Just finished the install, and want to make sure not to neglect routine maintenance. (First supercharger I have ever owned, so I dont know what routine maintenance is.)

I know that the SC takes special supercharger oil, about 5 oz from what I can tell.

How do you check the oil level?
Do I need to ever change the oil?
Is there any other routine maintenance I need to do?

Thanks in advanced

Pretty good tread about this...

Cliffs notes: no real way to check it. To change it just suck it out with a syringe/small flexible hose or take SC off. Takes 4 oz to fill. Interval....seems to be 100K, or "less" with "high revs", "tracking", etc... no firm answer that I found on this. I changed mine at 28K while the SC was off for other things.
