I finally received my Vortech V2 SQ SC Trim from the states the other day and have noticed a strange noise coming from it when you turn the pulley by hand. It sounds like metal rubbing or lightly scraping against metal. Does anyone know if this sound is normal as i want to make sure that the blower is 100% before i start buying the bits to install it from CAPA. Should there be any noise coming from it when turning it by hand?
Thanks

Mine did the same when i first got mine, it does make a rubbing noise.

Its all normal, You do have to "run in" a blower too, about 50-100 km's they recommend of gentle driving. needs oil before you start turning it.
