    As far as i know there is no problem with the s/c bearings, havent read too much about any failures, my s/c went for 60+hours on the factory bearings before i rebuilt it..
    And as for your second question there is no air filter on the factory intake system, and it is very restrictive. Most people go with a 3" riva air or 4" front air intake for a little extra oomph

    man i hate how unreliable this super chargers are, increrible how a little bearing can burn your engine in a few seconds. basicablly to be on the safe side one must rebuilt the charger every 20 -30 hours.
