    Default Blower base gasket

    First timer installing a supercharger.

    Install gasket dry, oiled, glued to one side?

    Thanks

    Dry or I like to put a very light thin thin film of grease on both sides. If you have to take it off or will help and also I was told helps the gasket seal a bit. When I say thin I mean put on with your fingers and almost nothing but residue.

    DRY.....no need to put ANY sealant on a blower gasket! Old Guy tip tho.....sprinkle a little baby powder on both sides of the gasket, spread it evenly with your fingers....and the gasket will never stick for the next blower removal. JMO, Jocko

    Plus with the o-ring you can R and R it and not have to find a gasket.
