Let me add a little more punch to this.......2 of us are running Series 1 SC'* at over 16,000 rpm'*. And have been for some time now. We use GM Supercharger oil EXCLUSIVELY (and one of us is an ASE certified Mech).

Default OH

I asked cause the dealers near me never seem to have it, and when they do, the only time I can go out to get some is on the weekend(and most of the dealers near me arent open on Sat)and the local Auto Parts store doesnt carry it. That was why I was seeking an alternative.

Default Big Price Difference

$7.50 at ZZPerformance and $3.75 at GMDirect? ZZ says theres is Synthetic, but GMDirect doesnt, but I guess it has to be cause the part numbers are the same.

Buy 4 from GM. Make sure you have enough to flush, with 5 minutes of idle between. I did mine 3 times until it came out super-clean. I'm sure it had never been touched.

Default Supercharger Oil change for UNDER $20?

Yes, its true, I changed my supercharger oil yesterday in my 01 SSEi and it cost me less than $20. The best part, the tools I bought to help me, cost under $5 and I got them at Walmart. Yes..you heard it right. WALMART :o Heres what you need.
1. Supercharger Oil (Got it from my local GM parts dealer for under $14 for 2 bottles)
2. Walmart sells a Injector Type Baster(as in turkey baster, in the kitchen utensils area) that is steel, with an injection needle attachment. This needle attachment is PERFECT for 'sucking' out the old oil. Cost? Under $4.
3. Also bought a small baster, about 6 inches long. Ended up taking the suction bulb off of it and used it as a funnel for the new oil. Cost? Under $1.

That steel baster with the angled needle attachment was PERFECT for suctioning out the old oil. I just suctioned it all out and put it into a empty pop bottle. (Of course now I just have to SAFELY dispose of the oil) Since its steel, it can be cleaned when your done and used for other applications(sucking out and replaceing P.*.Fluid, or Brake Fluid, or whatever..) Although, willwren did suggest buying a few more bottles and flushing it a couple of times until it was clean. Since my old oil was a dark brown color, perhaps Ill do it again soon when I have a little more time, but it only took me 20 min at the most to do this.

Ok...maybe I sound like a giddy school boy, but I just wanted to share that bit of information with all of you.

P.*. Car ran GREAT this morning on my way to work. A noticable difference.

so how many bottles or ML or grams does it take to fill the whole thing?? GM guy says 1 bottle would be more then enough.. but the damm bottle is small.. and I have to do Tamara'* too.. so I bought 3.. but it sounds like that won't be enough..

Bill.. you flushed it 3 times in a row ?? is that necessary ??

I had 75k miles of unkown driving on the car. I wanted it clean. I flushed twice, then filled. So drain, fill, run, drain fill, run, drain, fill.

Overkill, but good insurance. It came absolutely clean the last time.
