That's a fatigue crack. There was some serious vibration going on in there

Remember the last time you pulled it apart and it was still completely coated? I really doubt it was the case I would be more prone to blame the moving parts.

This blower never made the boost it should have. It was always noisy and it felt way to tight
when you out it together.

Wow that is a bummer, check with MP maybe he can help you out. Or maybe its time for KB or TVS ;)

The crack originating from the bolt hole makes me think it was over-tightened at some point.

I had one fail on me, too. The anaerobic sealer didn't set and the oil leaked out. The bearings apparently don't like running dry. I've even had a brand new tube not set up. I'll never use the stuff again.

I have always used rtv myself. I have an mpiii thats mint to replace this
with so I am getting I powdercoated now. The abrsdive rotor pack in an mpiii
Will be fine I just am going to take the od back to 25% 33% is a bit scary with
An mpiii

no kidding it will actually make some boost now! the mpiii/mp abradive rotor pack and 25% od should at least make 16/17psi... I hope....

I've got an MPIII case but it's got a bad right rear bearing and Charles at MP thought it might crack the case to try to replace it. I've smoothed off where the rotor scraped the case on the end but not sure what to do about the bearing.
