Never tried it but...Does your charger not spin freely now? I can figure on some resistance but for how freely mine spins I personally am not concerned about losing .0025 Hp from the bearings. Maybe Guru Gadget can chime in if the stock SC'er bearings are of the same design or inferior quality.citrustaco said:hey guys,
Has anybody ever tried to do this:
What do you think? Is it a good Idea? I would think it is. Seems pretty simple to do.
Let me know what condition yours are in when you remove. Not to use you as a guinnea pig but someone has gotta do it first. I agree on the heat abuse they take. I laughed at the "special tool" you have to make. That's my kinda fun in the garage.citrustaco said:Mine are Ok now I think, but I will be changing nose cone and I was going to do this just as preventive maintenance. Bearings do have a lifespan and the charger is spinning fast and generating much heat so I was just thinking that maybe it would be a good Idea.
Off Subject-Dick ,what was your mileage and symptoms when your bypass failed? Thanks,mattDick Foster said:No it is an external part of the SC that has failed on me in the past. The actuator is the bit that bypasses the blower at off boost levels.
