    It was out and apart 50000 miles ago for porting.
    Cleaned it up and greased the rear bearings and stripped the rotors. The rotors only had a couple places were they were starting to peel on the edges. Some small amout of case contact high and in back. Small scars on one side of rear from radial rotor movement. The hose is the one on the fixed orifice bleed behind the lower intake, that blows back into the passenger side valve cover.

    Pretty impressive. I think you got one of the better ones! What pulleys are you running?

    probably an ignorant question, but what is the best way to strip the rotors?

    Maybe a dumb question, but why would you want to strip the rotors?? And also, do most people do this when the blower is disassembled?

    Methel Ethel..was she fast?
    If the Teflon starts to peel then it may come off and plug the innercooler. Sometimes they strip themselves. I had a 99 that ingested some coolant..pulled it apart and the rotor coating was nearly gone...all over the innercooler was a paste like substance...teflon.

    Further, when the blower is overspun the IAT2 tends to rise. You can reduce the increase in IAT2 by stripping the rotors. Many of the SV offer to strip rotors when you have the blower ported for the same reasons.

    i dont understand why the rotors are even coated in teflon from the factory if it causes so many problems down the line...
