    I would have sent it in but this one is my fault. I think anything would have failed being pushed as hard as I pushed it in those extremely hot conditions. I gotta take my lumps on this one. hopefully its just bearings. Thats what it feels like anyways... I have this hill by my house I always test the truck out on . I can just hit triple digits on it with the supercharger, now that its back to stock my truck barely went over 70 up it.

    @Milor. If you have access to a warranty it might be worth sending it in even though you may feel at fault. The trip through the hot desert may have just aggrieved something that was already an issue from the factory and simply caused it to fail sooner. If the warranty doesn't want to fix it then you can do it on your own like planned. It might be worth it in the long run

    i pulled my supercharger apart and foundout my nosecone was fine and the bearings felt good. the coupler needs replaced as its holes are wallowed out.charger1.5.jpg I think the problem was in the rotorpack bearings. the left rotor was eating into the rear housing of the supercharger

    I'm going to call magnuson mon morning. upon further inspection it looks like the front rotorpack bearings are toast allowing the rightside rotor to move enough to hit the case.. If they don't take care of me I'll order a new rotorpack and toss it in. who has the best prices on rotorpacks?

    Did you install this unit from brand new? How many miles are on it?

    Do you think Magnuson will honor their warranty if this unit has been disassembled?

    I bought it october 2019 brand new. there is about 12k on it. I don't see why they wouldn't with it disassembled. you can see it is theirown gasketmaker they use on the face surface. so its never been re assembled. I took it apart thinking it was a nosecone problem that I could fix myself. tough break... maybe now is a good time to get it ported? definitely going methanol when it goes back on.

    Does anyone have experience with Jon Bond Performance, or any other SC rebuilding company? My 3RZ-FE Alpine supercharger is due for a rebuild before I tune it up for more boost. It's developed a new whine that changes with RPM (different from the obvious SC normal whine) and I'm thinking the bearings are going out.

    My snout is leaking oil too, so that can be an issue. I rarely see any threads or support on the four cylinder superchargers, so I'm wondering if anyone has had experience rebuilding these Alpine superchargers, the cost associated, and the experience they had. I believe it has the same Eaton blower as the Magnuson v6 iteration. I'm running a 7.5 PSI pulley, and with a tune on an AEM FIC 6, I am getting 7 PSI peak and 5-6 average at WOT. Looking to go up to a 10 PSI pulley after the rebuild.

    High Speed Lab rebuilt my supercharger in 2020.
    They took 10 months to do it.
    Its been a bit more than 10,000 miles since then and so far it’s working fine.
    I’m running a stock pulley with the URD 7th injector kit.

    Just sent mine out to them about a month ago. Already have had quote come back for necessary parts for replacement and a repaint. Expecting it to be done in a month or so. Communication isn't always the best with them but I've heard nothing but good things about them. So not too worried about it taking forever. Was also a very fairly quoted rebuild IMO.

    To those of you running the NGK 92400 plugs, did you leave them at the .031'' gap they come set at? They look very fragile and difficult to change the gap on.

    Is your engine happy with the .031'' gap?
