I have had my JRSC installed on my 2000 civic for about 10,000 miles. The total miles on my car is 50,000. I just recently changed my oil and found that my rear main gasket was leaking. It seemed strange to me because usually I only see that on cars over 100,000 miles. Could the supercharger be the cause of that? Any help would be appreciated cause I'm a little pissed that I have to spend an entire day pullin out my transmission. oh well.

That happened to my dad's accord once because he revved it up pretty high while driving while it was cold out and the car was cold. I doubt the SC would have caused that.

Honda has some bulletins out on leaking rear main seals for certain cars. I've done a couple of Civic's at my work with only about 50-60K on them that had leaking seals. You may want to call up your local dealer and see if they will help you out at all. Otherwise now is the time to look into upgrading your clutch/flywheel if you haven't already.
