Ok the blower was good, no nicks, bends, or scratching. The internals are still tight and like oxford said it would have to pass through the I/C before it got to the TB which is highly unlikely. Now the oil is from the PCV because this dick cheese that worked on my car while I was out to sea ripped out my crankcase breathers and said that a PCV system was needed for a blower which I now know as false. I don't have any tubing that looks like that anywhere. I wanted to pull the heads today but this ****ty georgia weather hit again and I am stuck with rain for the week it looks like. Now to what mutilation said....I must tell you that I am a machinist and a detailed one at that. To think that a thing of metal slipped by me is hard to believe. You have to realize I work on a multi billion dollar submarine everyday and missing stuff like that could kill me or a_pequin (if he was on my sub) so I am very detail oriented when I do installs. So yea...I'm going to tear apart the procharger and check the journal bearings and the race bearings (I think thats what it has inside it.) and I'm going to buy a rebuild kit for it just in case. I'm also going to inspect all aspects of the car that could have contributed to the metal before my new motor goes in because this does worry me not just slightly but greatly.

I'm gonna have to go with this. Curious to see what it turns out being once you open it up.

Sailor',

Did you originally install the s/c, has it always been inter-cooled? I ask because the pieces look like they could have passed through a blower--not necessarily your if the car was previously f/i?

Just thinking out loud here...

didnt say it had to be you. are you the one and only owner? have you done 100% of all maintenance to your car?

hell it could have even happened at the ford factory during assembly.

I would highly recommend not taking apart you're supercharger. The reason vortech/procharger/etc do not sell rebuild kits directly is because the amount of precision/tools/and measuring equipment needed to properly set up the blower is tremendous and the smallest degree off could cause u a destroyed S/C or even worse. There use to be some joe smoe company that selled generic rebuil kits for these kinds of blower but in no way would I wanna trust that. Back to the metal in the intake, do you have an jerk offs that don't like u that could of actually put that into you're intake tube?

Dude, I'm in the Navy. Any number of non-qualified guys that I beat for not having their submarine warfare pin would do something like this...the only question is when would they have had the access to it? lol. And I understand about the rebuild of the S/C. I have read over and over again about rebuilding it. Now I would love to have it sent in for the D1 internals but so not have that money right now because it is a $900 job. But I have all the precision tools for the rebuild. Outside and inside MIC, torque wrenches both in/lbs. and ft/lbs. feeler gauges...pretty much anything precision I need I have at my disposal. I'm a machinist after all lol. But thank you for the warning I appreciate it.

I sure you can rebuild your supercharger yourself. I've heard of people doing it themselves and it's so damn cheap bc of that. Do it

Take a magnet to that metal. Is it aluminum or metal?

My grandfather, also an ME like my father, always told us that when something broke you had two choices--pay someone that knows what they are doing to fix it, or learn to fix it yourself.

If you do not wish to pay someone, or do not have the funds to do so, then taking the broken thing apart and attempting to fix it will make your situation no worse, and may mean that you succeed or at the worst learn something to be better prepared for the next time.

I have never opened up a belt-driven blower, though I have rebuilt Eaton and Judson units. I have seen cutaways and parts diagrams for them and have not observed any level of complexity or fit that falls into the realm of ultra (or even high) precision by any measure.

I suspect that a competent Navy machinist will be quite capable of the task, and likely able to remake any of the machined components as well.
