Default Yucky stinky

Checked all my fluids this morning and thought i might as well check the supercharger oil while im at it, so i took the plug out and almost instantly started to gag, that oil stunk like you wouldnt believe, and it was like a really dark grey akmost black colour. I changed it when i got the car about 5 monthes ago, gonna do it again. Is this normal? it still feels pretty slick.

I'm not really sure. I think it somewhat depends on how much you left in there the last time. You might want to try a flush to see if that helps prevent degradation.

Yea, that oil smells bad! I took mine out to take off the nose & change the coupler on the weekend and my wife thought something had died in the garage.
I bought a syringe with a clear tube from the Walmart auto department for about $6.00 and it got nearly all of the oil out.
