    Question Checking SC slip?

    How does everybody check your SC slip. With the SC still in the the ski or pull it and check it. Seems like a pain in the ass to pull it evertime you want to check.

    I can get it out in 10 minutes now. I would not even bother doing it in the ski. I went ahead and spent the money on a nice vise, torque wrenches tools etc.

    Now that I sit here and think about it, mine was really hard to get out the first time, the bolt on the top gave me fits, but now I can get it out pretty fast. And if I checked it in the ski I would need to pull the valve cover to lock the timing chain. So 6 of one half dozen the other. I guess I will pull it next time I want to check it.

    troy you can jam a broom stick on the impeller. (i dont do it) it doesnt take much to make the chargers slip, about 9 ft lbs.

    i got the tools and all if you ever need them, you're more than welcomed to borrow them.

    if you do check slip while on the ski, always remember to turn it counter clockwise, cause the nut on the compressor wheel has left hand threads.
    and also you must turn the charger a fews turns to build up some friction and get an accurate reading,

    sears has their dial type torque wrenches on sale for like $24, with the lifetime warranty, not like their clicker type that only has 6 month

    Hey Eric, could you post a pic of your SC/engine area? I'd like to see how much cleaner your compartment is than stock. I can't imagine getting my SC out in 10 minutes.........But I'd like to

    I takes me about 10 minutes to take mine out also.
    but I have the thru hull exhaust and short waterbox,
    shortening the waterbox is what makes removing the s/c easier.

    On a 08 or newer RXP or PX you can just add 2-3 inches more of 4" hose between the mid-pipe and waterbox. Think it cost me 6 bucks for a 6-7" piece of 4" hose. Than you can get the SCer out pretty quickly.

    Thats a great idea. Where did you get the hose?
