Are our Eaton m62 superchargers suppost to make sounds at idle - 1800 rpm or so... I realize its dependant on pulley size. Mine makes quite a racket but isnt leaking anything. Kinda like the blower fans in the dash is running at its lowest level with little bit of mechinical spinning sound. At 2000 rpm it goes silent.

I don't have the hood apron on. So its louder than usual to begin with. Sounds like a diesel subaru in some repects.

it sounds fine from your description. mine sounds like a tea kettle gently boiling. pobably because i was raised on british cars. you can always release the belt tension and feel the bearings. the fact that is is pretty much silent on the road is a good sign too. eat two hondas and call me in ther morning!:)
