting for some epoxy to dry in the throttle body right now. . . . No pics now but MAYBE later, its just some work around the MAF hump, but should help a little.

Here are some shots of the supercharger discharge.

Getting the pulley off for the snout rebuild.

Ya thats sparkling grape juice, since I'm 19 and my Girlfriend is 18 its the drink of choice
Hopefully things go a little smoother tomorrow and everything goes back together easily!

I will give a full butt dyno report once I get the car one the road for a few days.

Great work. I've found removing or installing a pulley is much easier when the snout is mounted on the case and clamped down. I just installed a pulley today and it fought me every step of the way.

Trent (Rockstar04) just got the tool tightened down then started heating it up with the torch and it went right on and off.

The supercharger and the car are getting a full synthetic oil change today, with a new Mobil One oil filter from ZZP.
