    2003 GTX super charger rebuild issue

    My buddy just rebuilt his charger and he says his rpms are down quite a bit and his problem is he thinks he installed the 255 - 260 supercharger rebuild kit on his GTX 185. What would be the outcome if he has installed the wrong kit.

    I know the gears have different number of teeth, so I would assume it would grind/not mesh. I would check the slip and wether it is turning. I have seen rebuilds done wrong and the charger shaft does not turn/doesn't make boost

    if he installed a 215/255/260 kit then the supercharger is spinning slower than it should, hence the reason he has low RPM

    You cannot physically install the supercharger with the wrong gears.

    You sure can!
    You can install a 215/255/260 supercharger into a 185 ski (16 tooth gear)

    Don't let him ride the ski again until it's done. The gear lash is not correct and he is at risk damaging his flywheel gear. This is the rebuild kit he will need

    He could just swap the gear for the 185 so he doesn't have to have it all rebuilt again.
