    I can turn the supercharger wheel by hand

    I think I know the answer to this but, that means the charger is FUCT right? I've been chasing some vibrations and I was exploring something wrong with the pump and/or wear ring and my ski doesn't seem as fast as it was. I took off the intake boot for the supercharger and I found oil in the intake boot and oil in the inlet bore of the charger and I can turn the impeller wheel with my fingers. It doesn't freewheel but with slight effort, I can spin it.
    Is it broke?

    Sounds like the clutches are toast.

    Probably the reason the noise I was hearing here:

    and then the corresponding reason why it wouldn't go after I put it back together here:

    The oil is normally from crankcase vapors...the wheel should NOT spin by hand. Warranty?

    Nope, I got it used with no warranty. It's a 2008. An X-wheel would fit in there too wouldn't it? Would I have to mod anything else? Guessing the computer would have to know that there's more boost?

    The X wheel won't fit in a 215 housing. If you add an X charger, you'll need 42# injectors at a minimum..... considering everything else is stock?

    I was back in there trying to guage to describe how tough it is to turn and it turns fairly easy about 1 full turn and then it gets tough to move but I can still move it but just barely. It will then spin back the other way easy until it gets to the same spot and then same thing. IDK. weird.

    Should be completely stationary with no free motion to be able to spin it with my fingers at all correct?
