I am REALLY grateful you posted these, @jlglr4 ! I was about to dig in to replacing the plastic lines before I read @Michael Gain 's article on his own experience there. I hadn't planned on pulling off the supercharger. Now I have more parts to order.​

Yeah, I think definitely pull the supercharger. Only good way to reach the rear crossover. Pulling the just the snout to get access to the front crossover is probably harder than pulling the whole thing. That snout is really stuck on pretty good with RTV, and then you still can’t reach the rear crossover very well. Good tips in there about how to pry up on the super to get it off (it has some alignment pegs that makes it feel still attached), and watch out for the coolant tube and knock sensors that are located under the super charger.

Yes, I saw that in your writeup, too, @jlglr4 . Appreciate your attention to detail in this as well!

One thing not on the parts list: when replacing the water pump and the oil cooler tube (LR028136), it comes with one seal, but the O-ring is sold separately. $13 for an O-ring. I'll get a part number when I pick it up and add it to the list.

Can’t remember anymore. Maybe I bought it at the counter (I did the parts lists from my online orders). Or maybe I forgot and just reused the old one. Whatever I did, it hasn’t started leaking (yet).

LR030593 is the part number.
