Default Just got back from the dealer...

Well the mechanic there listend to my car as it ran, he then reved it up and let go and it makes a sound like its backfiring, only he said it sounds like a bearing in the supercharger because i described to him the sound that it makes in the morning..it makes kind of a cackling ticking noise (not of the vavle train).

So now all i wanna know is how much is a rebuilt super charger..hehe

The next time you go start up your car in the morning.. grab a piece of left over garden hose or similar.. and use it like a stethascope to pin point exactly which pulley or whereabouts that noise is coming from. I believe at worse case scenario ( pending on the severity of the */C if that is it ) you can make do with it for a period of time before fixing your */C.. just won't get that kinda boost result and may damage your other pulleys and stress and stretch the belt. We have a few */C pros here that can step in and fill you in on it more than I can.
