    Finished the Supercharger installation. Had a few issues along the way I thought I'd share. When we went to start it the first time it ran really bad. wouldn't idle at all, it was most happy when the RPMs were up around 2000. Checked the vacuum connections many times and felt they were all good. We had installed injectors, plugs and wires so we swapped out those to see if that would change things, but it didn't. Swapped out the IAC. After doing a lot of diagnosing we found a large vacuum leak where I had installed the Teflon plate from LCE in between the TB and the SC. Removed it and now it runs great. It may be the lower bolts that mount the TB. Noticed that they are bottoming out in the holes. The factory intake has through holes but the SC holes are blind. Going to put shorter bolts in and see if the Teflon plate can go back on. Once we had the vacuum leak we went for a test drive and it started running rough and continued to get worse. It threw a code, misfire on cylinder 4. swapped that plug and no more problems. I will order a replacement plug.

    I do have DENSO Iridium IK22 Spark Plugs, it was one of them that failed. Need to buy a new one to replace it. For now I put back in one of the stock Denso plugs that were in it till the replacement comes.

    Thanks for the suggestion but I think I'll just buy one replacement for the Denso Iridium that is bad. Seems like a waste to buy all new ones when everything is running well. I knew about the NGKs, but went with the Denso.

    I just started having knock sensor trouble again.. after every shift my truck was pulling timing. so I figured out my truck has destroyed another denso knock sensor. I put a 1990-1999 Herko Gm knock sensor in it now. Its working way better. I had to weld an adaptor for it (I took a big nut the sensor threaded into and welded it to a bolt that threaded into the block. then made an adaptor into wire harness.) I mounted it right next to the starter above the oil pan where there are some empty bolt holes. edit* both knock sensor wires are spliced together running to one gm knock sensor ...WHY DOES THE SUPERCHARGER RUIN OEM DENSO KNOCK SENSORS?

    I created this new sticker to replace the one under the hood.
    Accurate for my 2001 2WD, seems there are quite a few different vacuum routings for other models.

    just did some pulls on the way to work and the gm knock sensor is letting the computer push more timing then the denso

    Did you buy them from the dealership?
    There are fake ones in Denso boxes every where

    can anyone hint as to why the poor gas mileage, i replaced the spark plugs to FR7, fuel filter, air filter and while it runs outstanding i get around 140-160 miles to a tank. Now when i reset the ECU, the first tank i get about 260 miles out of a full fill up?? anyone thanks

    it was cold here today and my truck was rippin up the mountain. got to work and as the truck was idleing it sounded like the supercharger was eating itself super loud metal on metal grinding. took the belt off and the coupler has a massive amount of play and the nosebearing wasn't locked up but felt nasty spinning it. i swapped back to my stock intake plenum. do you think its just ate its bearings? nosecone and rotorpack bearings? rotors can't contact eachother as long as the gears are intact right? there is only 12k miles on supercharger, ......I'm pretty sure my desert trip in 111 degree heat with the 2" pulley + the oil leak and 90- 100mph for long hwy stints cooked my bearings. here is the kit i got to rebuild.

    man NA is super slow, the supercharger really wakes the truck up.

    If you don't check your supercharger oil level or if it is leaking through the rotor seals the bears will go south.
    When did you check your oil level last?
    If the rotor pack bearing fail the rotors can hit each other. 12k on a new supercharger?
    Warranty time?
    Superchargers don't fail at 12k if rebuild was done correctly,
    If its 110 degrees you definitely don't want to push it at full boost tho.

    there was 12k miles on it total. it has never been rebuilt. i was checking the oil level daily because of the leak. i think my trip in july did more damage than i thought. ive been trying to get my monitors to clear for smog so the last month I have been back on the 2.37 pulley.
