    should my SC whistle?

    I see videos of guys after they instal rear air and their superchargers whistle. Mine doesn't I have an S3 wheel and front housing. It's been in for only a couple of hours and washers are good.

    depends on your intake. if its a 4" front intake you prob wont hear it. both of my buddies with riva 3" intake whistle. One switched to a 4" fizzle and it stopped.

    The S3 isnt nearly as loud as the x charger. I had both with a rear air. Youll barely hear the S3. The x charger is louder than my riva waterbox/thru hull

    You should hear and ET wheel. Sounds like a crossing guard whistling at someone about to get HIT by a bus. Such a head turner!!

    The rubber of the kanaflex will dampen the sound...but if you use the Riva rear air, or their power filter, it will resonate off the hard plastic...and that is the sound you hear.

    I can hear the charger on both of my skis while idling around. Ive heard some videos of the rear air set-ups and they are much louder.
