    RXP-X power loss????????

    Were up to 2 hours on the X and had a major power loss. Its almost as if I had a supercharger failure. I checked the hoses, the SC hoses are on and tight, the exhaust hoses are tight, the 08s have metal washers so I have ruled out a washer failure, but dang its just like when my 07 lost its washers, or when I forgot to tighten a exhaust clamp when I put a through the hole exhaust, any ideas?

    Its not pulling at all, its like half of its horspower is gone. Only revs out to about 5500-6000, has to crank over a few times to ignite. It runs fine no misses it just acts like it only has about 100 hp, no check engine light no codes nada. Its just plain weird it has no power, I checked the obvious (easy) but it acts exactly like my 07 did when the supercharger clutch failed.
