Default No me gusta nada<--- i dont like at all

No me gusta nada, spanish for i don't like at all. Which describes my car right now. As some of you may know it was making some noises and i thought it to be a bearing problem. Got the parts, put them in, put the supercharger back on, started it up(first try too) and it still made the noise. I was pissed. Well there isn't much else i can do right now, being i don't have the right tools and im not a big mechanic. So, i am going to take it in to the shop when i get the chance. Let me know what you think.

Describe the noise again. What side of the engine, AC on or off, etc.

2 things come to mind if it isn't the SC. Idler puller or Harmonic balancer. Take one belt off at a time and do it again. Could be the alt or ps pump, or even the wp too. Just don't run it for more than a minute with the SC/WP belt off.

Easy to narrow down. Save some bucks.

Well, me and my mom took the car to a shop by my house which was reccamended to us by one of my friends dad who is a truck puller and knows more than i ever will about cars. We got there, the guy told us he had a ssei before and loved it. Best car he ever had. So he took a look at it pulled some stuff off turned it on/off. Turns out its the harmonic balancer. $250ish to fix it, parts, labor, and all. Oh boy was i relieved, i started to think it was rod knock....
