    i tried to search for it i couldn't find a thread on it. i've removed the intake hose and tried to turn the supercharger impeller (turns about 1/4 of a rotation, is that good?) or is it time to reshim/retorque?

    It should not turn at all with your fingers (Less the gear slop). Pull the SC for inspection.

    Shaft holding tool to torque the nuts. Gear holding tool to check slip.
