    Supercharger Failed

    I recently rebuilt my Supercharger on my 2005 GTX Limited from a kit from SBT. I was very careful when doing it making sure that my work area was clean, using the correct thread lock and tightening everything to the correct torque. After about two hours of use, I lost power and could here a scraping noise from the supercharger. When I got home I removed the supercharger to see the damage. Apparently the shaft was sheered off just below the impeller bolt. Obviously I need to buy a new unit but does anyone have an idea what would have caused this to happen?

    It almost looks like a casting flaw in the center of the bolt,
    Over torqued maybe,

    obviously the end of the shaft broke at the threads...How much torque do you torque that nut down to????This is also why when it comes to a Scer i wont skip out on price and use OEM only....

    That nut was torqued to 22 ft pounds. Exactly as specified in the instructions.
