Default No supercharger, what a difference...

So this morning I'm taking my girlfriend to work, and I notice something a little different about the bonnie... it'* not moving like it should. I hopped on the freeway and really hit the gas, and nothing. I don't hear anything necessarily wrong. It sounds like it has the power, it just doesn't.

I get home and pop the hood, pretending to know what the hell I'm doing, since, well... I'm quite the mechanic noob. Lo and behold, the supercharger belt popped off. Quite the difference that baby makes.

That can be very bad depending on the year of your car. Can you put your year and trim level in your signature by editing your profile?

I'm aware of that, but if he had it in his sig, neither of us would have had to go digging for the info, right?
