Use only the proper oil, NOTHING else.

I just change my SC oil and used the GM Supercharger Oil. It'* not cheap, $9+ for a 4oz bottle (2 bottles will be needed), but its the only stuff you should use.

Ya, it should be changed about every 75k or so. It'* easy to do and costs about $8 for the oil, plus shipping. Only takes about a half hour. There should be a write up in the how to area.
