Supercharger sprung a leek

Well I was checking the water for the supercharger last week and noticed oil all over the motor. Looks like the blower itself has a blown gasket and was throwing oil. Its still under warranty from paxton just taking a while to hear anything from gsmotorsports. Hopefully wont take too long till its back up.

Steve, Deal with Paxton direct. Scott only warranties his kit for a year, but the warranty on the blower is 3 years from Paxton. If you ship the blower off to GSM, they'll only ship it off to Paxton for repairs. Besides, Paxton has better customer service than GSM.
