Does this sound right? ProCharger video

Since I have never heard a centrifugal blower before I have no clue how there supposed to sound and this doesnt sound right :huh: Now IM hoping its more or less just becuase the dam thing isnt tuned yet :( but it still dont sound right.

I checked the oil in the blower and its full. The belt is running on all the pullies and seems to be ok. I did remove the UDP and put the stock one back on.

Is it possible I tourqed the crank pulley on to much?

The day I put the blower on I didnt touch anything. Stock pullies back on and bolted the blower up and thats it.

Now I did show the video to some one and they said it sounds like the piston hitting the valve??? I dunno how this could be. I drove the car the day before and it was perfect and even had ford check the car and everything was good.

Maybe Im just paranoid. In the video you can totaly tell my fuel map is way out and that why I didnt let it run much LOL Tune should be here soon but I had to start the car just to make sure she was still alive. Maybe im on crack and thats how the cent blower is supposed to sound. Like I said Im prolly the only person in Regina with one so I have no idea how it should sound.

Any way here is the video.

The fluttering is most due to the the fuel map being out. Going from the 19lb to 42lbs. That should be fixed with the tune but ya. I dunno if the blower is supposed to sound that loud LOL. I did how ever upgrade the 8psi pulley to a 10psi.

Thanks for the idea. The more things like this ppl post the less chance there is I miss something.

The main reason I wanted the kit was becuase of its stealth "look" I guess that idea is out the window.
