Hello, my name is ***** ***** I'm here to help get your problem solved. This is about a 4.5 hour job labor to replace the supercharger. It is a $2200 part new which is why it is costing so much. I found a rebuilt supercharger for $1200 and a used one for $500 which will save you at least $1000. Here are the links to buy, let me know if you have more questions. Thanks.
