    i noticed last night that i heard a thumping/rattle coming from my motor...when i got home i popped the hood and narrowed the noise down to the supercharger.....:confused: i took it around the block today and it was still doing it. this is not a regular sound that you can just look over its like it almost shakes the steering wheel. Im positive that the noise is coming from the supercharger. does anybody know what this is, i had it installed about a month or so ago and i purchased it brand new from my local dealer and they installed it. HELP????:confused:

    don't do anything to it but take it to the dealership, so you don't avoid the warranty.

    Good to hear. The ONLY thing I could think of that would cause it to do that is if the rear bearings went out completely.
