Oil in SC intake and IC
Hey guys, I pulled my SC out today to check the slip moment and found oil in my intake and IC pipes/IC.
I do have the 08 SC clutch kit but my housing is a Rude 1 so I do not have that oiler hole.
My guess is that the seal behind that SC impeller is leaking but before I pulled my SC apart to check i wanted to see if anyone else has had this issue before?

This is usually the early warning that the supercharger bearings have excessive play.
Bearings will not last 50 hours @ high rpm.

oil in sc intake and ic
have you checked your oil level? Dropped my rxp in for a service,when i got it back took seat off to clean same and found oil everywhere.Did some homework in greenhulk archieve,found oil filled to top mark on dipstick at service.this creates blow-by in breather and oil ends up in intake to sc.I had a BOV fitted and oil was misting from same.most people on here recommend running just over 1/2 way on dipstick.hope this helps

Hey guys, I do have a catch can, hardly anything in it. Oil level was perfect when I installed my RUDE with the new 08 clutch kit... now oil level is down to the bottom indentation after 7 hours of use.
I cant understand how the bearings could be bad since the clutch kit comes with new bearings and I just installed them with the kit.
Now mind I had a solid 40 hours on my RUDE before I installed my 08 clutch kit and never had oil in my IC/Intake.
At this point I dont know what to do. I appreciate the help guys!
