    VXii 3.8 Supercharged
    #Supercharger rotors flaking metal

    Guys anyone ever seen this before?#
    Ride is Supercharged 3.8 VX.#
    I had an overheating issue recently due to blown head gasket. As i pulled top end down, i noticed the chrome coating on blower rotors was peeling and flaking off.#
    All this coating was sucked all through the valves and chambers.
    No apparent damage to bores or heads and i havent pulled down blower yet.
    My query is... Do i have to rebuild blower with new rotors? Will they still seal efficiently without the chrome coating?
    This is my first supercharger so any advice would be great thanks folks.
