Hi: Does anyone know where I can find a rebuilt supercharger for a 97 Riv? The problem is I need it fast. I am in Long Island, N.Y.
Thank you, Ciro307

1) quick and cheap: Morad Parts Company may have some removed from 3800s that will work. Ships UPS, overnite is possible but U will have to phone. Morad is in Ohio to get it quick. Ed Morad knows his stuff w/r/t GM 3800 engines, N/A or blown. Do "search" on this site to find him. He shows some parts on EBay.

2) quick and not so cheap: http://gmsuperchargerpros.com/superchargers.html

3) quick: http://www.magnusonproducts.com/reman/ <-- they rebuild for GM and sell to public

Might try this guy:

http://stores.ebay.com/ABCsupercharger

Never dealt with him personally, but this seems to be his specialty. Good luck.

Are you sure you need a new blower? Very uncommon to see them fail.

Good news: My mechanic just called and he found a rebuilt unit locally. I'll be up and running in 2 days.
Thank you, Ciro

another 'quick' option to keep in mind - you can just take the supercharger belt off and drive it that way for a looong time. Not as good performance, but you'll save a ton on gas!!

Same thing as keeping your foot out of the gas!

Aaron's right. THe S/C rarely fails. It may just be the coupler. I hate to see you drop a thousand bucks for nothing.
