Rogue was on it in the first reply.

Come to think of it, I didn't have any problems with EK98'* L36 either. Weird.

You'd think I would listen to a person that helps run a performance 3800 website

Yea, you want to usd the GM assembly adhesive in the corners rather thick as not only will this keep them in place but also stop notorious leak points.

update:

I am a idiot.














Car is running fine. It took me a couple of hours but I got the car back together. I was going to post pics of final port work and the LIM, But I can't figure out how to use a simple camera that I have used ten times before. So I only have pics of the LIM Inlet comparison.

I will give the verbal discreption of the rest. Cleaned up the runners on the LIM and smoothed the casting in the valley on the LIM. The Supercharger got more inlet porting (I really wanted to show those pic) and the bridge removed on the base of the SC. Needle bearings were also replaced as well. Computer is still learning all this new stuff so it is still adjusting. I am getting belt slip without the oversized tensioner ( shipping issue ) Anyway I will update as time goes on.

Did you pulley down?

If not.. check your tensioner, it may be time for a new one.

No the tensior is fine. The auto parts store had the wrong belt size in the computer so after playing musical belts. I got one size that was close but not perfect. The oversized tensioner will pick up the slack. I will get pics of the inlet once I put on the 99 TB.
