    Wow, Supercharger question.. saltguys

    So i bought this supercharger off the classifieds.. I just received it today.. The metal washers and bearings look and feel great...

    I further inspected it, And found a white substance inside that is easly wiped off.. IS THIS SALT residue...? I'm a freshwater guy, I never seen anything like this! thats insane!

    Also, The front cover comes off self explanatory So i can clean it all up.. what are the torque specs? You guys just use regular permatex to seal it back up?

    Thanks guys

    Jaron

    No worries.. Just wipe it off and you'll be ready to go!! Salt air leaves residue behind

    yes... especially running rear air intake... keep the blow by hose plumbed in!! and fog after every use.. works well
