    Sorry to hear about the supercharger. There is a few company that rebuild supercharger. The Helcat being so new maybe the issue, were there is a will, there is a way. Here is a few to start with. Just start making a few calls I'm sure there is someone.
    I have use Stiegemeier in the past to port a E55 blower. He's a pretty smart guy and know the Cobra blower very well. He may have a lead for you.

    Do you know what cause the failure? Good Luck, I hope you get it worked out

    There are a few failed blowers floating around that might be good for parts, call Josh @ HHP and see what he can tell you.

    Shouldn't most of the Hellcats out there still be under warranty?

    With the Mods he has on the car, the answer would be most liklely No... Not sure if people have been following it but FCA have been getting really picky about warranty work in the past few months.

    Did you have the crank pulley pinned or is that still intact?

    the only major blower I have seen was from months ago when someone was fogging it and it blew off.
    I havent see or heard of anyone having blower issues
