    sc failure question

    The front bearing failed on my sc. The wheel was rubbing on the housing bad and there's oily metal filings in the intake hose. I am going to pull the intake manifold and clean it. My question is should I pull the head and inspect the valves to see if the aluminum dust has stuck itself into the seats?

    your valves will be fine. Give your intercooler a good cleaning though. The IC would have trapped any debris before going into the engine.
