    Purchasing 04' RXP how to tell if sc is bad?

    I have read these forums and am curious what is the rpm these should run at. I understand if it is running around 7500 max I might have an issue and if it tops out low which might be hard to test if conditions are poor. Also would it be a good idea to change the oil before I buy to see if there are shavings in the oil? I figured if so big deal I only spent a little compared to a failed motor. Only other thing I can think of would be smooth building acceleration, and sound however I have never heard one but do drive a supercharged car so I have an idea somewhat. What other ways can I use to determine if there is a sc problem with the ski?

    The best way is to see if the washers are gone is to remove the hose and try to spin it by hand. If it turns easily, then it's gone.

    No problem - and I think I should have said "if it turns easily by hand" as in spins near freely. Post up your results...
