Can you ditch the charger?
Just thought if ask the question, as some of you know I'm just waiting to pull the charger as I suspect it's failed and damaged my engibe
So I was thinking if I can save the engibe and if the sc is to blame is it possable to just remove the charger and run the ski natural asperated?
Its just i only purchased the ski to use for towing us wakeskating and wakeboarding so only need speeds of 20-25mph really.
Just thought I'd ask

I don't believe you can. But rebuild the SuperCharger with the latest kit, and you'll be fine as long as you stick to the rebuild requirements (Every 2 years, or 100 hours).

Compression is very low to run in naturally aspirated form...... 8.4:1

Ah I think I'll just leave it supercharged and rebuild it every winter just to make sure!
if if it was just a case of unbolting it and swapping the Ecu and injectors then I would have done it but if the compression is lower then I'll just leave it and keep on top of maintenance.

i have a spare 215 charger for my rxp i swap every year..
it generally clocks up 80hrs+ a year.
both have 08 and 09 rebuild kits.
we just replace bearings and viton seals + check and adjust slip. neither charger has been fully rebuilt with around 200hrs on each of them, and its not ridden gently.
Converting rxp to turbo next year as its do much less maintenance, better fuel economy and much better performance.
