    WHY is so Dirty the hose goes to intercooler .RXT IS 260.

    After rebuilt the supercharger kit , (7 hours before ...and i mention that because i cleaned all the hoses that was at a normal condition ).so after 7 hours from rebuilt the sc kit
    i open to clean the intercooler and as i check the hoses i found very very dirty the inlet hose that goes to the intercooler from the supercharger .
    On the hose is something like oil and mud like clay .i haven't seen so dirty that hose before .why do you think that happens ???? is it possible because of too much grease on the supercharger when i insert it in the engine ????? thanks for your help .

    Sounds like the SC seal is leaking. Who did your SC rebuild?

    +1, sounds like SC seal, need to replace it with the Viton seal. OEM seal can't handle the heat.......

    More than likely your supercharger seal is just fine... especially after a recent rebuild.

    What you must remember is that oil enters the supercharger from the engines positive crankcase ventilation system. It's drawn in through the stock air intake.
    If the oil in your engine is over filled then it will make this problem worse.

    While this stock PVC system is good for emissions, it's terrible for performance. Oil coating your intercooler makes it less efficient. Also, your engine breathing these oily vapors will actually reduce the knock rating of your fuel. This is why it's important to use a catch can and eliminate the PVC system completely.

    Good point Jerry, I tend to forget most forum member still run the stock air intake systems without the catch can. After reading your post I remembered having the same oily film in mine before upgrading the charger.

    you are welcome!

    This is the catch can you will need

    I also recommend upgrading your air intake. This is a cheap universal kit.

    Like Dnielsen, I have been running a catch can so long I forgot about recirculated crap getting back in the intake, but he said the hose was dirtier only 7 hrs after the rebuild than they have ever been.
