    i see on youtube people doing diys for making their supercharger whine louder but was wondering if any of you guys have tried it and how it went? or maybe if you got a special exhaust that made it louder like maybe quicksilver, borla, supersprint, etc. that i know make exhaust systems for the rrs.

    Hi all, I have been playing with the Torque Pro app and have been monitoring boost pressure. I was told that stock pressure for the 5.0 SC is 9.6 psi. I noticed that the electric throttle does it's own thing regardless if you have the pedal to the floor. I was able to see the throttle come open...

    Hey guys, as part of my timing job I had to remove the supercharger, so I thought I would post a pic of what the drain looks like on the back of the supercharger, you can see it's just a hex/allen style fitting (I forget what size): I "suppose" you could change the fluid with the...

    Special tools for reinstalling supercharger & valve covers? Hey guys, in the middle of doing my timing stuff, workshop manual shows special tools for reinstalling supercharger and valve covers? For the supercharger, it shows using 4 alignment pins. It just doesn't seem these are needed but...

    Hello, I am new here! My timing chain tensioner collapsed and bent all valves on driver side head. I pulled the head off and had new valves installed, then reinstalled cylinder head and now I need to know further instruction on setting the valve clearance with solid bucket lifters. I cannot...

    My 2014 Range Rover HSE, bought new from the dealer and now at 64K miles, has a rattling noice coming from the engine. The dealer say it is the bearing from the supercharger. Costing close to $2,000 to fix. Seems a lot to me for a bearing . Anybody having experience with this ? Actually like...

    I’ve been thinking about getting a set of aftermarktet crank and supercharger pulleys. Found a set on eurotoys and looks like it can do quite a bit in terms of responsiveness and HP/Torque, especially with the ECU tune. Has anyone used their stuff and any regrets? Since the crank and...

    Was thinking of changing out the supercharger coupling on my 2013 with roughly 75K miles. Has anyone done this as preventative maintenance? Is it worth the cost or should I wait until I start hearing some noise?

    Hi! does any one know how to Diagnos a supercharger on a 2006 Supercharge with 200,000 km? The vehicle was purchased with about 3 liters of coolant in the chocolate milk looking oil and compression roughly 15lbs per cylinder. The battery was gone so there are no codes stored to be read. I have...

    How many miles does the supercharger on a 2010-2012 Full size range rover (or sport) typically run before it fails or needs replacement? What's the cost to replace if it goes? What are the known issues? thanks, Jon

    Hi all, Just recently aquired a 2017 RRS auto. Loving it so far. Just have to ask if anyone knows any technical info on the factory supercharger?? All I can seem to find out is that it is manufactured by Eaton I believe one of their TVS 6th gen superchargers. As there are a few different...

    I was watching this Motor Trend video about the SVR: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cL6jq2XteeQ. One of the things that piqued my interest was when he said @ about 2:40, "...they told the supercharger to allow more boost." So, can I do that to my 2012 Range Rover S/C? I'd love to have 550hp...

    Did a search on this with no hits on a DIY or even if it is feasible. Would like to know where to tap in for the vacuum/boost line. Thanks.

    Hey, My 06 L322 SC has developed some supercharger lag, similar to turbo lag for anyone that's driven a car with an aftermarket turbo on it. Previously, the boost was there instantly when I'd floor it. Now, sometimes, not always, there's some hesitation and lag. I read the Eaton supercharger...

    Hi guys Did some looking but did not find anyone mentioning this. I was wondering how much it cost or how much you paid to have the supercharger replaced on the 5.0 engine? I want to do a pulley with a tune on the truck however would like to know if the supercharger does fail how much it would...
