Angry AZ Crew: My car is in a COMA!

Yes you heard right guys.....I found out today that my PC blower is spewing oil into the intake piping. So when I send it in to ATI I will not be driving it. I can change the injector's out and reflash back to stock and put my CAI back on but I really don't want to do that. I guess it depends on how long it takes....we'll see.

I will keep you guys updated when I hear back from ATI.

Sorry to hear, hopefully it shouldn't take too long. Do you think it was due to adding too much oil or just a seal leak?

Let me know if you need a ride for Firebird night.

No it's pretty easy I just have to unbolt the blower, 3 bolts. Thanks though.

Tom: It's not because of too much oil. This was an issue with the previous owners as well. ATI just can't seem to get it right. I will find out more. Maybe cheap seals who knows....

UPDATE

I called ATI and I will not be charged anything to have this thing looked at or possibly rebuilt. I have to ship the blower to them tomorrow. I will keep everyone posted as this goes along.
