    Pulling the SC on an 04 GTX ?

    Greetings--

    Any gotchas I need to know about when pulling and reinstalling the SC units on my 04 GTX ?

    I"m going to have the upgraded clutch/shaft installed.

    Thanks--

    Be prepared disconnect the J pipe from the manifold to move the waterbox to the rear about 7 inches. Pretty simple after that.

    Jay,

    Should any torx set have the torx bit you need for the S/C?

    and could someone take some pictures and post up specific instructions for removing the S/C...RIvas are kind of cutting corners...Thanks!

    AJ,

    Go to Sears and pick up a closed 1/4" ratcheting wrench. I think it is around $5 and is perfect to get that one bolt on the back of the S/C out of there. Any 1/4" socket will work, you don't have to use the torx if you don't have any. There are only 3 screws that hold the S/C in place, one on the back on two on the front.

    after you remove the mounting screws, and move waterbox back, assuming you have your air intake duct off, simply pull straight out, try not to twist or turn sideways, don`t want to rub the pto cover with the sharp teeth on the SC... Yeah, just like Jay said! ...PR...

    Just go to Advance or Auto Zone and they usually have them in little "ketchup" size packets at the front of the store for about $1. It says Anti-seize right on the packet. One of those little packets will last you a bunch of impeller changes along with taking care of the supercharger removals.
