The dealer told me they now have to send the program to GM. If GM doesn't find it stock, they void it. The dealer doesn't have any leeway when it comes to tuning anymore. You tune it, you lose it.

120k miles isn't a lot. I'll likely hit that next year. I'm now getting my third supercharger and only hope this one survives. I can't see this new flutter as being good for the supercharger.

Try bleeding the clutch. that helped for me. You can test that by doing fast reps for about 30 seconds then letting it sit for a bit. That should help and may even cure it.

+1. Had something hit it, just popped it back in by unscrewing the screws below it. No need to go through the wheel well.
