    Got a full rebuild at Jon Bond
    You "feel" the difference because you want to "feel" the difference. Since you just spent money on the upgrade you "have" to feel the difference

    Yea I bit the bullit and sent mine on to him too. It didnít need a full rebuild just seals but what the hell. Howís yours holding up so far? As I understand, Prochargers are notorious for leaking

    How many miles did you all average before the seal started leaking ?

    It was leaking when I got it with 50k miles. I have no idea when it started

    Well that doesnít make me feel good. I could have ordered the seals and replaced them myself for that matter.

    I had 3 rebuilds and one brand new P1SC from ProCharger in 176K miles!!

    All of 'em leaked a little and I thought the last one (the new one) was not leaking but Dave found out differently once he got the car home......it leaked at the output shaft seal and into the plumbing I think??

    Hopefully Jon Bond uses better stuff than ProCharger does??

    I was told the average rebuild mileage was around 60 - 80k miles. Iíve only had mine on for 17k miles.

    My procharger has about 45k miles on it. A tip I got from a local engine builder here was to get the procharger hot after its oil change and open the fill hole. This would cause some pressure to escape due to the heat/expansion, you can hear the pssstttttt. Seal it up again and as the unit cools there would be negative pressure / vacuum. Doing this prevents internal pressure on the seals, it seems to work because I have no leaks and neither do any of his customers. I don't know maybe just lucky.

    Thanks for sharing. It actually makes sense to me. I will definitely give this a try.

    I tried that before with no luck!!

    If oil leaks out under pressure air will likely leak in under partial vacuum but you may be luckier than I was??

    I even vented the dipstick plug once to keep it from building internal pressure.......didn't work either so I just let it leak!!

    Funny thing is it never leaked enough to be off the plastic piece on the dipstick between 5K mile changes but it sure made a mess!!

    Thanks. Hopefully the install will be a little bit easier than I imagine. Especially with the headers installed. Thatís new to me with long tubes. I still need to buy a new water pump.
