After replacing the rack and pinion, the car won't stay running. I'm going with the fact that the one bolt hole on the SC top is stripped out.
What would be the best way to go about the stripped out hole? Have it re-threaded or get another case?

Get your self a 8mm x 1.25 helicoil kit at your local hardware or auto parts store.

Well I guess that wasn't just the only problem. The intake plenum was cracked open at an old weld-job. I over tightened it.

Also, with the supercharger, it doesn't spin as smooth as it did. I can easily guess it's time for a rebuild. Since I want to have the car running again, I bought another m90 to stand in until I rebuild the original one.

100% agree. Done this one a couple times now, piece of cake and holds just fine. Be sure to remove the bottoming tab once installed or you'll need a shorter bolt.

Never done a helicoil, but it seems straightforward.
