: Super Charger Noise

Being a new owner I have a question, is it normal for the Super Charger to rattle at idle? Mine makes a racket at idle. This is the first roots type blower I have had but it sounds like a vortech I had on an old mustang. You hardly hear it in the car but outside sounds like an alternator with a bad bearing. I hate going to a Dealer for answers. Thanks in advance:confused:

What's ironic is the isolator is supposed to prevent one type of noise (gear lash) but ends up producing another. It's pretty weak to contend it's "normal."

Beautiful car. I about gasped when I saw your keys sitting on the obsidian.
That stuff scratches very easily.
