    Supercharger breaking in steps

    Ok Green Hulk members I need to know if there are any steps to breaking in a brand new Supercharger? Thanks for all of your help in guiding me to places to find a new one. I have been told my new one will be delivered in 3 to 5 business days. I have a race in 8 days and do not want to hurt ski. Our plan is to have it installed bye Monday and be out on the water Tuesday trying to break it in if neccesary. So we can be at Kentucky lake with full throttle 3 days later. Ryan

    Yes you need, shouldbreakit in

    You need you ride the ski for the 1st hr or so gently slowly increasing the boost and the engine and charge reach full temp.

    Because as the supercharger gets hot it expands internally. And the rotors are coated and they need to bed in.
    if you go full snot before it reachs full operating temps, you will get gauling of the rotors.

    so once you have reached operating temp full ....all the metals are full hot.
    then the internal part will slowly wear in on any high or contact point from manfacture.

    then you can start to give it shit !!

    As a racer you should have the belt tensioner. If not best you order it.
