    Supercharger rebuild questions 2007 RXT

    I have a 2007 RXT with 52 hours on an upgraded stock SCer(RIVA metal clutch washers). I have had a rough idle misfire and lack of RPM's and slower top speed. I had it checked out by a local mechanic and he couldn't find any issues.

    But I was reading through posts and read the 100hour rebuild or 2 years .this is due to the plastic cages holding the steel bearings on the Scer. Does the newer SCer (after 2007) have ceramic bearings? and do they still fall into the 2 year category for rebuild due to plastic cages getting brittle?

    Does the x-charger have to be rebuilt within the 2 year protocol or is it built stronger?

    No ceramic bearings in the newer SCers or OEM rebuild kits, all 215/255/260 SCers need to be rebuilt every 2 years or 100 hrs. Check the slip on your charger, if its good that's not ur problem.

    I just pulled the SC intake tube and tried to turn impeller with my fingers and its nice and snug. But I will be sending it in for a rebuild just to have piece of mind. If the washers and/or bearings failed the impeller would be either seized or would spin freely correct?
