    Dealer is saying there is a coolant leak in supercharger due to improper milling and fitting to the top of motor
    they claim mine is not the only engine. Anyone have any details on this?

    AFAIK, there are at least 2 others with coolant leaks from supercharger.
    they are getting the superchargers replaced.

    Yikes, did you see any visible evidence of leaking in the engine bay? Perhaps something other members could look for? Noticed mine was running rough on startup a couple days ago... :eek:

    Hopefully they get a new blower fast and do a nice neat job on the replacement. Good luck and keep us in the loop on progress.

    Was wondering if we would start seeing more defects popping up after putting pressure on the SC plant to up production #'s.
