    ''Oil In SuperCharger'' ''Water In SuperCharger''

    I'm hearing all this talk about oil and water getting in the SC and haveing to remove the SC to drain. Why can't there be a drain valve installed on the bottom of the SC to get rid of the water & oil? Drilling a hole on the bottom at the lowest point of the SC and installing a valve that can be manually turned should work. Anyone else agree/disagree?

    The first thing that came to my mind was it would not be a good thing to drill a hole in something that thrives on pressure. That would be a weak spot for air to leak from or even blow out of. It could end up slowing the machine down or worse...

    I am in no way savy about this ski yet, so I could be wrong.

    That sounds like a good idea. I was wondering the same thing. Pulling the intercooler frequently is not something I want to do. If I can just stick my hand in there, turn a valve and it starts to drain that would be great.

    Why not a drain plug with some plumbers tape. Should work ok. Only problem I see is you will need to put it on one end on the bottom and raise Ski so it will drain.
