Default Guess what came in the mail?

If you're wondering why I've started so many threads with supercharger questions lately, then you've probably guessed it!

The Vortech v3 kit that I ordered a few days ago just got here. I will get pics if anyone is interested, but I have a question first. I bought it used, and when it got here a piece rolled out of the inside of the head unit. I am not sure if it was supposed to be there or if it just rolled in there during shipping. It is the thing I am holding, it rolled out of the hole there to the right. Any idea what it is and if it broke off of something? There are no rough edges on it, it's hollow in the middle as well. I'm thinking it just rolled into the head unit during shipping but I'd like someone who actually knows to give me some input.

edit: After some scrounging, it looks like it was some sort of mega-washer for a bolt. I don't know where the bolt goes, but it's good to know it wasn't supposed to be inside the head unit.

I prefer 'mega-washer'. :P my ignorance is showing..

I'm about to go through a parts list and see if I have everything. I have a spare throttle body now that I'm gonna sell. It came with a BBK pulley so I need to find a measuring tape and see what size it is.

edit: Pics incoming, does this look like an underdrive pulley kit? give me a second to upload pics.

Thanks lol. It looks like the guy who I bought from(he was selling it for his friend) was a little uninformed. He said there was a smaller pulley on there, but I think this is part of an underdrive pullet kit. Am I right?

Did he have any complaints about the kit? Those U/D pullies would have slowed down the blower making it put out little to no boost. Wonder if that's why he sold it?

I don't think they were on there. I think his friend was just misinformed. I'm not sure why they were included but I'm not going to ask questions.
