    All I have found the rebuild kits online but haven’t found many people having issues with their TVS2300.
    I bought a take off blower and it sounds like a bad power steering pump at idle after I installed it. It’s got that grind/whine at idle. A few people that have heard it say that it’s not normal the blower should be quiet at idle.
    Do you guys think it could just be a bearing?
    I’ve rebuilt and an old m112 in that past.

    How many miles on it? It shouldn't be making noise like that. Does the pulley have a lot of play in it? Sounds like it might have been overspun; maybe a bad bearing.

    Is this a take off ‘13-14 TVS?
    Did you inspect the rotor pack or have any pics?
    Probably could talk to BPS or Stegmeir on rebuild info

    It is a 13-14 takeoff. I’m honestly not sure how many miles were on it. The car has been in storage almost 3 years while I was in Germany.
    The guy I bought the TVS from had 2 2014’s that he sent to Shelby and turned into Super Snakes. He was an older fellow that retireed and moved to Florida. I picked it up from his house and got to meet him. I didn’t see anything that jumped out at me when I bought it, but I didn’t take the cover off or anything.
    I bought the blower and put it on right before I left for Germany. It made the noise from the beginning and I just thought it was a louder than the stock blower.
    The clutch went in the car soon after the install and I put it in storage. I’m back and the person I’m having do the clutch asked what’s wrong with that thing.
    I figured I would ask because it doesn’t seem like a common issue with them.

    Maybe check the oil and post a vid of the noise?

    Yeah, based on that I’d hope it has/had supercharger oil in it. I believe it’s a lifetime or 100k mike oil from Eaton, but it could’ve been drained? I don’t see a reason to do that but you don’t know the history.
    Good luck.
