    Super Charger impeller bent

    What do you guys think could have caused this? The ski was overfiled with oil and stoped the riva ic up. It would only turn 7700 rpm's. Could oil have done this? Its out of a 04 rxp stage 2 ski with metal washers and ceramic bearings. At the time we did not have a catch can,but now do. Can this be fixed or do we need a new impeller? We removed the bov just to be sure we had no leaks, then we removed the sc and found this. Also there is some scratches where the sc goes in.

    I would replace the impeller. As it is, it will be out of balance and cause problems if ran that way. If you didn't have an open intake, and suck something in, it is very possible that oil was the cause. It looks like oil built up inside in the picture.

    Very possible that the oil was the cause, or maybe even some water injestion. I doubt it could be a bearing failure because when a bearing goes, the shaving would be everywhere and the housing would be damaged as well. What ever it was, was very minimum. Still enough to affect the flow. I suggest changing it out, perhaps Vortech could have it repaired, its a thought. Good luck with outcome.

    Either way after a touchdown the brgs have to come out! If you had to post to ask you obviously don't know what I'm trying to tell you!

    Post Do this...

    First open the SC and look if any bearing damage.. Go with the ceramic bearing and washers .. if you don't have them installed yet. change the housing face .. Like what i did in my 04 RXP it was a little wear out and go with Green charger if you SC impeller damaged.
