    RIVA Ceramic Hybrid Supercharger Bearings

    Who can that tell about them?! They are necessary or not?

    I would just use the metal ones. I don't trust ceramic.

    From what I know I havent heard of any ceramic bearing failures from Riva.When they were first introdused from Jerry there was an issue but has since been resolved..As far as being needed??IMO No..Is there a differance??Yes..I have 2 superchargers..One with the OEM bearings and one with the ceramics...The one with the ceramic bearings has way less drag thatn the one with the OEM bearings..Everybody will have a differant opinion on the bearings..Its pretty much personal preferance...

    I've heard many stories like yours... I would NEVER run them due to the consequences they can cause
