    Stage 3 sc

    Just looked at the instructions on the stage 3 theres a warning :

    Compressor surge can cause impeller to hit housing if blow-off valve is not used to release excess boost pressure that engine connot process.

    on that it seems its not all bearings fail.

    I've heard touchdowns are common with the S3 sc, but it's an easy fix. I think there is a thread about a recent one.

    What causes a touchdown ? Now you guys got me worried with the touch down thing. I thought the sc would be bullet proof if i changed the metal washers and ceramic bearings?

    gtxscrider i believe we have decided its the METAL BEARINGS in combo with an S3 or better supercharger wheel! the KID refered u to the thread that describes the situation and what we THINK MOST LIKELY caused the TOUCHDOWN! sounds like u have your situation completely under control! good luck!
