It's funny you mention that, AJ. When I hit the track for the first time in my '04 Cobra (bone stock at the time) it developed a crack in the SC reservoir. I ran the crap out of it for 3 hours before we noticed the problem...crazy part, it showed zero knock in the logs
. Eaton superchargers build a lot more heat than centrifugal SC's too.
