Default How many miles on supercharger?

How many miles is everyone getting on their supercharger before the bearings need attention? I've got a Vortech V3 and I've always kept the oil changed and at the right level. I think I've got a new growl coming from that area and I need to check it out. Just curious how long these things are good for?

I've got about 25,000-30,000 miles on my head unit. I'm just wondering if I should send it back to Vortech for a go-over.

thanks!

Hi
I am unsure about the miles but has been around six years without a problem.

I have about 15K on my 600b. Besides belts, the only thing I had to replace was the lousy idler pulley that ATI provides to curve around the SC better. Tried to find a better solution that would fit but I have not come up with any yet.
