our M3s, whehter its putting out 7 psi, 10 psi, or 20 psi, it shouldnt matter. Because,these blowers are warrantied for a max of approx 24 psi!!! Shawn, I suppose its possible that the small oil line leading to the blower got clogged, causing a bearing to overheat and fail. I noticed in my Vortech instructions downloaded from their web site, they request that approx every 3K miles, the oil fitting at the blower be blown out with compressed air. Yet, in the Dinan instructions, and, I assume the RMS as well, there is zero mention of this maintenance task, and noone at Dinan, at least, has ever heard of it...Now, I suppose its quite possible that in their implementation, its just not necessary...But, I wonder.....Yea, I guess if it were really a problem, we'd hear alot more about these things failing ...Fact is, this is the first Vortech system on an M3 I"ve ever heard of having problems!
