    Pull the hose off the charger and see if you can spin the wheel with your fingers. If you can spin the wheel its most likely time to pull the supercharger for further inspection

    just pulled hose of the s/c i can spin it but its not easy. what a did find is a shit load of oil in the 4 in kanaflex right at the inlet of s/c, i am talkin puddles of oil in each valley of the kanaflex. i am thinking this oil going thru the intake is robbing me of power!

    oil before the supercharger usually comes from the breather in a stock intake system. Since you have the Kanaflex I am guessing you didn't hook the breather back into it so that would mean the oil is coming from the supercharger seal.

    any seal is better than what you have now but I would use the Viton for sure! Since you have to pull the sc anyway, check the slip etc. You may just need to reset it but we won't know til it comes out
