    Supercharger : rebuild and ET-127 vs X charger?

    I have an older RXT 215 and it has low hours but I'm concerned about the bearings( plastic cages getting brittle) so I was going to send my SCer to Jerry for a rebuild. But then I started looking at the ET-127 and the 42lb fuel injectors. So doing some costs......
    rebuild service- $436USD
    ET-127 - $399USD
    42lb fuel injectors - $200 USD

    * not sure if a RRFPR would be required? if it is ,an additional $385USD.

    or would it be better to go with an X charger and the 42lb fuel injectors?

    As well......are the fuel injectors a basic plug-n-play......disconnect the old ones and reinstall or do I have to have it changed in the ECU?

    The ET127 sounds nasty and very reliable. Its all plug and play.

    With either the X charger, or the ET127 you would need the Bosch 42 lb injectors. They are plug and play and work well with the stock ECU.

    My preference is the X charger over an 215 supercharger upgraded to ET127. The X charger with its larger diameter impeller makes more power, plus, it's upgradable in the future for even more power

    That’s interesting Jerry,I prefer the ET127. I believe it accelerates harder than the X charger

    Its also a lighter wheel and has that cool chirp/whine to it! I believe it puts out .5 psi more then the Xcharger? I ran one over 100 hours with zero issues.

    No need for an external intercooler. I would highly recommend replacing your double gear wheel bolts with ARP (flywheel bolts) It can rip away the 6 six stock bolts.

    Yes he's referring to the flywheel bolts. To get the full benefit of the upgraded supercharger, you need an ext IC.

    Thanks for the insight and advice.....I'm leaning on going the X charger route. shipping costs to Canada should be about $70USD?
