I meant that it will be something small and stupid, or something you would least expect, not big and expensive. But if the supercharger is the only thing you have not ruled out..........sorry, it is one of the rules of wrenching.

Not yet. I'll be heading out around 5 am tomorrow morning. I'll get to the hotel around 7 or 8 tomorrow night.

Oh, Ya I knew what you were saying. I was basically saying that if it isn't then the only thing left is the blower.

I think you're right though. I'm done snooping around. I'll let a tuner do their thing and go from there. If it can't be found with scanning and logging then I'm going to bounce my head off the wall. LOL

What I'd do is get it in the air, start it, and check for exhaust leaks around the headers and after that I guess I'd just have to live with it.

Yup.

My only disclaimer is the, while I don't see why anything would mess up, that I don't be held responsible if it were to.

My only real fear doing someone elses is that one of the tabs were to break. There is only one way to get it out and that's to pull straight out on it. But the possibility of a tab breaking is always there.

I don't forsee any problems.

I can literally do both in an hour I'm sure. But don't worry, I won't. I'm damn sure going to take my time. It's only two of the best cars on this site. Or anywhere else for that matter.

I want to be able to say I helped with your cars.

Spectator: Wow, did you see that custom black painted Camaro with all the trimming called Kaylee, and that bad ass Twin Turbo car they call Smaug?

PQ: Oh, ya, I helped build those cars.

Be careful on your drive up. We're getting wet here. Around John's home too.

I'm with you. I wiped it down tonight. That's it until I get to Indy. Thank God it's silver. Black I feel your pain there.

Randy- It was a pleasure to speak with you again. Please shoot me a PM next time you want to spend a Saturday working on your car. I'd be honored to drive down from Auburn and work on it with you.

Nope. Same problem still.

I suspect the other is leaking as well. I"m just too swamped right now to change it out.
