    Supercharger question

    Can someone explain what the small nicks on the outside of the barrel around the nut on the intake side of the SC are from. I've noticed some have none and some have up to three. Please see pick.

    Can you get a better shot.
    Will the 'nicks' deep enough to catch your fingernail? hmmm

    The ones I've seen are all the same. About a quarter moon in shape, 1/4 long from top to bottom, and about 1/8 inch deep.

    I'd also like to know if they nicks/notches jeopordize the integrity of the SC or impeller. It works like a champ, but I don't want to be running a ticking time bomb.

    My first thought was for balance. I assume they're done by BRP during the manufacturing process?
