    Metal SC washers longevity?

    How much life can I expect out of the washers before its time to instal a new set. The set I have are going on 90 hours and have been shimmed once.

    Renne, Jerry said the whole sc should be rebuilt at about 100 hours. I think I remember him saying to check slip every 50 hours and shim when necessary.

    Yep, thats my recommendation. By 100 hours there is lots of wear on the gear and the other parts.

    Yuppers. I'm going to have my whole SC rebuilt a little before the 100 hour mark though because I plan on going to a S3 SC. Figure I might as well rebuild it just for a piece of mind since its a bigger wheel, more boost, more airflow, more stress on clutch and such. 76 hours on my current SC, for the most part, but only 20 hours on the S2 wheel and GH washers.

    I have 130 hrs on the S/C and about 70 on the washers. I think 100hrs. like Jerry said is the perfect time to rebuild. Mine is overdue looking at it.

    I would say 100 hrs too unless you have a aftermarket ECU.They turn more RPM's and I would recommend 50 hrs.I've seen failer at 70-90 hrs with aftermarket ECU's.
