Default Changing supercharger oil

K, I know how to and all, I bought one container (4oz.). I know my supercharger is a bit low, but I don't know by how much. Once all the fluid is sucked out with the car tipped up on one side, how much will the SC take?

I belive the oil level should be to the bottom of the threads in the hole. How many bottles I'm not sure. I think mine took just over one to fill it up.

all that came out was a bit over 2oz. I put the whole bottle in, that put it right to the bottom thread. Should be good to go!

I changed mine last month and it took 2 bottles to the bottom of the threads, series 2 may take more than series 1 though, need Willwren to step in here.

Little over a bottle, if you got less out than that, you didn't suck out enough. It'* hard to get. That'* why I flush and fill 2 or 3 times, to make sure I got it all. When I changed my coupler, it took about 1.5 bottles to fill from bone dry.

Moving to forced induction.....
