    Just had a code pop up on mine after feeling it misfire while driving surface streets. I ended up taking it to my mechanic and changing a coil pack. It happened again and the code read that the 4th cylinder was misfiring. Replaced the fuel injector OEM and haven't had a problem since.

    Does anybody know how far you're supposed the press the rotors into the two nosecone gears? When I rebuilt my supercharger I was able to press them all the way to the point of touching the plate they're attached to but that doesn't seem right.

    I don’t know the exact measurement but it’s pretty close. The tolerances are tight and you don’t want any slop with the rotors. I’d get them right up to the plate but not touching.

    Anyone else notice a bump in price for the 5VZ SCers? They're no longer $2999 but instead $3499 on URD.

    MY Charger has approx 100,000 miles on it and doesn't seem to make any weird noises still feels pretty peppy and i've always made sure it had oil in it. I've siphoned it out and refilled a few times in this period. I'm looking to swap my SC over to another 3.4L. Should i send off to have rebuilt or just save the money and rock on??

    Rebuild it while it's off, it will need it soon if it doesn't right now. Better to do it now while it's more convenient than to have to remove it off your truck later when it might not be so convenient.

    I used to run those octane boosters as well but I learned that 99% of them (almost all of them you see for sale in gas stations especially) barely contain enough octane to make any kind of difference in a full tank. You'd need to put a dozen of them in to raise the octane by one point (from 91 to 92, for example), which of course would be way more expensive than it's worth.

    There are a couple octane booster brands that you can buy online that do work well. I can't remember the name of the one that was recommended to me once but I'll see if I can find it.

    Just fill it to the bottom of the fill port like you would with diff oil. I think mine took around 7 oz but don't quote me on that. I just remember having a little leftover in the second bottle.
