This is not a bashing thread. So please don't make it out to be one. But I am disappointed.
So, I received the ported pieces via UPS on Monday and waited all week to install my additional "100 HP" mod. Everything looked good when received and the solid isolator that was installed took out all the shaft rattle (knew this by spinning the supercharger pulley).
I took everything apart today and transferred all sensors, injectors etc to the new blower. Installed the new blower by following Lingenfelter's step by step instructions. They have a nice write up with torque specs and everything.
Got everything reinstalled and attached and started the car up. Sounded great and decided to take it for a test drive just to make sure everything was good (without getting on it until properly tuned). I had no more driven 50 yards when I heard the worst belt screeching noise ever. I immediately turned around and pulled back into my garage and shut the car down. Popped the hood and smoke was coming out the front grill (not good). When I opened the hood, the supercharger pulley had turned grey and it was smoking... hmmmmmm. I tried to start the car again and it would not start. Seemed like something was dragging it down. I decided to remove the supercharger belt and test the outcome. The car started right up so I knew everything was installed properly etc (as the charger base and snout came assembled). I shut the car down and then tried to rotate the supercharger pulley. IT won't turn. It is seized.... UNBELIEVABLE!!!! The screeching noise was the belt being pulled across that pulley and it not spinning... also the reason I saw some melted belt on other parts of the motor.
So now I have a car that has a non-rotating supercharger on it. HORRIBLE!!! Car runs fine without the supercharger belt installed. There's a nice wasted day and money.
Tried calling Jesse but of course it is Saturday and the day before Easter so I knew that was a shot in the dark.
I've always been a big fan of his stuff and supported him, but this is very disappointing.
