: : Peter, I dont quite understand what happened...You mean the engine fan's bearings went, and caused the fan to blow up? If so, why is the Supercharger at fault? Wouldnt it be the fault of the fan, which is a bMW piece, no? OR , are you talking about the supercharger blades? Please clarify...
you want to look at, once you calm down, is how much collateral damage was really done. Like was mentioned, it could be running rich just because of the larger injectors. Or, it could be the engine software, now that the blower is not functional. If one valve only needs to be replaced, I dont think that alone is $1500, is it? Maybe, it wont be all that bad...Also, someone needs to determine what caused the bearing to go which caused the impellor to fly apart. I mean, did the oil line get clogged? It must have been something drastic, yet unusual, as I've never heard of a Vortech blower failing...Theyre generally bullet proof. Please advise...As an owner of a Vortech system, albeit from Dinan, I'm following your case with interest.
