    Thinking of buying a S2 montecarlo witha Volumex supercharger conversion

    Seen a montecarlo with a volumex supercharger fitted but no details known about the conversion anything I should look out for to make sure it was carried out properly. It is fitted and it works so really only talking about refinements and how good a job was made.
    Any pointers would be greatly appreciated
    Cheers
    Phil

    Make sure there is adequate room for the intake and that Vx belt is routed properly and doesn't foul. Check belt and tensioner and for any bearing or bad noises coming from the supercharger. Check the plugs to see proper combustion on all cylinders. Check for fuel or coolant in the oil. Check wheel bearings. Check for rust, especially around front hood grills. Some trim pieces can be hard to find. Roof straps can be spendy. If nothing glaringly wrong, snap it up quick and enjoy.
    Are you in US and if so, which part?
