Howdy guys. I have an 02 gt 2valve with a vortech supercharger with the powercooler. I noticed a hole (about 3/8) in the 2.75 id discharge hose coming directly from the sc. Once I go t it off I realized it was intentionally cut to be there. It was leaking air of course so I called vortech and they said it should not be there. Installed a new one w/o a hole and now my vac/boost gauge does not hardly move and it felt like my car was being choked. Car does have a bypass valve which is functional instead of a blow off. What gives?

Vortech is right. You should definitely not have a hole in the discharge pipe. With that fixed, you should be seeing more boost. Was the gauge reading right before? I would test it with an air compressor set to the gauge's max reading. If it reads the same as the compressor, then you have a restriction or leak in the line to it or you have a huge leak at one of the discharge hoses.
