So I just got this car and am going over a few thing's, the engine itself sound's a bit loud. Though I'm unsure if it's normal or what. I made a few video's to show what I mean...

Just an inspection prior to doing any work on the car..

Here is another with the car running after adding S/C oil and doing a oil change...

Anything you guy's see/hear, lemme know what it is. I'm loving the car just still learning it.

It sounds fine but I would replace both idler pullys and belts. While its running look at the harmonic ballancer and make sure its not wobbleing. Sounds like you need to change out your ps fluid and or pump. Rack is no fun to replace.

I'll check the balancer out when I leave from work.. I planed on doing the belts, was just waiting on a some spare cash.

Yea when I got the car the PS reservoir was dry. I filled it up and though it got better, I think the pump took a hit.

It sounds normal. Since it takes about 6 oz of fluid to fill an empty supercharger (to bottom of threads at fill hole) then your snout seal is probably leaking and needs to be replaced. You can buy one from SCP or Spinning wheels.
