    2008 FX SHO Supercharger rebuild parts

    Hi everybody, need help for a friends SHO. His supercharger has a bearing noise but is not necessarily broken. Has less than a hundred hours. He is just being nit picky and wants to change some parts since he has not used it for almost a year.
    I told him buying an assembly (6S5-141A0-05-00) doesn't really need to be done since does not need the case and other items.
    What can you suggest for bearings, clutches etc?
    I have seen the R&D rebuild kit (PT#612-2502
    Is there anything else i should consider buying and changing?
    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Stock charger?? Check shaft play, best thing to do is take it apart and check it out. Theres many noises in a supercharger not all noises are bad.

    Without taking it apart it is hard to tell what is or is not bad.

    Yes it has stock charger. Based on your opinion, what are the maintenance replacements to be done assuming our local mechanic has advised to change the whole assembly but this is the easy repair. I don't need a new casing etc, so for those with experience what should i change for peace-of-mind?

    There are no roller bearings in the supercharger there are 2 brass bushing bearings, so if you are hearing bearing noise might want to check the clutch.

    If the bushings wear out the impeller starts rubbing the housing makes a screeching sound and you start losing boost.

    If you use the rebuild kit there is some machining required to allow the new parts to fit correctly.
