NO! Only put GM or Intense (I think it is GM, not sure) Genuine Supercharger oil in it. Regardless of what someone outside of the forum told you, other oils could harm it, and can't take the extreme temps of the SC.

Moved to Forced Induction.

As already very well stated, NOTHING but GM Supercharger Oil. From the dealer or your favorite vendor here.

Never use motor oil on a supercharger - Always use GM Supercharger oil. they are available at any dealership and only 6 bucks a bottle if that. and only use 1 - 1.5 bottles for an M62 supercharger. Why risk using other oils not specified for the supercharger.
