procharger took a dump

well today was a very mixed emotions day... i finally got my car back from my brother and all was well..... but ( and a very big one ) on the way back from skiing i was hearing a weird noise, i determined it to be the procharger... while dropping my friend off i was listening to it closer and it completley crapped out. bad . very bad. so thank god for AAA and free towing back to my house and i just spent the last 2 hours ripping out my pride and joy, the shaft play on the blower is ridiculous. the fins are all gnared up on the ends from grinding against the housing. AHHGGGGHHHH!! this sucks asdklfjasdf! time to send it out and get her fixed. maybe i should just go turbo , i think this is a sign

Yeah that's probably happened to everyone who owns a Procharger ATLEAST once. I know my head unit was sent to get fixed by the previous owner for the same problem. They need to redesign the blower to make it more reliable than it already is...or isn't

It will cost about 650+ to repair. Sorry to hear about the procharger. Good luck.

I must be part ProCharger cause I took a dump this morning

Just kidding.... Be absolutly SURE you go through the charge piping, intercooler and intake manifold and check to see if any fragments of the impellers may have made there way into them.

Also change your oil and filter... an engine flush would also bee a good thing. No sense in taking any chances with the motor.
